Qantas has introduced codeshare services to San Diego, California following the signing of a commercial agreement with the American carrier American Eagle Airlines.
Qantas now codeshares on services operated by American Airlines’ regional affiliate American Eagle between Los Angeles and San Diego, connecting with the 24 weekly return Qantas services between Australia and Los Angeles.
Qantas Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Geoff Dixon, said the new agreement would provide travellers to North America with greater options and more convenient transfers.
“With the introduction of this new codeshare service, Qantas will increase its network to 13 destinations across North America and Canada,” he said.
Qantas already codeshares on American Airlines services between Los Angeles and Boston, New York, Miami, Washington DC, Chicago, Newark and Dallas/Fort Worth, with Reno Air, a subsidiary of American Airlines, between Los Angeles and San Francisco, and with Canadian Airlines from Honolulu to Vancouver and Toronto.
Qantas Frequent Flyer members will be able to earn points when they are booked under a Qantas flight number on the codeshare services with American Eagle.
