American Airlines and Lan Ecuador aim to forge a codesharing agreement covering flights to the US and within Ecuador.

American told US regulators it desires to put the Lan Ecuador code on its US flights and points in Ecuador while Lan Ecuador would display American's code on its flights in Ecuador and to the US.

Schedules in the Innovata database show that American serves Miami to Quito and Guayaquil nonstop while Lan Ecuador serves the two Ecuadorian cities nonstop from Miami and New York JFK.

Lan Ecuador offers numerous flights between Guayaquil and Quito and operates flights to the Galapagos under a codeshare with Icaro, which filed a liquidation request earlier this year.
