Two new airline codeshare agreements were signed in the past week. JetBlue Airways and Singapore Airlines will expand on their current relationship, pending approval from the U.S. Department of Transportation. JetBlue customers would have access to five new cities in Europe and Asia, while Singapore customers would gain access to 16 U.S. cities. Meanwhile, US Airways has launched a codeshare with Airberlin, expanding the relationship already shared between American Airlines and the Berlin-based carrier. Under the new agreement, US Airways will add its code to Airberlin flights from Chicago, Miami and New York JFK to Berlin, and from flights from Fort Myers, Fla.; Los Angeles; Miami, and New York JFK to Dusseldorf, Germany. From there, US Airways passengers can enjoy connections to 16 European destinations. Airberlin customers now can book US Airways flights from Frankfurt and Munich, in Germany, and Zurich, Switzerland. US Airways will add codeshare agreements with other Oneworld Alliance partners in the coming months.
