Airlines Have An Interline Agreement

Here at Simple Flying, we often write new agreements between airlines. From codeshares to joint ventures to interline agreements. There is a lot of collaboration between the carriers. But what are interline agreements and how are they different from other types of partnerships? If two airlines enter into an interline agreement, this is the most fundamental form of partnership you will find. Essentially, it allows passengers to book itineraries with multiple airlines with less effort than booking them individually. According to IATA rules, it is also quite possible that interline airlines on one route and another, not at all or on one route, at ”reasonable” rates and on another, interline only at the full fare. In this case, we cannot ensure that the connecting time is long enough to transfer your luggage to your next flight. This leads to poorly connected pockets, which is not a good thing for anyone. Does Aer Lingus have an interline agreement with United to transport luggage to the final destination? My ticket is also from Stockholm to Brisbane – 1 ticket but qatar and qantas. And with an onother ticket, I will have a second flight from Brisbane to Christchurch with Qantas (both oneworld). I hope they (Qatar) will send my bags to Christchurch. Otherwise, in Australia, I have to ”go and enter”.

Problem with the visa, a lot of money for these 2 very short stops. And when it comes to checking if a route can be booked on a third-party site (with protected connections), then the answer is yes, unless you use Kiwi.com (the only book that gathers unprotected connections). You shouldn`t just buy from a third party online due to other levels of inequality, but, with the exception of Kiwi, third parties use a GDS for flight search and the GDS only returns flight plans with interlined protected links…
