Kangaroo Route Code-Sharing Expands

30th Apr 1998

British Airways and Qantas start code-sharing their services via Bangkok tomorrow (May 1), offering customers the widest choice of flights, schedules and destinations between Europe and Australia and Thailand and Australia.

A choice of 34 more services each week will be available through Bangkok in addition to the current code-sharing services already available between London and Australia over Singapore.

This brings to138 the total number of services between Europe and London, offering 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.”
