Code-Sharing With Iberia Expands

British Airways and its alliance partner Iberia are expanding their code-sharing agreement to cover four destinations in Spain served by Iberia subsidiary Air Nostrum.

From tomorrow, the BA code will be added to Air Nostrum/Iberia flights between their Madrid hub and the regional cities of Almeria, Murcia, Pamplona and Zaragoza.

With connections at Madrid timed to minimise waiting time, and transfers made as smooth as possible, this latest step in the expanding co-operation between the two oneworld partners will make travel between more of the Spanish regions and the UK easier than ever.

British Airways serves Madrid directly eight times daily from London (five from Heathrow and three from Gatwick), twice daily (most days) from Manchester Birmingham and daily from Birmingham.

These new code-share routes will offer BA coded flights thrice daily (most days) on to Pamplona and Zaragoza, twice daily (most days) to Almeria and six days a week to Murcia.


Code-sharing between the two carriers was launched in June 1999 on an initial 14 routes. These four new destinations take the total number of code-share routes to 33 routes.
