Qantas has boosted its North American network through new codeshare services with American Airlines, Alaska Airlines and Westjet.

The new codeshares come into place for travel after October 25 and cover about 40 routes to the US, Canada and Mexico, Qantas said on Friday.

They include flights from San Francisco, which Qantas is resuming service to from Sydney in December, to cities such as Charlotte, Seattle, Philadelphia, Portland and Palm Springs.

“With the launch of our nonstop flights to San Francisco later this year, we’ve identified an opportunity to position this port as another key US hub for Qantas customers by extending the codeshares we already have in place,” Qantas International chief executive Gareth Evans said in a statement.

“Our frequent flyers in particular will benefit from booking on the Qantas code, with increased opportunities to earn points and status credits.”

There are also codeshare flights on American from Los Angeles to Mexico City, Guadalajara and San Jose de Cabo in Mexico, as well as 25 city-pairs in Canada on Westjet flights from Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto.

It is the second codeshare agreement Qantas has signed this week, following the announcement it would add its code on Solomon Airlines’ four flights a week from Brisbane and once a week service from Sydney to Honiara.
