American Airlines has signed an agreement with Doha-based Qatar Airways, one of the world’s fastest-growing airlines and a Skytrax 5-Star rated carrier, to codeshare on each other’s flights.

Following Government approvals the new codeshare agreement will offer customers more seamless choices by allowing the two airlines to work together to improve flight schedules and connection times.

“Our extensive codeshare relationship with Qatar Airways will provide our customers with easy, premium access when travelling to and from the Middle East and beyond,” said Strategic Alliances American’s Vice President Kurt Stache.

“This new codeshare relationship with Qatar is another example of how American is focused on building its global network through closer coordination with its alliance partners around the world.”

The agreement with Qatar Airways will include codesharing on non-stop flights between the US and Doha, flights connecting at the carriers’ European gateways such as Paris and London, and flights to cities in the US and beyond Doha.

Additionally, members of the American Airlines advantage program will be able to earn miles on the codeshare flights operated by Qatar Airways.

Customers will be able to book travel on codeshare flights from 10 February 2013 for travel beginning 26 February 2013.
