BA to take equity stake in Polish airline
Friday 16 January 1998
The alliance with LOT will involve a code-sharing agreement on flights on the Manchester-Warsaw and Gatwick-Krakow routes, reciprocal participation in frequent-flyers programmes and co-operation between the Polish airline and BA's German subsidiary Deutsche BA. The deal means that BA now has strategic alliances with three European airlines - the other two are Iberia and Finnair. But Mr Garussa said it was keen to build further partnerships. There are at least twelve European carriers yet to sign up to one of the global alliances such as Star which are coming to dominate the aviation market. They include Aer Lingus, Portugalia, Maersk in Denmark, Meridiana of Italy, Olympic of Greece, El Al and the Russian airline Aeroflot.
