Aer Lingus has signed a codeshare agreement with Qatar Airways meaning that the Doha-based airline now codeshares with all IAG airlines including British Airways, Iberia and Vueling.

The latest codeshare agreement means Aer Lingus and Qatar Airways passengers will be able to connect between Qatar Airways and Aer Lingus flights at London Heathrow (LHR/EGLL), Dublin (DUB/EIDW) and Manchester Airport (MAN/EGCC).

Qatar Airways chief commercial officer, Thierry Antinori, said: “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.”

Qatar Airways offers a wider choice of destinations for Aer Lingus passengers, particularly travelling to Asia and Oceania via its Doha hub.

Aer Lingus chief strategy and planning officer, Reid Moody, added: “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.”
