Emirates and Qantas to renew their vows

Posted 19 October 2017 · Add Comment

Emirates and Qantas are hoping to continue their special relationship and have applied to the the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) to renew their alliance.

The two carriers have asked for a five-year authorisation for the alliance, which sees them co-operate on services to the Middle East, Europe, Africa and to New Zealand.

“With global networks now more complementary than ever, both airlines can leverage each other’s network strengths to deliver significant public benefits through a shared goal of premium customer service, while also growing sustainably,” say the airlines in the application.

The carriers are also requesting that an ongoing capacity condition on their joint trans-Tasman routes be removed as it is “serves no effective or efficient regulatory purpose”.

The new authorisation is expected to be in place before current agreement expires in April 2018.
