Travellers will soon be able to book selected Russian domestic routes operated by S7 Airlines via Moscow on the BA website.
S7 joined Oneworld in November last year (see online news November 15, 2010), and BA will now place its code on the Russian carrier’s flights from Moscow to Krasnodar, Rostov-on-Don, Samara, Ekaterinburg, Kazan, Chelyabinsk, Kaliningrad, Krasnoyarsk and Ufa.
The codeshare agreement takes effect on February 1, for flights from February 8, and will mean BA customers will be able to book their whole journey via Moscow at ba.com. At the same time S7 will place its code on BA flights between Moscow and London.
