Qatar Airways And Middle East Airlines Announce New Codeshare Agreement

DOHA – Qatar Airways and Middle East Airlines (MEA) have signed an historic codeshare agreement that will enable MEA passengers to fly with Qatar Airways between Beirut-Doha-Beirut from March 28.

Qatar Airways’ Chief Executive Officer and MEA’s Chairman Director General Mr Mohamad El Hout signed the codeshare agreement in a special signing ceremony today in Doha, Qatar.

“This codeshare marks an historic milestone for Qatar Airways and Middle East Airlines, as well as Middle East aviation generally,” said Mr Al Baker.

“MEA is the first Middle-East based airline that we have signed a codeshare agreement, as we continue to pursue strategic alliances with other business partners.

“The new codeshare agreement reflects a strong sense of business cooperation between the two airlines.

“MEA has been one of the Middle East’s longest serving airlines, and under Mr El Hout, MEA is being transformed into a modern international airline that is delivering a very high quality product.

“The codeshare will allow Qatar Airways to carry MEA passengers on its flights between Beirut-Doha-Beirut.

“It will also allow frequent flyer members of Qatar Airways’ Privilege Club and MEA’s Cedar Miles to earn and burn their miles on the entire network of both airlines.

“We extend a very warm welcome to MEA and MEA passengers to Qatar and Qatar Airways,” said Mr Al Baker.

Qatar Airways continues to build a network of strategic alliances with other airlines. At the recent ITB Berlin travel exhibition the airline announced an extended codeshare agreement with Lufthansa.

Qatar Airways also has codeshare agreements with Malaysian Airlines, Philippines Airlines, Alitalia, Biman and Garuda Indonesia.

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.
