American Airlines has signed an agreement with Air Berlin outlining a comprehensive codeshare and frequent flyer relationship that will allow customers of each airline to book and travel on the other's network and earn frequent flyer miles as well.

 American, a founding member of the oneworld alliance which Air Berlin is to join, currently serves Germany with service to Frankfurt from its Dallas/Fort Worth and Chicago gateways. With hubs in Berlin and Dusseldorf, Air Berlin offers service to more than 160 cities in Europe, Russia and the Middle East as well as to six cities in North America New York, Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Fort Myers, Fla., and Vancouver.

From its Miami hub, American offers  service to 30 cities in Mexico, Central and South America, serves 23 island destinations in the Caribbean, and offers service to six destinations in the Bahamas. From its Los Angeles hub American serves 31 cities, including four Hawaiian destinations.

Additionally, the agreement allows customers traveling on codeshare flights to earn mileage credits in American's AAdvantage or Air Berlin's topbonus frequent flyer programs. American and Air Berlin are also exploring a more comprehensive agreement that would include mileage redemption in addition to accrual across each carrier's networks.

Joachim Hunold, CEO of Air Berlin said, "We at Air Berlin are very pleased about establishing our bilateral cooperation with American Airlines starting in the winter season of 2010/2011.
