American Airlines has launched a new codeshare agreement with St. Croix-based Seaborne Airlines, offering travelers access to six destinations in the Caribbean out of San Juan, Puerto Rico. The codeshare agreement allows American to place its code on Seaborne's flights between San Juan (SJU) and Dominica (DOM), Fort-de-France, Martinique (FDF), Pointe-a-Pitre, Guadeloupe (PTP), Tortola, British Virgin Islands (EIS), Vieques, Puerto Rico (VQS) and Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands (VIJ). Customers can book travel on the codeshare flights now for travel starting June 27, 2013.
"American is committed to providing our customers with easy and convenient access to destinations around the globe," said Kurt Stache, American's Vice President – Strategic Alliances. "This new codeshare relationship with Seaborne affirms that commitment by expanding our global network to include more travel options to the Caribbean."
"This agreement is indicative of the quality of our people and our airline," said Gary Foss, President of Seaborne. "We couldn't be more delighted to be launching a codeshare agreement with American Airlines and look forward to serving its needs in the region for years to come."
American Airlines AAdvantage program members will be eligible to earn miles on the codeshare flights operated by Seaborne. American's customers will be able to redeem miles on Seaborne flights later this year.
