Qatar Airways has announced it has signed a codeshare agreement with Danish carrier SUN-AIR, a franchise of British Airways.

Under the deal, SUN-AIR and Qatar Airways will introduce codeshare flights between Billund, Aalborg and Aarhus in Jutland, the Western part of Denmark, and several European destinations including Oslo, Brussels, Manchester and Munich.

This new cooperation expands the options for Qatar Airways' passengers travelling to and from Denmark, opening up an enhanced range of travel options in addition to Copenhagen, the Doha airline said in a statement.

Qatar Airways group chief executive Akbar Al Baker said: “SUN-AIR’s company values are closely aligned with those of Qatar Airways and we therefore see excellent opportunities with this new codeshare agreement, maintaining and enhancing our competitive offer to customers.

"Qatar Airways is expanding rapidly across the world and the agreement with SUN-AIR further strengthens our position, whilst providing our passengers with an unrivalled global network.”

SUN-AIR’s commercial director, Kristian Tvergaard, added: ”We are honoured to be able to add the Qatar Airways code on our flights and in this way offer unique connections for our customers between our three bases in Jutland - Billund, Aarhus and Aalborg - and the Qatar Airways hub in Doha.”
