Air New Zealand says it has signed a code sharing agreement with Virgin Atlantic that will allow its passengers to book on many Virgin Atlantic services.

"This new code share agreement provides yet further connectivity options for our customers as well as providing important connectivity for Virgin Atlantic customers to New Zealand and also the Cook Islands," said Air NZ chief executive Rob Fyfe.

Air NZ passengers will be able to book on Virgin Atlantic between London's Heathrow airport and San Francisco and between Hong Kong and Sydney for connecting journeys using Air NZ's NZ flight code.

Passengers will be able to book with Virgin Atlantic to travel on connecting journeys on the Air NZ routes using Virgin's VS flight code.

The two carriers expect the code share to come into force on February 28 after obtaining the relevant government approvals.

Last year Air NZ and Virgin Blue won approval from Transport Minister Steven Joyce to cooperate on routes across the Tasman.
