El Al and LOT Polish Airlines entered into a codeshare agreement on Monday, which will allow passengers to buy a ticket through El Al or LOT and combine flights of the two airlines, Globes reported.

The companies signed a memorandum of understanding which is designed to apply to at least one route operated by the two airlines.

LOT CEO and President of Management Board Rafal Milczarski noted that “El Al and LOT share many common features, including size of air fleet and activity,” and said that codesharing is “a natural measure that will benefit the passengers.”

El Al VP Commercial and Industry Affairs Michael Strassburger said that the agreement comes amid an increase in passenger traffic between Poland and Israel, and will enable El Al to offer its customers a wider range of options.

El Al has existing codeshare agreements with Air Mexico, Swiss Airlines, Iberia Airlines, Thai Airways, Qantas Airways, Air China, JetBlue Airways and others.
