Qatar and United seal code share agreement

Qatar Airways and United Airlines have completed their code share agreement following approval from the US Department of Transportation.

Under the agreement, Qatar Airways significantly expands its presence in the US, a market it entered in June with scheduled flights from Doha to New York Newark.

In July, it added daily non-stop scheduled services to Washington DC.

Qatar Airways’ QR flight code is now on selected services operated by United, giving Qatar access to a number of US domestic cities from Washington DC, and on flights from key European gateways to the US.

United’s UA flight code is on Qatar's flights between Doha and Washington DC and Newark, as well as a number of routes operated by Qatar Airways across its network from the Qatari capital.

Qatar and United joined together on their frequent flyer schemes in November 2005.
