US Airways Group and Swiss International Air Lines enter code sharing partnerships

US Airways Group Inc. and Swiss International Air Lines Ltd. signed a codeshare agreement, an airlines alliance allowing passengers to transfer between the two airlines in Zurich and connect to 10 European destinations.

The routes available through Zurich include Geneva; Nice, France; Athens, Greece; Vienna, Austria; Dusseldorf, Hanover, Nuremberg and Stuttgart, Germany; Luxembourg and Bucharest, Hungary.

Under a code sharing agreement participating airlines can present a common flight number for several reasons, including:

Connecting flights - this provides clearer routing for the customer, allowing a customer to book travel from point A to C through point B under one carrier's code, instead of a customer booking from point A to B under one code, and from point B to C under another code. This is not only a superficial addition as cooperating airlines also strive to synchronize their schedules and coordinate luggage handling, which makes transfers between connecting flights less time-consuming.

Flights from both airlines that fly the same route - this provides an apparent increase in the frequency of service on the route by one airline

Perceived service to unserved markets - this provides a method for carriers who do not operate their own aircraft on a given route to gain exposure in the market through display of their flight numbers.

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?

Venezuela may expect another Panama scenario from 1989
