STRATEGIC DEVELOPMENTS

On 28 September, IAG announced a joint business agreement between British Airways and Qatar Airways which will start on October 30, 2016. It includes a revenue-sharing agreement between London and Doha and the joint business will allow the airlines to cooperate on scheduling and pricing. They will also codeshare on all non-stop flights operated between the UK and Doha and connecting services to destinations in the UK, continental Europe, Middle East, Asia and Africa. This will include British Airways' daily direct flights from London Heathrow to Doha.

 

On 29 September, British Airways announced that it is partnering with another great British brand - Marks & Spencer - to offer customers on short-haul flights the option to purchase a premium food range on board.  The new British Airways menu, which will replace the airline's current complimentary snacks, will be available in the economy cabin on short-haul and domestic flights from 2017. Additionally, customers will be able to pay with Avios via the BA app or with their Executive Club card.
