Qatar and Vueling join forces to operate to Croatia
Qatar Airways has recently announced plans to code share with Vueling, the Spanish airline carrier on 67 routes, some of which are in Croatia.
The Qatari carrier, which owns a 20 percent share of International Airlines Group (IAG), will add its flight numbers and designator code onto services from both Barcelona and Rome to Dubrovnik and Split operated by the group's low cost carrier from Spain. In the upcoming winter season Vueling, which has previously operated only seasonal flights to Croatia, will maintain flights from Rome to Dubrovnik. On the other hand, Qatar Airways will continue to maintain ten weekly flights from Doha to Zagreb.
The new code share agreement, which builds upon the interline agreement signed between the two carriers in October 2014, is already effective and bookings can be made via Qatar Airways.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “Our new code share agreement with Vueling Airlines will allow even greater opportunities for passengers across Europe to connect to the global Qatar Airways network''.
