Qatar Airways and Bangkok Airways are expanding their codeshare agreement to include a further ten routes.
The new routes are from Bangkok to Chiang Rai, Udon Thani, Luang Prabang, Vientiane, Nay Pyi Taw and Siem Reap, together with Koh Samui to Singapore, Phuket and Kuala Lumpur and Phuket to Chiang Mai.
These are in addition to the current agreement that sees Qatar Airways place its QR code on Bangkok Airways-operated flights out of Bangkok to Chiang Mai, Phuket, Krabi, Lampang, Trat, Sukhothai, Samui, Mandalay, Yangon and Phnom Penh.
Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker said: “The addition of these code-share routes with Bangkok Airways further enhances our competitive offering, while providing our passengers with an unrivalled global network among the world’s leading airlines.”
The Gulf carrier flies four-times daily between Doha and Bangkok.
Earlier this week, it emerged that Qatar Airways has reduced capacity on its Doha to Moscow Domodedovo route (see news, February 24).
