What are Joint Routes?

Joint routes are shipping routes that are served by two or more carriers who share the costs and revenues of operating the route. Joint routes are typically established to provide better service coverage and more efficient use of resources. For example, two airlines may jointly operate a flight between two cities, sharing the costs of aircraft, fuel, and crew. Joint routes may also allow carriers to expand their service network without having to invest in new equipment or infrastructure.
