Qantas has applied to the International Air Services Commission (IASC) requesting for the allocation of seats and codesharing rights on several routes.

The carrier is seeking to codeshare with Emirates on services between Australia and France from 31 March, requesting for 250 daily one-way seats.

The Australian carrier is also requesting IASC approval for Emirates to codeshare on its services to the UK, United Arab Emirates, Singapore and Thailand from 31 March.

Under these applications, the airline is seeking for unlimited capacity and frequencies for services to the UK and Singapore, an allocation of 14 weekly frequencies on the UAE route, and seven weekly services on the Thailand route.

In addition, Qantas has also requested for an allocation of 400 weekly seats on the Italy route for codesharing with Emirates. This includes allowing Qantas to codeshare on Emirates' Dubai-Rome service.

The IASC has also reallocated Qantas 629 weekly seats in each direction on the Philippines route.

Separately, the IASC has approved Delta Air Lines and Etihad Airways to codeshare on Virgin Australia's international services.
