BRITISH AIRWAYS, American Airlines and Iberia have received the regulatory US green light to operate a joint business on transatlantic flights. Following European Union approval on 14 July, the airlines have now been granted anti-trust immunity from the Department of Transportation. Virgin Atlantic is fuming but can do little about authorisation, which is similar to that approved for the Star Alliance and Skyteam carriers. The airlines plan to launch the transatlantic venture this autumn and will co-operate commercially on flights between the EU, Switzerland and Norway and the US, Canada and Mexico. Customers will be able to travel more easily on all three airlines’ combined route access. Customers have to be very careful in choosing flights that are actually operated by the carrier of their choice, there being a total difference of standards between the three airlines. www.ba.com www.aa.com www.iberia.com
