Qantas and Emirates have announced a 10-year global aviation partnership, including integrated network collaboration with coordinated pricing, sales and scheduling, plus a benefit-sharing model.

Together, Emirates and Qantas will offer 98 weekly services between Australia and Dubai once Qantas launches daily services from Sydney and Melbourne to London via Dubai. The carriers will also coordinate their services between Australia and New Zealand, as well as services between Australia and Southeast Asia.

The companies’ frequent-flyer programs will also be aligned, providing reciprocal access to benefits and exclusive services and expanded opportunities for customers to earn and redeem their points. www.qantas.com.au; www.emirates.com
