British Airways & Qatar Airways partnership

Qatar Airways and British Airways have concluded the latest phase of their partnership expansion.

The total number of destinations served by the two airlines is now 185 across more than 60 countries, offering global connectivity between more countries than any other airline alliance.

The airlines have added 42 new countries to their shared network, including Italy, the Maldives, Norway, Singapore and Sweden, giving passengers increased access between destinations in Europe and the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Oceania.

Customers now have more choices in terms of prices and schedules, with options for direct flights as well as connections via the airlines’ hubs in London and Doha. They can also take connecting journeys on single tickets through Doha and London.

Additionally, customers will have more freedom to engage with both airlines’ loyalty programmes, earning and spending Avios, their common currency. Customers can link their Qatar Airways Privilege Club and British Airways Executive Club accounts to transfer Avios between the two, and combine balances to claim rewards offered by each programme.

The collaboration also offers access to both airline’s exclusive lounges, and cabins to suit all budgets and needs, including British Airways’ new Club Suite and Qatar Airways’ Qsuite.

Qatar Airways group chief executive Akbar Al Baker, said: “The growing collaboration between Qatar Airways and British Airways shows our customers our common goal to offer an unparalleled network with unique benefits. Travellers can now experience the best in quality and service as they travel across our joint network.  The joint business between our airlines cements both Qatar Airways and British Airways as industry leaders, aiming to provide the utmost flexibility and unrivalled connectivity to our customers.”

Sean Doyle, chairman and CEO for British Airways said: “This is a huge milestone in our long-standing relationship with Qatar Airways, an airline that shares our passion for customer service, choice and flexibility.

“From idyllic holiday hotspots such as the Maldives and Thailand, to business hubs such as Singapore and Hong Kong, we are pleased to open up the world as the travel industry continues to make steps towards its recovery.”

In other news, Qatar Airways has said that it will be increasing passenger capacity on its flights to and from Perth in Australia, starting December 6.
