In the wake of their December 9 merger, American Airlines and US Airways are expanding their codesharing to provide customers with access to nearly 6,500 daily flights to more than 275 destinations in the two carriers’ combined global network.
These additional codeshare flights are now available for booking, for travel from February 6.
“This expansion marks another milestone for American Airlines as we successfully implement the world’s largest codeshare, providing our customers convenient access to the best network in the business,” says Scott Kirby, president of American Airlines.
American and US Airways launched the initial phase of their codeshare on January 13. From February 6, the second phase extends the codeshare to nearly all flights throughout their combined global network
The only exceptions are a few international markets which require specific regulatory permissions be obtained for the two carriers to codeshare. The two airlines expect to codeshare on every international flight in these markets by the end of the first quarter.
Through the codeshare, each airline can sell tickets operated by the other carrier using its own flight code and flight number. Customers will be able to combine select flights operated by each airline on a single itinerary when booking travel on aa.com, usairways.com or through travel distribution channels.
When booking with and traveling on American Airlines or US Airways, customers should continue to check in for flights and conduct business with the airline operating their flight, as they did before the launch of their codeshare.
