With British Airways already its sponsor into oneworld, airberlin is to get even closer to the UK carrier with a new codeshare arrangement. This will come into effect on 5 July.
With the agreement BA customers can now buy direct flights on airberlin to the cities of Munster, Nuremburg and Paderborn through ba.com. In addition customers can access airberlin’s wider European network which includes connections from the main German gateways to destinations such as Brindisi and Palermo.
For the German airline the move is even more significant, widening the booking scope. Joachim Hunold, CEO explains: "British Airways is our sponsoring airline within oneworld. That makes this new agreement a milestone for us as we look forward to the coming year, during which Air Berlin will be joining the alliance. Thanks to these codeshare flights with British Airways, our passengers will now have available to them two further airports, in addition to Gatwick and Stansted, from which they can continue their journey towards other destinations in the UK."
Next Saturday 25 June airberlin will host the brand new Boeing 787 Dreamliner direct from the Paris Air Show. British Airways is also a customer for the aircraft. www.airberlin.com
