What is a Code Share Agreement?
It is an alliance between 2 or more airlines, established with the aim of offering Passengers the ability to access new destinations and benefits, by expanding the route network offered by airlines via flights operated by partner airlines.
Its primary purpose is to share the sale of seats on specific flights. One airline is the operator of the route (aircraft, crews, permits) and the other(s) market the route by placing their code on the applicable flights/routes as per the agreement.
Any change in the itinerary and/or cancellation on the day of the operation (0-24 hours before scheduled flight departure) is handled by the operating airline at the airport. Changes in the itinerary and/or cancellations before the flight (2 or more days before scheduled flight departure), are handled by each marketing airline and they are responsible for promptly notifying the affected passengers.
The baggage policy that applies on codeshare flights is the policy of the airline operating the most significant segment (longest leg). You must check which airline this is when making your purchase.
Please note: The majority of agreements work this way, but there are exceptions depending on the type of agreement.
