American has also boosted its international footprint, enabling travelers to reach far into Japan, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Mexico by adding new partners via the growing oneworld® Alliance – of which American is a founding member – all the while further strengthening its position as the leading airline serving Latin America. In addition, American has expanded codesharing agreements with airlines such as Etihad, Hainan Airlines, Japan Airlines, Cathay Airlines, Qantas, Alaska Airlines, Westjet, Jet Blue, and others.
American also gained antitrust immunity and has formed joint businesses with British Airways and Iberia across the North Atlantic and with Japan Airlines across the Pacific. American and Qantas will launch their joint business in January that will allow both airlines to coordinate commercial activities more closely. For example, Qantas will increase its Dallas/Fort Worth - Sydney service to daily in the Summer '12. American codeshares on that route and provides connections to more than 50 U.S. destinations.
American's international network and those of its partners give travelers a broad offering of more than 900 destinations for AAdvantage® Program frequent flyer members to earn and redeem miles for travel. American's relationships with other airlines are designed to strengthen American's own route network and provide more travel choices for its customers.
