BA parent group in talks with Qatar Airways over Asia

Qatar Airways is in talks with the parent company of British Airways over a possible partnership focused on Asia, the Financial Times has reported. One person familiar with the International Airlines Group told the daily the firm had held discussions with three airlines, including Qatar Airways, about the possibility of a partnership focused on Asia, where air travel in countries such as China is growing faster than in Europe and the US. No final decision has been taken, added this person. The negotiations come after British Airways and Qantas confirmed on Thursday that they were terminating their joint venture on routes between the UK and Australia in March, after the Australian carrier announced plans for a partnership with Emirates Airline.
