New cooperation agreement includes code-sharing
airBaltic has finalised a cooperation agreement with Air France, including code-sharing. The Latvian carrier says its passengers will be able to make more efficient use of Air France’s wide variety of over 150 worldwide connections via the Paris hub. Likewise, Air France passengers around the world will have better access to Riga and more than 60 destinations served by airBaltic.
“As we reinforce links between Riga and other hubs, our customers benefit immediately from better connectivity with regions where direct flights are unavailable,” Martin Gauss, airBaltic’s CEO, explained. “A strong family of partner airlines with whom we code-share ensures smooth and seamless travel for airBaltic customers via these points. Current code-share partners include a number of the world’s major airlines. We are very pleased to add Air France to this growing family, enabling us to offer excellent connections via the Paris hub to destinations worldwide.”
