Our Bureau - : Sep 11, 2023 - : 9:55 pm

Qatar Airways has announced a new codeshare partnership with Xiamen Airlines, the first Chinese airline to operate passenger nonstop flights from Mainland China to Qatar.

Under the cooperation agreement, Xiamen Airlines will launch daily flights between Beijing’s Daxing International Airport and Hamad International Airport, the home of Qatar Airways with its Boeing 787-9 aircraft.

The flights, which will commence on Oct. 20, arrive in Doha at 22:45 and leave at 02:00 providing passengers optimal connections to key markets in Qatar Airways’ leading global network beyond Doha, in the Middle East, Africa and Europe.

In addition to the flights from Beijing, Xiamen Airlines will also launch two weekly flights from Xiamen, the special economic zone of Fujian Sheng province, to Doha. The flights commence on Oct. 31 and offer the same seamless connectivity to Qatar Airways’ network as the Beijing flights, arriving to Doha from Xiamen at 05:00 and departing in the evening at 19:30.

Qatar Airways will codeshare on these new flights, which will greatly enhance its presence in Mainland China, that comprises 6 destinations with a total of 31 weekly flights operated by Qatar Airways followed by double daily flights to Hong Kong. As part of the new agreement, Xiamen Airlines will place its marketing code on Qatar Airways flights to and from Beijing.

“We are proud and honoured that Xiamen Airlines has chosen Doha as a new destination in their network and their only destination in the Middle East,” said Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker. “Their flights are perfectly connected to our unparalleled global network offering customers of both airlines greater choice and seamless travel experiences.”

“Both Qatar Airways and Xiamen Airlines are the winners of APEX World Class Awards in 2022 showing our shared commitment to high quality service,” said Zhao Dong, Chairman of Xiamen Airlines. “The partnership of two Five-Star airlines will bring wonderful flying experiences to the customers worldwide.”
