An air services agreement (also known as the ATA or ASA) is a bilateral agreement that allows international commercial air services between signatories. The term “code” refers to the identifier used in a flight plan, usually the IATA double-digit designation code and the flight number. Thus, xx224 (airline flight number 224 XX) could also be sold by YY568 and by ZZ as ZZ9876. In this case, YY and ZZ are referred to as “airline marketing” (sometimes abbreviated MKT CXR for “Marketing Carrier”). Under a codeshare agreement, the airline that manages the flight (the airline that holds the operating licenses, slots and flight planning/management and is responsible for ground-handling services) is often referred to as the CXR ope operator, although the term “carrier administration” of IATA SSIM is more specific. The reason is that a third party may be involved, usually in the event that the airline initially wishing to fly is forced to hire a subcontractor to operate the flight on its behalf (usually a wet ground lease, i.e. an aircraft is crewed and all flight facilities, usually due to capacity constraints, technical problems, etc.). In this case, the airline carrying the passenger should be designated as an operating airline, as it is the airline that carries passengers/goods. Lufthansa plans to resume service to tourist destinations in Europe. The German airline has been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic and is in talks with the government about a possible rescue plan.

Henson with US Airways` predecessor, Allegheny Airlines, the country`s first codeshare relationship The term “codeshare” or “codeshare” was coined by Qantas and American Airlines in 1989 and in 1990, the two companies made available their first codeshare flights between a series of Australian cities and U.S. national cities. Since then, the sharing of parts of codes has spread in the aviation sector, particularly as part of the formation of major airline alliances. These alliances have extensive code-sharing and network loyalty programs. Under a codeshare agreement, participating airlines can provide a common flight number for several reasons, including: ASAs cover the basic framework under which airlines obtain economic bilateral flight rights for two countries. Frequency, designated airlines of the two signatory states, points of origin and intermediate points, traffic rights, type of aircraft and tax issues are generally covered by soft. Lufthansa had previously said it could not approve the bailout because it feared the conditions imposed by the EU would be too harsh.
