AF/KL plot BKK codeshare
QANTAS is set to boost its codeshare co-operation with Air France and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, lodging an application for a revised capacity allocation on the Thailand route.
According to a submission to the International Air Services Commission (IASC), it is proposed that Air France and KLM will place their codes on QF operated flights between Sydney and Bangkok.
Qantas has requested a determination in time for the expanded arrangements to be put into place effective 01 Dec, on a free sale codeshare basis.
There is already an existing agreement between Qantas and Air France/KLM, covering Qantas flights from Australia to Hong Kong and Singapore with onward connections to Paris and Amsterdam.
Qantas and KLM have been cooperating on flights from Sydney, Perth, Melbourne and Brisbane for exactly 12 months, while the QF/AF agreement was implemented in Jul 2018.
The IASC is inviting submissions about the review of the existing Qantas determination on the Thailand route, with a deadline of 13 Nov 2019.
