Air France, Saudi Airlines sign codeshare pact
Saudi Airlines and Air France on Monday signed a code-sharing agreement which will boost cooperation between the two state carriers on routes between the two countries.
"This agreement, which will become effective on 10 January, will allow the two airlines to offer their customers daily code-shared flights on services between Paris, Jeddah and Riyadh," the companies said in a statement.
The cooperation will cover lounges and frequent flyer programmes as well as the flights themselves.
The pact will cover seven return flights a week between Jeddah and Paris-CDG and six return flights per week between Riyadh and Paris-CDG, all on Airbus A320/330 aircraft, the carriers said.
