QANTAS and Air France have renewed their codeshare agreement, allowing more options for travel between Europe and Australia via Asia.
Available to book from 05 Jun for travel from 20 Jul, the arrangement means Air France will add its code to Qantas flights between Hong Kong and Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, and between Singapore and Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth.
Qantas will in turn add its code to flights operated by Air France between Paris CDG and Singapore and Hong Kong.
The arrangement also allows Air France customers to join codeshare services on Qantas domestic flights from Sydney to Canberra, Hobart, Adelaide, Cairns and Darwin, while providing reciprocal lounge and frequent flyer benefits for both carriers’ customers.
“This is great news for our customers who want to travel to Europe via Asia, giving them another option to get to Paris and more opportunities to earn Frequent Flyer Points,” said the ceo of Qantas International, Alison Webster.
“The return of this popular codeshare delivers on our strategy of partnering to provide customers with access to an expanded network and more seamless travel experiences wherever they want to fly.”
