Block Space Agreements
“Last year`s peak season was the first time we had to sign a block agreement for flights from London Heathrow,” Bosman said. “We signed them for other gateways, of course, but it was new for Heathrow, as we recognized, if we didn`t, we would fight.

Most major airlines today have codeshare partnerships with other airlines, and code sharing is an essential feature of major airline alliances. In general, code-sharing agreements are also part of trade agreements between airlines in the same alliances.
