US Airways is cozying up to its Oneworld partner Finnair this month, with codeshares set to appear on a number of Finnish flights.
The arrangements see US Airways placing its ‘US’ flight code on Finnair-operated flights between its Helsinki hub and various destinations across Europe and the United States, a Finnair spokesperson confirmed to Australian Business Traveller.
On the list is Finnair’s daily New York (JFK) flight, which picks up a US Airways code from July 24 2014.
While US Airways doesn’t fly to Finland, its sister American Airlines runs seasonal, direct flights from Chicago O’Hare to Helsinki, on which Finnair codeshares.
Once in Helsinki, US Airways passengers can fly onwards to Brussels, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Gothenburg, London, Munich, Oslo, Oulu, Paris (Charles de Gaulle), Stockholm, Toronto and Zurich.
By booking a codeshare flight, members of US Airways' Dividend Miles program can earn Preferred-qualifying miles and segments, regardless of the airline operating the flight.
Dividend Miles balances can then be put to good use for Qantas, British Airways and Cathay Pacific flights, as Australian Business Traveller has previously covered.
