LONDON - British Airways and Qatar Airways extend their joint business. The news follows British Airways’ relaunch of daily services to Doha, with the airline’s first flight taking off from Gatwick this month, giving customers access to Qatar Airways’ expansive global network with connections to over 100 destinations.

The relaunch flight was operated by a Boeing 777-200ER aircraft featuring three cabin. This winter, the airlines will jointly operate up to six daily flights between London and Doha - five from London Heathrow and one from London Gatwick.

The two airlines announce that they intend to further expand their joint business and offer customers access to more destinations on their respective networks.

"The proposed expansion will give customers enhanced access from Europe to popular destinations in the Middle East, Asia, Africa and Australasia, such as Singapore, Sydney, Colombo and Nairobi," British Airways said. "It will also improve access to destinations across Europe such as Amsterdam, Madrid or Dublin."

The airlines expect to receive news of any relevant regulatory approvals of their expanded joint business proposition in the first half of 2022. Qatar Airways is a major shareholder in British Airways parent company IAG.
