Qatar Airways and Malaysia Airlines announce significant codeshare expansion

Qatar Airways will expand its codeshare cooperation with Malaysia Airlines, starting from January 27, 2020. The new codeshare agreement will strengthen the two airlines’ strategic partnership, first initiated in 2001.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “Since 2001, both airlines have witnessed the significant benefits codeshare cooperation has brought, providing passengers with unrivalled service and seamless connections. The expansion of codeshare cooperation between Qatar Airways and Malaysia Airlines is a natural next step in the strengthening of our partnership.”

With ten Qatar Airways’ destinations covered by the airlines’ current codeshare cooperation, the expanded agreement will allow Malaysia Airlines passengers to book travel to 20 additional Qatar Airways gateways in Europe, America, and Africa.

In turn, Qatar Airways passengers will benefit from access to four exciting new destinations in South East Asia. They can now book travel on Malaysia Airlines’ flights to Sibu, Malaysia; Alor Setar, Malaysia; Medan, Indonesia; and Surabaya, Indonesia. This brings the total number of codeshare routes in Malaysia Airlines’ network to 24.
