FORT WORTH, Texas - American Airlines announced that it will extend its route network to five additional points in Poland, India, and the Middle East through its codeshare agreement with SWISS.
Beginning July 31, the company will place its AA code on SWISS flights from Zurich to Krakow and Warsaw, Poland, and to Muscat, Oman. On Aug. 7, the company will put its code on SWISS flights from Zurich to Mumbai and Delhi in India.
“American`s codeshare with SWISS opens for our customers a world of travel possibilities to destinations beyond the points in our network that we serve directly,” said Mike Gunn, American`s executive vice president of Marketing and Planning. “Together, we operate nine daily flights between the U.S. and Zurich, making connections to Europe, India, and the Middle East very convenient for our passengers.”
American serves Zurich from Dallas/Fort Worth and New York. From the United States, SWISS serves Zurich from Los Angeles, Miami, Washington D.C., Chicago, Newark, New York, and Boston.
Since American and SWISS began their codeshare relationship in May, they have built an extensive reciprocal network between more than 40 codeshare cities in the United States, Europe, and now India and the Middle East. The two airlines will continue to explore opportunities to codeshare between destinations in Europe, Africa and the Middle East, and through American`s extensive network in North America, the Caribbean and Latin America.
SWISS is the newly branded national airline of Switzerland and is one of Europe`s largest carriers.
American Airlines, the world’s largest carrier, together with its regional affiliates American Eagle and the AmericanConnection carriers, serves more than 250 cities in more than 40 countries and territories with more than 4,400 daily flights.
