British Airways and Qantas joint code-sharing services via Bangkok start tommorrow, offering passengers the widest choice of flights, schedules and destinations between Europe and Australia and Thailand and Australia.
It means that, from May 1, their passengers will have a choice of 34 services each week on the route through Bangkok.
With the two airlines already marketing and selling each other’s services between London and Australia over Singapore, it brings to 138 the total number of services they offer each week between London and Australia.
This gives customers more flexibility on timings, routings and fares.
John Wood, British Airways’ Regional Director Asia Pacific, said the extension of code-sharing was further evidence that the partnership with Qantas was going from strength to strength and continued to deliver real benefits for passengers of both airlines.
He said: “We are delighted with this latest development in our alliance with Qantas. This will offer our customers an even greater choice on our global network.”
Geoff Dixon, Qantas Executive General Manager Commercial, said: “Increased co-operation on the Kangaroo Route will provide unprecedented flexibility for people travelling between UK and the Australia.”
