American Airlines and LAN Ecuador To Codeshare

American Airlines and LAN Ecuador have received the green light from the United States Department of Transportation (DOT), as well as Ecuadorean authorities to begin codeshare cooperation.   The agreement is a great boast to oneworld, but more importantly, it’ll give customers in the United States and Ecuador more choice and connectivity options between the two nations.

Sales of the new codeshare flights start today and travel begins January 9th.

The codeshare agreement allows American to place its code on LAN Ecuador flights and LAN Ecuador to place its code on American Airlines flights.  This new coordination provides American Airlines the ability to sell and provide seamless connections to three new cities in Ecuador, not currently served by American.

Concurrently, LAN Ecuador codes will be added on American Airlines flights providing the seamless travel for LAN customers to new cities across the United States.

From American’s Hub in both Miami and New York JFK, travelers can continue onto places like Atlanta, Boston, Dallas/Ft Worth, Charlotte, Fort Lauderdale, Houston, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Diego, San Francisco, and Seattle.  American’s cornerstone hub at Chicago O’Hare as well as Dallas/Ft Worth and Los Angeles provide access to additional US cities.

Both American Airlines and LAN are part of the oneworld alliance.

  • New York JFK Airport (JFK) and José Joaquín de Olmedo International Airport (GYE) in Guayaquil

“This agreement will improve connectivity between the two countries with access to more destinations by providing flight connections and therefore promoting trade and tourism,” said Maximiliano Naranjo, LAN Ecuador’s General Manager.

Additionally, members of the American Airlines AAdvantage® program and LAN’s frequent flyer program, LANPASS, will be able to earn miles on the codeshare flights, providing customers another benefit of the enhanced relationship. The two airlines are exploring other ways to augment their cooperation to provide passengers more choices and benefits when traveling throughout North and South America.
