KLM Royal Dutch Airlines (NYSE:KLM - News) said on Monday it had signed a code sharing and loyalty program agreement with Spanish carrier Air Europa.

KLM said its passengers would have access to 11 new destinations in Spain, one of Europe's most popular holiday destinations, linked to its scheduled flights to and from Madrid and Barcelona.

The agreement will take effect from June 25 for flight operations from July 1, KLM said in a statement.

from the KLM press release (http://corporate.klm.com):
"From July 1, 2002, KLM passengers will have access to 11 new destinations in Spain, which are linked to KLM’s scheduled flights to and from Madrid and Barcelona through connecting Air Europa flights to and from these destinations. The new KLM codeshare destinations in Spain are: Bilbao, Ibiza, Lanzarote, Las Palmas, Malaga, Menorca, Palma de Mallorca, Santiago de Compostela, Seville and Tenerife (Norte Los Rodeos and Sur Reina Sofia). The new codesharing flights will be sold via the CRS systems from June 25, for flight operations from July 1 2002.

As per August 1, 2002, members of KLM’s frequent flyer programme Flying Dutchman can earn and spend their points on these and many other flights of the Air Europa network, while members of Air Europa’s frequent flyer programme Fidelitas can earn and spend their points on the entire KLM network (except the flights operated to Havana, Santo Domingo and Caracas)."

This is not the entire Air Europa network by far, seems KLM is trying to limit the damage to its Transavia business that might arise from this deal.



I wish I were flying

Jwenting, it looks as if KLM doesn't mind to damage HV's business as they codeshare with UX on many of HV's scheduled destinations (AGP, PMI, LPA, SVQ and TFS) Leaves only ALC and this isn't an UX destination from MAD and BCN. Moreover, UX doesn't have a very large domestic network


Wasn't KLM negociating with UX for some time about a possible KLM - UX link up after the IB-UX collapsed?

Looks also that UX wants to prevent loyal UX passengers for getting a taste of KLM's CCS service.

Northwest /Continental codeshares US-Spain.

Think about a BCN - Newark and/or MAD- DTW 2 times daily ..

Could that be the big fish behind this deal for Air Europa ?
