Qantas and Air France review french love affair partnership in the skies


Admittedly when I first heard the news I was a little excited. For me Air France and France in general has a special place in my heart. French being French is just something j’adore.

The news I am referring to is the renewed codeshare agreement between Air France and Qantas which will connect Australia and Paris with more options than ever before via Hong Kong and Singapore.

Available for booking from 5 June for travel from 20 July 2018, Air France will add its code to Qantas flights between Hong Kong and Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane and between Singapore and Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth. The agreement will see the codeshare on over 200 weekly flights.

Air France eligible customers will also be able to access Qantas lounges in Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia, as well as Qantas eligible customers to Air France lounges in Paris, Hong Kong and Singapore.
