Finnair and Air Berlin have signed a bilateral cooperation agreement which will see the two airlines begin codeshare cooperation in November 2010.

The airlines plan to cooperate commercially in traffic between Germany and Finland, and later in Finnair's Asian traffic. The companies also plan to cooperate in terms of their frequent-flyer programmes.

"For Finnair, cooperation with Air Berlin will provide a stronger foothold in Central Europe, which will support Finnair's Asian strategy significantly," said Finnair's President & CEO Mika Vehvilinen. "Air Berlin's network covers the area of Europe with the highest purchasing power. Cooperation will lead to numerous new, fast connections from German-speaking Central Europe via Helsinki to Asia. We will provide for business passengers a competitive alternative, which will boost our corporate sales in an important market"

For Finnair's Finnish customers, closer cooperation with Air Berlin will also open up new destinations in both German-speaking Europe and the Mediterranean area.

Air Berlin, Germany's second largest airline, is expected to join the oneworld alliance at the beginning of 2012.
