42 new countries, like Italy, the Maldives, Norway, Singapore and Sweden, have been added to the shared network of Qatar Airways and British Airways. This gives passengers better access to destinations in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and Oceania. Customers will now have more options regarding prices and flight timings. They can choose direct flights or flights connecting to London or Doha. All of this is part of a plan by Qatar Airways and British Airways to “Move Further Together” by improving their combined network. 

Airlines Have Common Loyalty Currency Called Avios 

Travellers can earn and spend Avios, the loyalty currency used by both airlines, with more freedom. They will also be able to use a single connecting ticket to travel over a large portion of both airlines’ networks. In addition, passengers can link their Qatar Airways Privilege Club and British Airways Executive Club account balances to transfer Avios and use the combined balances to get rewards from both programmes.

The partnership also gives passengers access to the private lounges and cabins of both airlines, such as British Airways’ new Club Suite and Qatar Airways’ award-winning Qsuite.
