Qantas Airways to codeshare with Bangkok Airways

12 Mar 2014 by Clement Huang

Qantas Airways will fly to five new destinations in Thailand – Koh Samui, Chiang Mai, Phuket, Chiang Rai and Krabi – following a new codeshare agreement with Bangkok Airways.

Expected to commence from March 30 subject to regulatory approval, five of the new codeshare flights depart from the Thai capital while another takes off from Singapore.

“The new codeshare services will allow customers to connect to their holiday destination via Bangkok or Singapore, with more opportunities to earn frequent flyer points and have their luggage checked straight through to their final destination,” said Qantas International CEO, Simon Hickey.

The following services operated by Bangkok Airways will feature Qantas’ flight code, and will be available for booking and travel from March 30:

Singapore – Koh Samui

Bangkok – Koh Samui

Bangkok – Phuket

Bangkok – Chiang Mai

Bangkok – Krabi

Bangkok – Chiang Rai

The two carriers are also working on a reciprocal agreement to enable Bangkok Airways’ customers to book Qantas’ international services from Bangkok and Singapore to domestic destinations within Australia.

The new partnership with Bangkok Airways follows a number of recent initiatives by the Australian flag carrier to boost its offerings within Asia, including a new codeshare agreement with China Southern (see here), new lounges in Singapore and Hong Kong (see here), and a major upgrade to the airline’s A330 fleet starting at the end of the year.
