British Airways – Qatar Airways code-sharing application 2020

On 19 November 2019, British Airways and Qatar Airways jointly applied for authorisation to coordinate their air passenger services on 26 routes between Auckland and the UK or Europe, which incorporate the London-Doha trunk route. Currently, British Airways has no direct flights to or from New Zealand, while Qatar Airways offers daily flights from Auckland to Doha.

The proposed arrangement may include coordination of schedules, revenue planning and pricing, sales and marketing activities, and service parameters and standards. Authorisation is sought for a term of 5 years.

The Ministry is now seeking submissions on the application. Submissions close 28 February 2020.
