What is code sharing?

Code sharing is a business term which is part of a "cooperative service" agreement between two airlines. It refers to a practice where a flight operated by an airline is jointly marketed as a flight for one or more other airlines. Under a code sharing agreement, the airline that actually operates the flight (the one providing the plane, the crew and the ground handling services) is called the operating carrier. The company or companies that sell tickets for that flight but do not actually operate it are called marketing carriers. For example: Example: 'ZZ 123 operated by YY':

  • Airline ZZ is the marketing airline. Ticket changes or cancellations follow this airline's fare rules.
  • Airline YY is the operating airline. Check-in for your flight at this airline's ticket counter, since they provide the actual plane, flight crew and baggage service.
