Qatar Airways and Aer Lingus (EI) will commence a new codeshare arrangement on March 13, 2024. The codeshare will provide customers with increased access to more destinations in the United Kingdom and Ireland, as well as benefits for travelers all over the world, including Africa, Asia, Australia, the Middle East, and New Zealand.

Qatar Airways will expand its codeshare to flights operated by Aer Lingus (EI), Ireland’s national carrier, and Aer Lingus Regional, strengthening Qatar Airways’ continuous relationship expansion with International Airlines Group (IAG). Once implemented, Qatar Airways will have codeshare coverage with all IAG carriers, including British Airways, Iberia, Vueling, and Aer Lingus, strengthening its position in the European market.

This new codeshare will connect Qatar Airways with Aer Lingus (EI) flights through Dublin, London, and Manchester. Customers will be able to fly between Irish and UK cities such as Aberdeen, Belfast, Cork, and Glasgow using Qatar Airways’ enormous global network from Doha’s hub at Hamad International Airport.

Qatar Airways Chief Commercial Officer, Thierry Antinori, stated, “Our new codeshare partnership with Aer Lingus demonstrates Qatar Airways’ commitment to its customers, who will benefit from a wider choice of global destinations. The move also builds on our long-term strategic relationship with IAG as we expand our codeshare coverage even further. It is an exciting opportunity to extend our exceptional service to even more travellers through this partnership.”

Reid Moody, Aer Lingus’ Chief Strategy and Planning Officer, said,  “We’re pleased to launch our new codeshare partnership with Qatar Airways, offering their customers a great choice of routes and destinations on Aer Lingus’ extensive network of flights across the UK and Ireland. Customers can expect a warm welcome and friendly service and we look forward to welcoming them on board.”

This follows the recent growth of Qatar Airways, British Airways, and Iberia’s strategic alliance, which provides worldwide connectivity to more countries than any other airline joint venture.
