Emirates & Qantas announce extended partnership until 2028

UAE’s airline major, Emirates has extended its codeshare partnership with Qantas, the flag carrier of Australia, by another five years.

The agreement was inked at the IATA’s (International Air Transport Association) Annual General Meeting held in Boston and is expected to offer passengers a vast joint network, with large numbers of seats available to travel across the regions of Australia, New Zealand, Europe, and the United Kingdom.

The firms will be seeking reauthorization from supervisors, such as the Consumer Commission and Australian Competition, for enduring the core elements of the collaboration, including coordination of pricing, sales, schedules, and tourism marketing on permitted routes until 2028.

The contract contains a five-year renewal option once the initial term has expired.

According to sources, this partnership will assist Emirates and Qantas to recover from the impact of Covid-19 on their respective businesses. Additionally, both the airlines have a monitoring approval in place to function together till March 2023.

Tim Clark, President of Emirates, said that extending their partnership with Qantas is a testimony of the firm's success. Given the challenges faced by both the organization during the pandemic, this announcement acknowledges that Emirates is here for a long time.

Emirates' ambition to provide passengers travelling to and from Australia with the greatest connections and frequent-flyer perks on the combined network is reflected in the agreement.

Mr. Clark stated that as borders reopen, they look forward to reinstating the Australian flight itineraries, including its popular A380 trips.

In September, Emirates said that it would increase the number of cities served by its A380 fleet to 27 by the end of November, adding 11 additional flights to its current 16 destinations.

It added that it would restart A380 services to several leisure and business destinations during the next six weeks, including Sao Paulo, Amsterdam, Madrid, Milan, Riyadh (subject to government clearances), Dusseldorf, Hamburg, Barcelona, Johannesburg, and Zurich.
