Aerolíneas Argentinas and Air Europa have announced an extension to the existing commercial agreement between the two companies.
The recent FITUR exhibition marked the conclusion of this new step, extending the joint collaboration that already existed between Ezeiza and Madrid to include more routes and destinations.
Options added to the existing agreement are detailed below:
- Barcelona-Buenos Aires-Barcelona operated by Aerolíneas Argentinas, will be marketed by Air Europa as a codeshare, with five frequencies a week.
- Córdoba-Asunción-Córdoba and Córdoba-Madrid-Córdoba, will also be marketed by Air Europa as a codeshare flight, with five frequencies a week.
The new agreement opens up new routes in Europe for Aerolíneas Argentinas - as codeshare flights - operated by Air Europa, via Madrid to Lisbon, London - Gatwick, Bilbao, Vigo and La Coruña.
In addition via Barcelona, Aerolíneas will codeshare to Palma de Mallorca.
For Air Europa, the agreement incorporates the possibility to offer codeshare flights operated by Aerolíneas Argentinas and Austral, via Córdoba to Rosario, Salta, Bariloche, El Calafate and Ushuaia and via Ezeiza to Montevideo and Santiago de Chile.
“We are delighted to extend our collaboration with Air Europa and realise our potential to offer more options to our passengers,” said Diego García, commercial director of Aerolíneas Argentinas.
Passengers of Aerolíneas Argentinas and Air Europa will benefit from much better connections to the codeshare destinations.
Also, itineraries can now be issued on the same ticket with the same airline code.
Boarding passes and checked baggage will cover the total journey, through to final destination from originating airport.
Importantly, passengers can now accumulate miles in the frequent flyer programmes of both Aerolíneas Plus or Air Europa SUMA on all codeshare flights.
For its part, Imanol Pérez Iñurritegui, director of partnerships for Air Europa said: “This new extension allows us to enhance our arrival in Argentina and bring closer more appealing destinations to European passengers.”
