Qantas-Emirates Tie-Up Given Thumbs Up

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has approved a partnership between Qantas and Emirates for a period of five years. The partnership will allow the two airlines to connect on 98 flights a week between Australia and Dubai. From Dubai, passengers will be able to connect to 65 one-stop destinations in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. “Qantas is an Australian icon and the future of its international business is much brighter with this partnership,” commented Qantas Group CEO, Alan Joyce. “Customers are already responding very strongly to the joint network that Qantas and Emirates have built, and to the frequent flyer benefits that extend across it, with a significant increase in bookings.”
