Travel Daily - - Front Page -

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.
