QF beefs up US codeshares
Qantas has announced a significant expansion of its codeshare arrangements with American Airlines, WestJet and Alaska Airlines, seeing the QF code will placed on 40 additional routes across the US, Canada and Mexico.
The move will see Qantas offer codeshare services on a total of more than 200 routes to over 100 destinations in North America.
“With the launch of our nonstop flights to San Francisco later this year, we’ve identified an opportunity to position this port as another key US hub for Qantas customers, by extending the codeshares we already have in place,” said QF International CEO Gareth Evans.
The new Qantas codeshare routes include flights ex LAX with American Airlines to Charlotte, Columbus, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Raleigh Durham in the US as well as Vancouver in Canada. San Francisco codeshare services will include AA flights to Charlotte, Philadelphia and Phoenix as well as Alaska Airlines services to Seattle, Portland and Palm Springs.
There’s also a major expansion of the Qantas codeshare network in Canada, with QF adding codeshares on an additional 25 city pairs in partnership with WestJet, while Mexico services will expand from LAX with AA codeshares to Mexico City, Guadalajara and San Jose de Cabo.
