Qatar Airways and S7 Airlines are set to strengthen their relationship with the launch of new codeshare arrangement between the two oneworld member airlines, further expanding travel opportunities for customers.
Under the new arrangement, Qatar Airways’ passengers travelling from Doha will be able to connect onto destinations with S7 Airlines including Sochi, Chelyabinsk, Samara, Kazan, St. Petersburg, Omsk, Perm, Rostov, Yekaterinburg, Tyumen and Helsinki. Likewise, S7 Airlines customers will be able to book from Moscow to Phuket (Thailand) and Phnom Penh (Cambodia) via Doha.
Not only will the new codeshare arrangement make connections simpler by allowing for a single carrier code booking across multiple flights, but there is the added benefit that members of the airlines’ frequent flyer programmes will be able to collect frequent flyer points on each other’s flights to their final destinations.
The new codeshare, which came into place on Wednesday (8 October), comes at a time when Qatar Airways will soon celebrate its first anniversary as a oneworld member airline, having joined the prestigious global airline alliance on the 30 October 2013.
Qatar Airways has seen rapid growth in just 17 years of operations, currently flying a modern fleet of 136 aircraft to more than 144 key business and leisure destinations across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific and the Americas. www.qatarairways.com
