Qatar Airways And Thai Airways Announce New Historic Codeshare Agreement

DOHA — Qatar Airways and Thailand’s national airline Thai Airways have today signed a codeshare agreement that will link the fast growing Qatar Airways route network with Thai Airways’ network of 35 countries.

Qatar Airways’ Chief Executive Officer Mr Akbar Al Baker and Thai Airways’ Executive Vice President Commercial Mr Suthep Suebsantiwongse signed the agreement that will initially allow Qatar Airways to carry Thai passengers on the Bangkok-Doha/Doha-Bangkok sectors.

The signing agreement was attended by Thailand’s Ambassador to Qatar Mr Voravee Wirasambran, First Secretary Karoon Lirdluckanawong, the Permanent Secretary to Thailand’s Ministry of Transport Mr Srisook Chandrangsu, Deputy Director General of Thailand’s Department of Civil Aviation Mr Chaisak Angkasuwan, Thai Airways’ Vice President Commercial Support Mr Pridi Boonsue, Qatar Airways’ General Manager Commercial Mr Mohamed Saleh Fakhri, Qatar Airways’ Regional Manager Far East Mr Marwan Koleilat, and Qatar Airways’ Manager Alliances and Tariffs Mr Stephan Baudemont.

“Today’s new codeshare agreement marks the start of an important and co-operative relationship between Qatar Airways and Thai Airways,” said Mr Al Baker.

“This agreement effectively links the Qatar Airways growing route network of 49 destinations to Thai Airways’ network of 72 destinations in four continents.

“The codeshare agreement allows both airlines to carry each other passengers between Doha and Bangkok.

“As Thai Airways has yet to commence service to Doha, Qatar Airways will initially be carrying Thai Airways passengers between the two cities and onto the Qatar Airways network.

“We certainly value the experience and services credentials that Thai Airways brings to the relationship, given their consistently high reputation in the industry as a leader in airline service.

“We look forward to a prosperous relationship with Thai Airways and a relationship that is going to deliver additional value to the passengers of both airlines.

“This agreement with Thai Airways continues our strategy to build a network of strategic alliances with the world’s other leading airlines,” said Mr Al Baker.

Qatar Airways is one of the fastest growing airlines in the world, and is increasingly being recognised for its high service standards. Qatar Airways was recently ranked the world’s seventh best airline, by airline quality monitor Skytrax. The airline presently flies to 49 destinations and will be flying to 60 destinations by 2005.

Doha-based Qatar Airways will operate a fleet of 110 aircraft by 2013 – almost double the existing size. Qatar Airways has ordered 80 Airbus A350s, 60 Boeing 787s and 32 Boeing 777s, with deliveries of the latter having started in November 2007. The airline is a launch customer of the twin-deck Airbus A380 ‘super jumbos’ with five aircraft on order and scheduled for delivery from 2010. Qatar Airways moves to the New Doha International Airport in 2010, when the first phase of the new facility opens. For more information, visit www.ndiaproject.com


Qatar Airways is one of only six airlines in the world with a Five Star ranking for service and excellence awarded by Skytrax, the independent aviation industry monitoring agency. Skytrax also named Qatar Airways’ cabin crew as Best in the Middle East for the fifth year running in 2007 following a survey of more than 15 million passengers worldwide.
