American Airlines, British Airways, Iberia, Finnair, and Aer Lingus To Add Cooperative Routes
The Atlantic Joint Business venture have announced new flights for the 2022 summer season.
The launching which features flights across a host of different airlines all under the deal, will run from many destinations across Europe and the US.
The Atlantic Joint Business venture was an agreement put together back in 2010. Under the terms of the venture, the airlines involved would set up a network of flights that allowed customers to mix and match routes with ease. Popular routes would be arranged to compliment each other, allowing a relatively seamless experience when connecting flights.
As well as this, passengers can save considerable amounts of money on flights. The venture is the most competitive option for customers in the North Atlantic and, between the airlines involved, have the most transatlantic flights available on the market.
The venture was originally set up by American Airlines, British Airways, and Iberia. Finnair joined the agreement in 2013 before being followed by Level and Aer Lingus in 2017 and 2021 respectively.
