British Airways and Iberia have extended code share agreements between South America and the Middle East following their merger in November.
The BA code now appears on Iberia flights between Madrid and San Jose (Costa Rica) and Panama City.
Iberia has added its code to BA flights to Bahrain, Doha, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Kuwait and Muscat. Iberia will also add its code to British Airways’ service to Cape Town. Both airlines fly to Johannesburg and will code share on their respective routes.
Iberia’s flights to Havana will also carry the BA code from mid April.
BA commercial director Andrew Crawley said: “Latin America is a real draw for our travellers and it will be simpler for Iberia’s customers to access the Middle East. All of our customers will now have greater access to South Africa too.”
Passengers can also mix Iberia and BA flights to and from Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Johannesburg, Lagos, Cairo and Tel Aviv, enabling them to suit either their schedule or budget.
