French term or phrase:destinations réciproques
This is from a text about business dealings between various airlines.
Que devient XXX dans la joint-venture globale entre YY, ZZ et UU annoncée en juillet 2017?
Outre la JV FASDF, le partage de code entre PP et DDDD est limité aux *destinations réciproques* pour le transport intérieur et moyen-courrier en continuation de leurs hubs respectifs (Milan, Rome, Paris, Amsterdam), et avec HOP! sur certaines liaisons France-Italie
without more details about the companies and their arrangements, what can be concluded is limited, still ...
"destinations réciproques" doesn't show in search as a term with some specific meaning in aviation, so the usual meaning of "réciproque" should be the starting point, and the fact that "les destinations réciproques" are a limiting factor - the way this sentence is constructed implies that NOT ALL destination that have potential for code sharing are included, but only those that are "réciproques".
Following the usual meaning of "réciproque", "les destinations réciproques" would be going from A to B (B as a destination when you are in A) and going from B to A (A as a destination when you are in B),
IOW here "les destinations réciproques" would be the flights between these companies hubs. i.e the hub B as a destination starting from the hub A, and the hub A as a destination starting from the hub B.
le partage de code entre PP et DDDD est limité aux *destinations réciproques* = the code sharing between PP and DDDD is limited to flights between their airport hubs.
Another potential difficulty is that the ST might be a translation into French?

Explanation: This is a joint venture, or code share, between airlines. If two airlines serve the same destination, they combine their passengers and provide the service under a single flag.
Royal Jordanian and Qatar Airways offer passengers even more shared destinations
