Travel News Asia 24 April 2004

Qatar Airways and Thailand's national airline Thai Airways International have today signed a codeshare agreement that will link Qatar Airways route network with Thai Airways' network of 35 countries.

Qatar Airways' Chief Executive Officer Mr Akbar Al Baker and Thai Airways' Executive Vice President Commercial Mr Suthep Suebsantiwongse signed the agreement that will initially allow Qatar Airways to carry Thai passengers on the Bangkok-Doha/Doha-Bangkok sectors.

"Today's new codeshare agreement marks the start of an important and co-operative relationship between Qatar Airways and Thai Airways," said Mr Al Baker.

"This agreement effectively links the Qatar Airways growing route network of 49 destinations to Thai Airways' network of 72 destinations in four continents.

"The codeshare agreement allows both airlines to carry each others passengers between Doha and Bangkok. 

"As Thai Airways has yet to commence service to Doha, Qatar Airways will initially be carrying Thai Airways passengers between the two cities and onto the Qatar Airways network.

"This agreement with Thai Airways continues our strategy to build a network of strategic alliances with the world's other leading airlines," said Mr Al Baker.
