Qantas is expected to finalise a codesharing alliance with Emirates as early as next week, The Australian has reported.
Details of the deal have yet to be confirmed but it will likely include Qantas services to Dubai and possibly the end of Qantas’ money-losing Frankfurt route, the newspaper said.
The codesharing deal is part of an effort to turn around Qantas‘ international operations, which lost $450 million last year. It would also counter rival Virgin Australia’s code sharing deal with Etihad.
