Korean Air Expands Codeshare With Uzbekistan Airways

Korean Air (KE) is expanding its codeshare ties with Uzbekistan Airways (HY).

Starting Monday July 13, the two airlines expand their codeshare arrangement to a mutual free-sale agreement. This means that either airline will be able to book and sell seats on the partner airline’s passenger flight without restriction, as long as the inventory is open. Until now, the relationship was single-sided, in which only Uzbekistan Airways placed its code on Korean Air flights.

With the new agreement, Korean Air customers will be able to choose from a wider schedule than before when traveling to Central Asia. Korean Air operates three roundtrip flights a week between Seoul (Incheon International Airport) and Tashkent, and Uzbekistan Airways has two flights a week on the same route. The expanded arrangement allows Korean Air customers to fly Korean Air and accrue Skypass miles on all five flights.
