Australians, prepare to travel even further.

Qantas and Sri Lankan Airlines have announced they will codeshare on six new destinations, opening up more possibilities for Aussie travellers on both airlines.

Commencing 18 December, Sri Lankan Airlines will adopt the QF code on its Colombo to Bangkok route, which operates three times daily, as well as its Colombo to Hong Kong route, which operates five times weekly.

For Aussies, this offers the chance to country-hop on the Qantas brand, hopping into Colombo and beyond on the flying kangaroo.

On the flip side, Qantas will adopt the UL code on its Melbourne to Sydney, Melbourne to Brisbane, Melbourne to Adelaide and Melbourne to Auckland routes.

This announcement comes less than a month after Sri Lankan Airlines recommenced daily, direct flights between Colombo and Melbourne enabling seamless connections between Colombo and Australia and New Zealand's major cities.

Being oneworld points partners, SriLankan Airlines flights are already eligible to earn Qantas points and status credits and are eligible for classic flights rewards, though not for points plus pay flights. Passengers also reap the benefits of lounge access across both airlines.

Flights are available to book now through the Qantas and Sri Lankan Airlines websites.
