Comair, the franchise of British Airways has agreed a code-share agreement with Qatar Airways, adding three new African destinations to the Qatar Airways map, providing additional flight options to travellers in Durban and Cape Town. Coming into effect on the 23rd February 2016, Qatar Airways will place its code on flights with British Airways livery, operated by Comair, between Johannesburg and Cape Town, Harare, Durban, Victoria Falls and Port Elizabeth.

Comair has hub operations in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban, South Africa, easily connecting on to Qatar Airways-operated flights to Doha and beyond to more than 150 destinations.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “Africa is on the move, and travellers deserve better itineraries for their travel needs. Expanding our network with Comair was a natural progression of our investment in Africa and our desire to make it easier to visit this exciting part of the world, and for the families, businesses and organisations based here to connect globally. With this agreement, more than 150 destinations in the Qatar Airways network now connect easily to these business, adventure travel and cultural capitals.”
