Aer Lingus & American Airlines have this week extended an existing codeshare which will be utilised mainly on the Dublin-Philadelphia & Chicago routes.
Within this deal also, it extends the Irish carrier’s presence mainly into the U.S domestic network that American has on offer.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Dublin, Philadelphia & Chicago: Aer Lingus & American Codeshare…
- Dallas Fort-Worth
- Las Vegas
- Kansas City
- San Jose
Such a move also represents a big step for Aer Lingus, which will add further connectivity and bolster an existing relationship already established under the Atlantic Joint Business agreement, of which they have been a member of for three years.
In a statement, the Irish carrier said the following on this:
“Today’s announcement marks a crucial step forward in Aer Lingus’ arrangement with American Airlines as well as the existing wider Atlantic Joint Business (AJB) partnership, which includes American Airlines, British Airways, Iberia and Finnair.”
“Aer Lingus joined the Atlantic Joint Business in 2020. The integrated arrangement has brought significant benefits to millions of passengers including lower fares and access to more destinations with better aligned schedules and frequencies, to millions of passengers since its launch in 2010.”
Looking ahead, all eyes will be on both sides to see how the extension of this codeshare performs, and whether there is additional scope to expand this further going into the future beyond Dublin, Philadelphia, Chicago and the other destinations listed.
