Qatar Airways has expanded its codeshare agreement with US Airways.
The new arrangement is designed to enable a greater number of US domestic connections for Qatar Airways passengers flying into Philadelphia International Airport, when the airline commences its new Doha-Philadelphia route on 2 April 2014.
The agreement with future oneworld alliance partner US Airways will see Qatar Airways place its ‘QR’ code on flights from Philadelphia to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Boston, Miami, Tampa, Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach, Fort Myers, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham airports.
“Expanding the locations from which our US customers can fly Qatar Airways is a priority, and we are excited that the expanded codeshare programme with US Airways will be in effect when we begin flights from Philadelphia next year,” said Akbar Al Baker, CEO of Qatar Airways.
“Through this strong partnership we are furthering our goal to expand on the number of travellers who can fly internationally on our five-star airline.”
Qatar Airways and US Airways have been codeshare partners since 2009.
