Canada Jetlines is in talks with Qatar Airways Group to explore a "potential collaboration" between the two airlines, the Canadian carrier said in a press release on Thursday (March 16).
Subject to all regulatory approvals, the parties are discussing the possibility of including non-stop flights between Toronto-Pearson and Doha, which is where Qatar Airways is based.
This would offer Canadian travellers access to Qatar Airways' unparalleled network via Doha to destinations in the Middle East, Africa, Indian Subcontinent and across Asia.
"We are pleased to discuss potential opportunities with Qatar Airways, an international airline known for its world-class service and consistently recognized by the industry and consumers as the best airline in the world," stated Eddy Doyle, president & CEO of Canada Jetlines. "Qatar is not only a growing and exciting destination, it is also home to the world's best airport, Hamad International Airport, which provides seamless connectivity to Qatar Airways' superior global network.”
Qatar Airways was recently named 'Airline of the Year' for an unprecedented seventh time at the 2022 World Airline Awards, presented by international aviation ratings organization Skytrax.
It was also named 'World's Best Business Class', 'World's Best Business Class Lounge Dining' and 'Best Airline in the Middle East'.
Qatar Airways currently flies to more than 150 destinations worldwide via its hub in Doha, Hamad International Airport, which was named "Best Airport in the World" for the second year in a row at the 2022 Skytrax World Airport Awards.
