airberlin and Alitalia sign codeshare agreement

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

airberlin, Germany’s second largest airline and Alitalia, Italy’s leading carrier, have signed a codeshare agreement to offer more choice and greater convenience to their guests.

All of airberlin’s and Alitalia’s 412 weekly nonstop flights between Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy will be codeshare flights effective this winter season.

As of October 26th, airberlin’s three daily flights from Dusseldorf and double daily flights from Berlin-Tegel will operate into Milan-Linate instead of Malpensa. Furthermore, the three daily flights from Vienna operated by NIKI, the Austrian airline which is part of the airberlin group, will be directed to Linate as well.


The partners also agreed on selective codeshares beyond their home hubs. For instance Alitalia will place its “AZ” code on some of airberlin’s domestic flights such as from Munich to Cologne, Dusseldorf, Hamburg and Berlin. At the same time airberlin will place its “AB” code on selected domestic and international Alitalia flights via Rome and Milan-Linate to, for example, Naples, Brindisi, Reggio Calabria, Alghero, Athens or Malta as well as on some of Alitalia’s long haul flights to South America such as Sao Paolo and Rio de Janeiro. All codeshare flights will be published in the reservation systems by 20th of October 2014 for flights commencing October 26th, 2014. Codesharing on Alitalia’s long-haul and some international connections will commence after regulatory approval.

Besides the new codeshare services and more convenient flight connections, airberlin and Alitalia have signed a frequent flyer agreement which allows their guests to earn and redeem bonus miles on the entire route network of both airlines on a reciprocal basis for flights starting on or after the 1st of November 2014.
