Qatar Airways announces a codeshare agreement with Air Canada applicable for travel between Doha and Toronto.

Sales have started with the first codeshare flight to operate from December 15, 2020. The agreement reinforces Qatar Airways’ long-term commitment to Canadian passengers, and to boosting Canada’s global connectivity to support the recovery of tourism and trade.

Qatar Airways’ passengers can now enjoy seamless, one-stop connections to and from Toronto via Hamad International Airport (HIA).

Air Canada passengers will benefit from being able to book travel on Qatar Airways’ flights between Toronto and Doha and onwards to more than 75 destinations in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said, “We are delighted to secure this strategic codeshare agreement with Air Canada to provide our travelers with a seamless journey to and from Toronto with excellence in state-of-the-art and sustainable aircraft, safety, comfort, and onboard service. The agreement will increase choices for thousands of passengers and allows for smooth connectivity to a significant number of new destinations – particularly throughout Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. By harnessing our complementary strengths, this agreement will also provide benefits to aid the recovery of international travel.”

Qatar Airways began flying to Canada in June 2011 with three weekly flights to Montreal that expanded to four weekly in December 2018.

The airline has worked closely with the Government of Canada and its embassies around the world throughout the pandemic, temporarily operating three weekly services to Toronto in addition to charter flights to Vancouver to help bring more than 40,000 passengers home to Canada.

By the end of the IATA Winter Season, Qatar Airways plans to rebuild its network to 126 destinations including 20 in Africa, 11 in the Americas, 42 in Asia-Pacific, 38 in Europe, and 15 in the Middle East. Many cities will be served with a strong schedule with daily or more frequencies.

Multiple award-winning airlines, Qatar Airways was named ‘World’s Best Airline’ by the 2019 World

Air Canada is Canada's largest domestic and international airline. Canada's flag carrier is among the 20 largest airlines in the world and in 2019 served over 51 million customers. Ranked as a high-quality Four-Star airline by Skytrax, Air Canada was also awarded the 2019 Best Airline in North America.

Recently, Qatar Airways announced Travel Bubble Holiday’ Packages established between Qatar and the Maldives. Aimed at providing peace of mind to Qatar’s citizens and residents to holiday safely, the travel bubble removes the need to quarantine or self-isolate upon return to Qatar. Additionally, residents who avail of the package will also not need an Exceptional Entry Permit to return home (to Qatar).

Recently, the airline launched new, simplified fare families across all travel classes in a bid to offer greater choice and flexibility to its passengers.

To ensure travelers can plan their travel with peace of mind in the current climate, the airline has extended its booking policies to offer even more choice to its passengers. The airline allows unlimited date changes, and passengers can change their destination as often as they need if it is within 5,000 miles of the original one. The airline will not charge any fare differences for travel completed before 31 December 2020, after which fare rules will apply. All tickets booked for travel up to 31 December 2020 will be valid for two years from the date of issuance.
