IndiGo and Qatar Airways to get into code-share pact

IndiGo, the country's largest private carrier, is all set to announce a strategic code-share partnership with Qatar Airways, months after it put on hold active discussions in the matter. The two carriers are expected to announce the details of the partnership on Thursday.

"About 5-6 months back, IndiGo and Qatar Airways were actively discussing a code-share partnership. In between, IndiGo announced code-share with Turkish Airlines. Now, it seems they have finalised the deal with Qatar Airways," said an industry executive.

The development assumes significance in the wake of the government move to sell Air India and the two airlines may jointly bid for the national carrier.

The market has also been rife with speculation about Qatar Airways buying a stake in IndiGo. Ever since IndiGo became eligible to fly overseas, it has been aggressively expanding its flight and frequency on foreign routes.A marketing or deeper alliance with Qatar Airways will lend it better connectivity.
