Korean Air to expand code-sharing with Delta Air

All News 20:05 September 07, 2016

SEOUL, Sept. 7 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's top flag carrier Korean Air Lines Co. said Wednesday that it will expand its code-sharing agreement with Delta Air Lines Inc. as part of efforts to boost its revenue and improve customer convenience.

In a deal with the major air carrier based in the U.S., Korean Air will increase the number of its code-sharing routes from the current 32 to 159 starting in November, according to the company.

Code-sharing allows an air carrier to sell its tickets on another's flight. It is aimed mostly at boosting revenue by increasing passenger seats and flight destinations without requiring a carrier to use its own airplanes.

Korean Air currently operates a total of 260 routes subject to code-sharing deals with 35 air carriers.
