In a move to enhance travel connectivity and provide passengers with more options, Qatar Airways and Aer Lingus have announced a new codeshare partnership starting March 13, 2024.

This collaboration aims to benefit travellers across the UK, Ireland, and beyond.

The Qatar Airways and Aer Lingus codeshare partnership marks a significant step towards providing travellers with enhanced connectivity and expanded route options. The partnership allows Qatar Airways to add its codeshare on flights operated by Aer Lingus and Aer Lingus Regional, strengthening its ties within the International Airlines Group (IAG).

Passengers can now obtain seamless connections between Qatar Airways and Aer Lingus flights via major hubs in Dublin, London, and Manchester. This expanded connectivity opens up a plethora of destinations within Ireland and the UK, including cities like Aberdeen, Belfast, Cork, and Glasgow, with easy access to Qatar Airways’ extensive global network through Doha’s Hamad International Airport.

Qatar Airways Chief Commercial Officer, Thierry Antinori, said: ‘Our new codeshare partnership with Aer Lingus demonstrates Qatar Airways’ 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 codeshare agreement builds upon the strategic alliance between Qatar Airways, British Airways, and Iberia, offering enhanced global connectivity and premium travel options across continents.
