Novosibirsk, Russia, 2017-Nov-27 — /Travel PR News/ — S7 Airlines, a oneworld® global airline alliance member, announces that the terms and conditions of the code-share agreement with Qatar Airways, its partner airline, have been extended. In accordance with the arrangements, the airlines will carry out joint flights to Australia, countries of Asia and Africa.

Under the agreement, the passengers now have the opportunity to travel to the cities of southern Australia — Sydney, Adelaide and Perth — on joint flights of S7 Airlines and Qatar Airways. Flights are carried out with a connection at the international airport of Doha (Qatar).
