British Airways Codeshare Agreement, American Airlines Codeshare Agreement

British Airways (BA) and American Airlines (AA), members of Oneworld alliance, have been approved by the Indian government to route codeshare flights to major Indian destinations like Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad and Mumbai.

The codeshare agreement between the two airlines allows American Airlines to place its code (AA) on British Airways’ flights to India from the United States via London Heathrow Airport.

The new codeshare flights to thriving Indian cosmopolitans are scheduled to go on sale starting March 26th 2012 with the first travel date starting March 29th 2012.

Furthermore, the codeshare agreement between American Airlines and British Airways will be complementing the former carrier’s existing India-bound flights with partner airline Jet Airways via Brussels.

The new codeshare agreement between the two airlines is likely to delight US flyers contemplating holidays or business tours to India with convenient choices, greater flexibility and excellent connectivity. 

Over the years, BA and AA, popular luxury full service airlines offering excellent in-flight services, have been the best bet for those leisure business class travellers seeking deals for business class seats for leisurely breaks to India.

The new codeshare agreement between the American Airlines and British Airways is likely to get popular even with those who generally are not inclined to splurge on airfares and look for tickets on cheap flights to India.

Additionally, the agreement will spell bliss for the American Airlines’ AAdvantage members as they will now be able to earn miles, incentive, perks and advantages on the codeshare flights to India with British Airways.
