Agreement With SN Brussels Sanctioned By The EU

British Airways and SN Brussels Airlines have received approval from the European Commission to continue their commercial relationship.

The agreement between the two carriers, signed in July 2002, enables the airlines to codeshare on selected flights and offer reciprocal frequent flyer benefits for customers.

To date, the airlines now codeshare on six routes in Europe. SN Brussels puts its code on British Airways operated services between London Heathrow, London Gatwick, Southampton and Brussels. At the same time, British Airways applies its code to SN Brussels operated services between Birmingham, Newcastle, Bristol and Brussels.

British Airways’ head of alliances and franchises, Michael Jackson, said: “We’re delighted that we have been given the green light to continue our commercial arrangement with SN Brussels. It’s great news for customers and great news for the airlines. The agreement has already improved network and schedule choice for our customers, a trend that is set to continue as we look at more ways to work together.”
