Air Berlin has become the latest element of Virgin Australia’s virtual international airline network, with the two airlines announcing a reciprocal codesharing and frequent flyer agreement.

From August 1, assuming regulatory approval, Virgin Australia will codeshare on airberlin’s daily direct Airbus A330-200 services from Abu Dhabi to Berlin and Dusseldorf, while airberlin will codeshare on Virgin Australia’s Abu Dhabi-Sydney and Perth-Phuket flights, plus nine Australian domestic services. Members of the airlines’ frequent flyer scheme will also receive reciprocal benefits.

Airberlin and Virgin Australia share a common key shareholder in Etihad Airways. Airberlin is also, like Qantas, a member of the oneworld airline alliance.

    The interesting point here is that Air Berlin by virtue of the One World Alliane does all of this (except for code shares but with the benefits of code shares) for Qantas as well.

    Any chance of writing an article on airlines in regards to ownership(owned by/who they own), code shares and alliances?
