Qatar Airways signs interline agreement with Airlink

Qatar Airways has signed an interline agreement with Airlink, further expanding its presence in Southern Africa as the largest carrier to operate from the region.

An interline agreement is a relationship between airlines which allows one airline to sell services to a customer that are provided by another airline. Airlines use interline agreements to sell itineraries that they would otherwise not be able to serve alone.

The agreement with Airlink will provide passengers seamless connectivity via Cape Town, and Johannesburg to more than 20 regional destinations in Southern Africa including; Gaborone, Maun, Tete, Port Elizabeth, Lusaka, Harare and Victoria Falls.

Qatar Airways’ passengers will benefit from access to more than 25 domestic destinations via the most on time South African airline for 2020 as measured by the Airport’s Company of South Africa.

Qatar Airways Vice President Africa, Hendrik Du Preez, said: ‘As the most connected airline during the pandemic with a network that never fell below 30 destinations, we strive to continue to offer more flexibility and options for our passengers. We are delighted to sign this interline agreement with Airlink to further expand our network in the region connecting passengers to more than 25 domestic and more than 20 regional destinations. With the borders in South Africa being closed for five months, we are thrilled to re-enter the market with additional connections in South Africa and beyond.’
