Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Tuesday, 16 June 2009

Qantas is expanding its European and North American networks via codeshare agreements with oneworld partner airlines Iberia and American Airlines.

 From 17 June, Qantas will codeshare on selected American Airlines operated flights to Atlanta, Minneapolis, Indianapolis, Detroit, Tampa, Cincinnati, New Orleans and Memphis, connecting with existing Qantas codeshare flights from Los Angeles and San Francisco via American Airlines’ Dallas and Chicago hubs.

From 15 July 2009, Qantas will codeshare on Iberia services to Madrid via Frankfurt and London, while the Spanish carrier will place its code on Qantas services from Frankfurt and London to Sydney.

“These new codeshares, with two of our oneworld alliance partners, will provide Qantas customers with more travel options between Europe, North America and Australia,” said Group Executive Qantas Airlines Commercial, Mr Rob Gurney.

“The new relationship with Iberia will complement our existing British Airways codeshare services to Madrid from London, but also offer customers an alternative routing via Frankfurt.”

Qantas currently operates up to 35 services per week between the UK and Germany and Australia, and with oneworld partners, offers codeshare connections to 23 destinations in the UK and Europe.

Iberia will be offering flights to Australia, under its own code on Qantas operated services, for the first time.

“Qantas operates in its own right to Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York and Honolulu,” Mr Gurney added.

“Adding eight destinations in partnership with American Airlines will grow our North American network to 42 cities – 36 in the United States and six in Canada.”

Qantas Frequent Flyer program members will be able to earn points on all of the new codeshare services.
