Finland’s national flag carrier Finnair recently announced its willingness to join the transatlantic joint business that has been set up jointly by the American Airlines, British Airways and Iberia.
The three airlines, all of which are members of leading global airline alliance oneworld, jointly established the transatlantic business in October 2010. The announcement by Finnair has been welcomed by the three international carriers and has given them reasons to celebrate, which they have termed it as a key milestone.
Finnair is likely to join the transatlantic joint business after approval later this year. This will also give opportunity to the customers in North America and Europe to book air tickets at competitive prices as well as increased flight options and services. This will also offer them convenient and seamless connections to flights across the Atlantic.
As part of the joint transatlantic business partnership, Finnair would be able to place its flight code to select American Airlines, Iberia and British Airways flights between North America and Europe. Similarly, the three carriers would also be able to put their respective flight codes on daily Finnair flights between New York and Helsinki.
