The first flight of Emirates & Qantas
Dubai will become a one-stop hub, opening up Europe for Qantas passengers, with access to 33 European destinations, including daily A380 flights to London Heathrow, Paris, Rome and other biggest cities.
Codeshare flights across most parts of the combined Qantas and Emirates international network are now available for sale, and customers can also make bookings for Australian domestic Emirates codeshare flights.
The official kickoff of the new partnership was marked by a tandem flight of two A380 superjumbos, one from each airline, that took off from Sydney Airport for a flyover across Sydney's Harbour Bridge and Opera House. ■
