China Southern Airlines has signed a code share agreement with Qatar Airways, effective from 15 January 2020 subject to governmental approval. As the first step to strengthen the cooperation between the two airlines, this code share agreement will further improve China Southern’s network in the Middle East market and provide more diversified choices for passengers travelling with China Southern.
Moreover, this agreement will enable China Southern passengers to book the flights on Qatar Airways between Doha and Guangzhou/Beijing and further connect to more than 80 destinations in the Middle East, Europe and Africa via Doha. Together with Qatar Airways, China Southern Airlines will better develop ‘dual-hub’ strategy in Guangzhou and Beijing, and further improve the network in Middle East region.
By working together, both the airlines will explore more opportunities to improve the transfer experience and service standards, so as to better serve the customers.
