Qatar Airways has announced an expanded code-share agreement with British Airways, which will now provide travellers with a wider choice of flights and an enhanced network.

With the launch of British Airways’ non-stop service between London and Doha, travellers will benefit from seven daily flights to Heathrow, improving connectivity on to each airline’s network. The expanded code-share network will now also include all of British Airways’ flights within the UK, covering Aberdeen, Belfast, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, Leeds, Bradford, Manchester and Newcastle, the Doha-based carrier has said in a press statement.
Additionally, Qatar Airways will code-share on a number of routes from London Heathrow to Europe, including all services to Dublin in Ireland, Hamburg and Stuttgart in Germany, Luxembourg, Basel in Switzerland, Bilbao, Malaga, Ibiza and Palma in Spain, Lisbon and Faro in Portugal and Billund in Denmark.
Qatar Airways Group chief executive Akbar al-Baker said: “Following the recent news of our joint business agreement with British Airways, we are pleased to further strengthen our relationship with the announcement of these additional code-share flights across Europe, which will enhance our commercial co-operation and strengthen our competitive offering in the market.”
This code-share follows the recent announcement that Qatar Airways and British Airways will commence a joint business agreement from October 30, the same date as the first direct scheduled daily British Airways flight between London Heathrow and Doha. As part of the agreement, all non-stop flights between the UK and Doha will operate under the code-share agreement, allowing both oneworld carriers to provide passengers with better links between the UK, Asia, Middle East and Africa.
Now in its 19th year of operations, Qatar Airways has a fleet of 190 aircraft, flying to more than 150 key business and leisure destinations across six continents.
Passengers connecting through Qatar Airways’ hub, Hamad International Airport in Doha, can enjoy a comfortable and efficient transit. The airport has more than 40,000sqm of retail space and restaurants, including over 70 retail and 30 food & beverage outlets as well as a 25m swimming pool, gym, hotel and spa.
