categories : aviation

UAE carrier Emirates and Australia’s Qantas have agreed to extend their codeshare agreement for another five years.

The agreement was signed by Emirates President Tim Clark and Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce at the International Air Transport Association (IATA) general meeting in the United States, a statement confirmed on Monday.

The two airlines launched their partnership in 2013, but codeshare flights were suspended when international air traffic plummeted due to the coronavirus pandemic last year.

With the extended partnership, passengers and frequent flyers of both airlines will have access to the joint network and earn reward seats to travel across Australia, New Zealand, Europe and the United Kingdom.

“Despite the challenges of the past 18 months, today’s announcement reinforces that Emirates is here for the long haul,” said Clark.

“As borders re-open, we look forward to restoring our Australian flight schedules including our popular A380 services,” he added.
