Qatar Airways and LATAM Airlines Group enter into codeshare agreement

Akbar Al Baker, Group chief executive, Qatar Airways, said, "We have witnessed significant growing demand between South America to Qatar and beyond. Our new codeshare destinations not only meet that demand, but provide a service for our valued passengers in Doha, and from dozens of destinations globally to new, exciting places to explore in Brazil. With this new codeshare, more than half of LATAM’s domestic destinations in Brazil are accessible to customers flying on Qatar Airways.”
Additionally, Qatar Airways Cargo has also expanded its footprint in South America, with commencement of freighter services to São Paulo, Brazil; Buenos Aires, Argentina; and Quito, Ecuador. Launched in February 2017, the new freighter service aims to meet the region’s growing need for import and export trade with the Middle East and Asia.
