Both airlines are now part of the oneworld alliance
Finnair and airberlin are building on their current codeshare cooperation and expanding in markets in Scandinavia and the Middle East. The Finnair code is being added to airberlin flights starting from Oslo, Gothenburg, Stockholm and Copenhagen to Berlin, and from Copenhagen to Düsseldorf. Finnair is also adding its code to airberlin-operated daily flights from Düsseldorf and Berlin to Abu Dhabi.
Finnair’s own flights from Helsinki to Tallinn, Turku, Tampere and Oulu now also have the airberlin code, for the first time offering airberlin passengers flights to Estonia and domestic flights in Finland in combination with an airberlin or a Finnair flight from Germany. The new codeshares are available from 28 October 2012 and are bookable now.
Finnair and airberlin have been sharing code on flights between Finland and Germany and to points onward in Italy and Austria since 2010. On 20 March 2012, airberlin joined the oneworld alliance, of which Finnair is also a member.
