Iberia and British Airways, merger partners under the umbrella of International Airlines Group (IAG), have expanded their codeshare arrangements on flights to Africa and South America.

Customers of the Spanish flag carrier can now book flights from Madrid or Barcelona to the Ugandan capital Entebbe, connecting with a BA-operated service via London Heathrow airport.

BA passengers booking outbound services from Heathrow can now also connect via Madrid for onward flights to Bogota, Colombia.

Both carriers have gradually added codeshare agreements since merging in January 2011. Iberia has to date added its code on BA flights to Dar Es Salaam, Accra, Lusaka, Cape Town, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait, Doha, Bahrain, Muscat, Jeddah, Riyadh, Bangalore, Mumbai, New Delhi and Sydney.

BA, meanwhile, has focused on Iberia's strong South American network, adding its code on services to San José de Costa Rica, Panama City, Guatemala City, San Salvador, Santiago de Chile, Caracas, Montevideo and Santo Domingo.
