This will allow Qantas and Emirates frequent flyers to earn miles and points on each other's networks.

The authorisation has been granted by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission with a condition, that the two airlines must maintain their current number of weekly flights across the Tasman.

Emirates and Qantas flights will appear on each others timetables and carry both an EK and QF flight number.
