Iberia, Binter Canarias agree on codeshare for African destinations
Feb 16, 2017: Iberia and the Canary Islands-based Binter Canarias have reached a codeshare agreement to facilitate travel between Madrid and Agadir, El Aioun, Sal Island and Nouakchott.
Flights to those African destinations will be sold under Iberia’s flight code, while Binter’s code will also be added on Iberia Group flights between Madrid and Gran Canaria that connect to its flights to/from those African destinations.
The agreement will allow both airlines to market flights from Madrid to the four African cities via Madrid, which will make travel easier for customers, as they will be able to check luggage through to the final destination and receive Avios for the entire distance covered by the two carriers.
The agreement brings the number of African destinations reached by Iberia Group airlines to 17, including Algiers and Oran (Algeria); Tangier, Casablanca, and Marrakech (Morocco); Dakar (Senegal), Malabo (Equatorial Guinea); and Johannesburg (South Africa), operated by Iberia. Under code share agreement with other airlines, Iberia passengers can also reach Cairo (Egypt), Entebbe (Uganda), Nairobi (Kenya), Lusaka (Zambia), Mauritius, and now Agadir, El Aioun, Sal, and Nouakchott.
