Emirates and Avianca have announced a new codeshare partnership to extend access to Latin America via European gateways.

The deal will allow Emirates customers flying via Madrid, Barcelona or London Heathrow to fly direct to three points in Colombia with ‘seamless connectivity’. Codeshare flights will start from 4 June on routes from Madrid to Bogotá, Medellin and Cali, from Barcelona to Bogotá and from London Heathrow to Bogotá.   

Avianca, meanwhile, will place its code on routes operated by Emirates between Barcelona, Madrid or London Heathrow and Dubai.

Additional benefits include a single ticket and a single baggage policy checked through to travellers’ final destination.

Emirates deputy president and chief commercial officer, Adnan Kazim, said: “The codeshare agreement will enable us to expand our reach and allow our customers to use our services and fly to additional popular points in Colombia… We look forward to developing the relationship further, and introducing more added-value benefits in the future that will be felt by customers of both airlines.”

The Dubai-based carrier currently has agreements in place with 161 interline, codeshare and intermodal partners.
