Qantas has boosted its North American network through new codeshare services with American Airlines, Alaska Airlines and Westjet.

The new codeshares come into place for travel after October 25 and cover about 40 routes to the US, Canada and Mexico, Qantas said on Friday.

They include flights from San Francisco, which Qantas is resuming service to from Sydney in December, to cities such as Charlotte, Seattle, Philadelphia, Portland and Palm Springs.

“With the launch of our nonstop flights to San Francisco later this year, we’ve identified an opportunity to position this port as another key US hub for Qantas customers by extending the codeshares we already have in place,” Qantas International chief executive Gareth Evans said in a statement.

“Our frequent flyers in particular will benefit from booking on the Qantas code, with increased opportunities to earn points and status credits.”

There are also codeshare flights on American from Los Angeles to Mexico City, Guadalajara and San Jose de Cabo in Mexico, as well as 25 city-pairs in Canada on Westjet flights from Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto.

It is the second codeshare agreement Qantas has signed this week, following the announcement it would add its code on Solomon Airlines’ four flights a week from Brisbane and once a week service from Sydney to Honiara.

    Sorry to be off-topic, but this picture really shows (to me at least!!) how great looking the 747 is compared to the ‘block of flats’ A380.

    Also, good news for QF pax etc etc 🙂

    I agree totally.A Queen amongst the BBW”s. Boeing always made great looking Aircraft. From 17,27,37,57,,67,47,77.I don’t think Airbus stacks up apart from the A350.

    Informed and relevent comment as always chaps…

    It’s good to see more routs open up but has Qantas ever thoguht about starting up JETstar USA/North America using Boeing 737-800/900s NG/MAX. Also would it be smart for Qants to buy up to 6 747-800s to add extra flights and seats on flights to the US etc? I’d like input from you guys.

    @ Jason. Your comment reminds me of the idiot who repetitiously comments ‘if its not a Boeing I’m not going’ to stories about Airbus in the media.

    And as a passenger, I prefer the A380 to the B747 and the A320 to the B737. But love the B707.

    So we can expand our network but don’t have to fly there? While travelling public get convenience to book the trip and those company advance with more monopoly of the market share. What is this benefit to Australian job? Pilots, cabin crew and engineer for instance? Code sharing is two way traffic. Which part of the domestic route do we open to US carriers was never mentioned.

    says:

    Both great aircraft in there own right, although A380 is so much more advanced and quieter than the great 747, although I would like to compare the new 747-8.

    Funny reading about what plane is better.
    The best planes are the ones where no one sits next to you.

    it will be good to see Qantas with boeing 787-9 and boeing 777 8 9 in future years
