Bangkok Airways begins code-sharing with Qantas

BANGKOK -- Regional airline operator Bangkok Airways has launched code-share flights with Australian flag carrier Qantas Airways. This new partnership arrangement will provide smoother travel for Qantas passengers flying to Thailand's popular tourist destinations, such as Phuket and Chiang Mai, via Bangkok or Singapore. 

     Flights on six regional routes, including Bankok-Phuket, Bangkok-Chiang Mai and Singapore-Ko Samui, will connect to Qantas flights. Passengers flying Bangkok Airways can have their luggage checked to their final destination and earn Qantas frequent flyer miles.

     "I am confident that this will strengthen Bangkok Airways' extensive code-share scheme as well as boosting tourism in Thailand and Asia," Peter Wiesner, Bangkok Airways senior vice president of network management, said in a statement.

     The two airlines aim to expand the partnership so that Bangkok Airways passengers can book seats on Qantas' international routes from Bangkok and Singapore to Australia. The alliance will also cover several domestic Qantas flights.

     Bangkok Airways focuses mainly on short-haul flights within Thailand and Southeast Asia. For longer routes, it operates code-share services with several airlines, including Japan Airlines and the United Arab Emirates' Etihad Airlines.
