Qantas is expanding its codeshare with IndiGo so that passengers have more flight options when travelling between Australia and India.
Qantas and IndiGo have been partners since August of last year, when the two companies launched the first phase of their codeshare agreement, allowing passengers to easily transfer from Qantas flights in Bengaluru and Delhi to IndiGo services to other major Indian cities like Mumbai and Chennai, as well as smaller destinations like Pune and Goa.
Qantas passengers may now connect in Delhi and Bengaluru to fly to eight more locations throughout India as part of the expanded partnership. Additionally, over 250 flights within IndiGo’s domestic network would be available to Qantas passengers.
Connecting flights on IndiGo (using the QF code) allows Qantas frequent flyers to earn and redeem points, and IndiGo honours the advantages of Qantas frequent flyer tiers (Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Platinum One) for things like priority check-in and priority luggage.
Qantas passengers on an IndiGo trip from Australia may take the same number of luggage as they did on their outbound journey, in addition to receiving free meals and beverages.
According to Markus Svensson, Qantas’ chief customer officer, the airline’s new flights to India have been met with overwhelming demand.
“Our codeshare with indigo has enhanced the way our customers fly between Australia and India, and the new destinations offer even more choice to our customers.”
Because of the new codeshare flights, our clients will have additional options for making connections inside India from the airports in Delhi and Bengaluru. Their bags may be checked through to their final destination.
Our frequent flyers gain the most from booking these flights since they have more opportunity to earn points and status credits.”

Existing codeshare destinations:
Qantas customers may fly from Bengaluru and Delhi to 21 Indian destinations.
Qantas travellers may now book more than 250 more flights, and access to the domestic IndiGo network is more flexible.
It can be challenging to switch from an international to a domestic flight, but Qantas and IndiGo have anticipated and simplified the process. Qantas customers travelling on IndiGo may bring the same amount of luggage they did on their journey from Australia and enjoy complimentary food and refreshments.
Qantas operates four return flights from Melbourne to Delhi per week and four from Sydney to Bengaluru per week.
