Qantas plans to broaden the number of destinations it flies to in Asia as part of its new alliance with Emirates.

The Australian carrier on Monday outlined its new four-phase strategy for the Asian market.

The new destinations being considered include Beijing, Seoul, Mumbai, Delhi and Tokyo-Handeda.

Qantas also plans to provide more frequent flights to Singapore and Hong Kong, as well as change the time of those flights and increase capacity on those routes.

The airline says it hopes to expand its network within Asia by working with local partners such as Japan Airlines, China Eastern, Jet Airways, Cathay Pacific and Malaysia Airlines.
