Posted 15 October 2019 · Add Comment

Qatar Airways will host LATAM Airlines Group’s board of directors and senior management in Doha between 13 and 15 October. During the three-day visit, LATAM’s board members and senior management toured Qatar Airways’ state-of-the-art technical facilities and Hamad International Airport’s award-winning lounges.

 

As part of the visit, Qatar Airways announced an expanded codeshare agreement with LATAM Airlines Brazil, with immediate effect. The bilateral codeshare will provide Qatar Airways passengers with connections to destinations throughout Brazil and South America including Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia, Curitiba, Lima and Bogota to name a few.

LATAM passengers will also be able to travel on Qatar Airways’ flights between Sao Paulo (GRU) and Doha (DOH), offering onward connections to more than 25 destinations in the Middle-East, East Africa and South Asia, including Vietnam, Malaysia and Singapore.

Qatar Airways first began flying to Brazil in 2010 with a service from Doha, Qatar to Sao Paulo, Brazil that connects onwards to Buenos Aires, Argentina. In August 2017, Qatar Airways announced a unilateral codeshare agreement with LATAM Airlines Brazil, expanding Qatar Airways’ virtual network in Brazil.

Qatar Airways Group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker said: “We were delighted to welcome LATAM’s board and senior management to Doha and to have had such productive discussions about how we can continue to work together to benefit our millions of passengers and cargo customers. Since 2017, Qatar Airways has witnessed the significant benefits that codeshare cooperation has brought, providing passengers with unrivalled service and a seamless connection between South America and the Middle-East and Asia. The expansion of the codeshare agreement between Qatar Airways and LATAM Airlines Brazil will provide even greater connectivity for passengers of the World’s Best Airline and the Best Airline in South America.”

LATAM Airlines Group CEO,  Enrique Cueto, said: “We thank Qatar Airways for inviting us to Doha to hold our board meeting and visit its state-of-the-art facilities. We had productive meetings and had the opportunity to learn about the products and services that make it one of the world’s leading airlines for customers.”
