Aviation titans Virgin Atlantic, Air France and KLM have launched their first-ever codeshare agreement.
The new agreement means new trans-Atlantic travel options from Europe to the Americas, including the Caribbean region.
It means travelers can “build their ideal trip” by combining flights operated by Air France, KLM, Virgin Atlantic and Delta Air Lines, all on one booking reference.
And that of course means new options for European travelers looking to travel to the Caribbean, from the range of French and Dutch islands that Air France and KLM service to Virgin Atlantic’s strong network in the English-speaking Caribbean.
The codeshare comes as Virgin Atlantic, Delta and Air France-KLM will soon form an expanded joint venture later this year that will mean more than 300 daily trans-Atlantic flights and 340 destinations.
That joint venture was first announced in the summer of 2017.
