Qantas deal makes travel to India easier



Qantas has announced more codeshare options across India as part of an expansion of its partnership with low-cost carrier IndiGo.

Qantas launched the first phase of its codeshare agreement with IndiGo in August last year, offering connections from Qantas flights in Bengaluru and Delhi onto IndiGo services to other major Indian cities, including Mumbai and Chennai, as well as smaller destinations such as Pune and Goa.

Under the second phase of the agreement, Qantas customers can now travel to an additional eight cities, bringing the total number of Indian destinations available for connection from Delhi and Bengaluru to 21.

Qantas customers will also have more choice across IndiGo’s domestic network with more than 250 new flights available for booking.

Qantas Frequent Flyers can earn and redeem points on connecting IndiGo flights (with a QF code) and IndiGo recognises Qantas Frequent Flyer benefits for tiered members (Silver, Gold, Platinum and Platinum One) including priority check-in and priority baggage.

“Qantas’ new routes to India have proven to be incredibly popular with our customers," said Qantas Chief Customer Officer, Markus Svensson

“Our codeshare partnership with IndiGo has improved the way our customers travel between Australia and India, and the additional destinations give travellers even more options."

The codeshare destinations are Guwahati, Indore, Chandigarh, Mangalore, Jaipur, Nagpur, Thiruvananthapuram and Visakhapatnam.

Qantas operates four return flights from Melbourne to Delhi per week and four return flights from Sydney to Bengaluru per week.

IndiGo is reportedly among the fastest growing low-cost carriers in the world with 275+ aircraft connecting 73 domestic destinations and 24 international destinations.
