Another day, another airline alliance for Qantas. The carrier has entered an agreement with Europe’s KLM that’ll make it easier and more relaxing for Aussies to fly to Amsterdam.

The new alliance commencing November 2018, will see Qantas add its QF code on KLM’s daily flights between Singapore and Amsterdam, allowing Aussies to fly from Australia to the European hot spot under a single Qantas flight number.

As part of the relationship, the Flying Kangaroo’s loyalty members will also be able to earn full Qantas points and status credits on the codeshare service, PLUS Business Class passengers as well as Platinum and Gold FF members will be able to access KLM’s lounge in Amsterdam, Australian Business Traveller reported.

The two airlines are also working together to “explore different redemption opportunities on codeshare flights” such as using FF points to upgrade on each other’s flights, Qantas said.

Aussies flying on KLM’s codeshare service with Qantas to Amsterdam will find themselves in a Boeing 777-300ER featuring 34 lie-flat seats in Business Class. Click here for more information on the service.


The Australian carrier’s new relationship with KLM follows on from recent alliances with Cathay Pacific, Air New Zealand and Air France.
