Qatar Airways and Aer Lingus have launched a new codeshare partnership.

Starting 13th March 2024, the codeshare gives customers greater access to more destinations across the UK and Ireland.

The move further strengthens the airlines’ ongoing partnership expansion with Aer Lingus’ parent company International Airlines Group (IAG).

Once implemented, Qatar Airways will have codeshare coverage with all IAG carriers, including British Airways, Iberia, Vueling, and Aer Lingus, solidifying its position in the European market.

This new codeshare will enable connections between both airlines’ flights through Dublin, London, and Manchester.

Customers will be able to travel between Irish and UK destinations including Aberdeen, Belfast, Cork, and Glasgow, and Qatar Airways’ extensive global network through Doha’s hub at Hamad International Airport.

Qatar Airways Chief Commercial Officer, Thierry Antinori, said: “Our new codeshare partnership with Aer Lingus demonstrates our commitment to its customers, who will benefit from a wider choice of global destinations.

“The move also builds on our long-term strategic relationship with IAG as we expand our codeshare coverage even further.

“It is an exciting opportunity to extend our exceptional service to even more travellers through this partnership.”

Aer Lingus Chief Strategy and Planning Officer, Reid Moody said, “We’re pleased to launch our new codeshare partnership with Qatar Airways, offering their customers a great choice of routes and destinations on Aer Lingus’ extensive network of flights across the UK and Ireland.

“Customers can expect a warm welcome and friendly service and we look forward to welcoming them on board.”

This follows the recent expansion of the strategic alliance between Qatar Airways, British Airways and Iberia, which offers global connectivity between more countries than any other airline joint business.
