Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Thursday, 11 June 2009

Qatar Airways has implemented a codeshare agreement with the American carrier US Airways offering passengers even greater access to the US market via Europe.

Following approval from the US Department of Transportation, both carriers can place their respective flight codes on selected services.

Under the agreement, Qatar Airways’ QR flight code is placed on selected European flights operated by US Airways to its American hubs of Charlotte and Philadelphia.

As part of the agreement, Qatar Airways applies its QR flight code for the first phase of the codeshare on:

- Flights operated by US Airways between London Gatwick, Manchester, Milan, Madrid, Athens, Stockholm and both Philadelphia and Charlotte.

In addition, for the first phase of the codeshare, US Airways’ US flight code is applied on services operated by Qatar Airways from London Gatwick, Manchester, Milan, Madrid, Stockholm and Athens to Doha.

Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker said the agreement with US Airways demonstrated the airline’s commitment to the US market, which it entered in 2007.

“Two years ago, Qatar Airways embarked on an historic journey to North America with our first flights to the United States,” he said.

“We have gradually increased capacity to the US market, operating daily to three gateway cities of New York, Washington and, recently, new daily flights to Houston.

“This agreement with US Airways gives Qatar Airways’ passengers flying on our services to the key European gateway cities of London Gatwick, Manchester, Milan, Madrid, Athens and Stockholm with convenient onward connections on US Airways to Philadelphia and Charlotte with our flight code.”

Similarly, US Airways’ passengers can fly between the US and the six European cities with onward connections flying Qatar Airways to Doha with the US flight code.
