Qatar Airways and LATAM Airlines Brazil announced that they have expanded cooperation on code sharing, optimizing connectivity for passengers of both airlines to and from destinations in Asia, the Middle East and South America.
The extended agreement will allow Qatar Airways passengers to book travel on an additional 45 LATAM Airlines Brazil flights and access more than 40 domestic and international destinations in the South American airline network, including Brasilia, Curitiba, Porto Velho, Rio Branco, Rio de Janeiro, San Jose, Lima (Peru), Montevido (Uruguay) and Santiago (Chile).
LATAM Airlines Brazil passengers will also benefit from access to the 10 recently expanded weekly flights to and from Sao Paulo, operated by the modern Airbus A350-1000. Passengers of the South American carrier will also be able to book travel to eight additional destinations on Qatar Airways, including Bangkok, Hong Kong, Maldives, Nairobi, Seoul and Tokyo, along with other connecting flights to destinations such as Baku, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.
“South America is a strategically important market for Qatar Airways. We are proud to demonstrate our strong commitment to passengers traveling to and from South America by offering even more flexible travel options,” said Qatar Airways Group CEO Akbar Al Baker.
“We are expanding connectivity and destination choice for our customers. Even in a challenging year like 2020, we are committed to offering our passengers more options to travel further with greater comfort and simplicity,” said LATAM Brazil CEO Jerome Cadier.
