American and Korean Air sign codeshare

5 Feb 2015 by GrahamSmith
American Airlines has signed a codeshare agreement with Korean Air for the latter to place its code on AA flights between Dallas/Fort Worth and Seoul Incheon. The deal, which is subject to regulatory approval, will allow Korean Air Skypass loyalty members to earn miles on American-operated flights between the two airports. If approved, the carriers plan to sell codeshare flights for travel beginning in April. Kurt Stache, American's SVP of alliances and partnerships, said: "This is the next step in strengthening our position in Asia, allowing us to win new customers in the region. We look forward to a strong relationship with Korean Air." Yong Soon Park, Korean Air's SVP of international affairs and alliance, added: "We are delighted with this partnership which will provide our customers with better access between Korea and the US and to destinations throughout North, Central and South America." American began serving Seoul in May 2013 and operates a B777-200 aircraft on the Dallas/Fort Worth to Seoul route. Last month, American announced it will launch the first non-stop flight between Dallas/Fort Worth and Beijing Capital International airport on May 7 (see news, January 23)., Graham Smith
