Private carrier Jet Airways has entered into codeshare agreement with Singapore-based low- fares airline Jetstar Asia for flights from the city-state. Following the tie-up, travellers can now fly from India to Singapore on a Jet Airways plane and onward to Hong Kong or Bangkok on a Jetstar Asia flight. Passengers can also return to India on Jet Airways directly from Hong Kong or Bangkok, all on a single itinerary.
Codesharing allows an airline to book its passengers on its partner carriers and provide seamless travel to destinations where it has no presence. As per the agreement, Jet Airways will place its marketing code ‘9W’ on Jetstar Asia flights operating from Singapore to 11 destinations across Asia Pacific region.
Jet Airways is India’s premier international airline which operates flights to 67 destinations, including India and overseas. The company’s robust domestic India network spans the length and breadth of the country covering metro cities, state capitals and emerging destinations.
