Jet Airways expands code share pact with Air France

Tags: News
Private carrier Jet Airways today said it has expanded its code share pact with Air France signed last June, which will enable passengers of both airlines seamless travel across destinations.

The expanded agreement provides for enhanced network connectivity to passengers to 12 major cities across Europe and the United Kingdom, Jet Airways said in a release.

Code share is a commercial agreement between two or more airlines that share the same flight, with all partners able to sell seats on that flight.

With the expanded pact, Jet Airways passengers will now have seamless connectivity to Nice, Lyon, Marseille and Toulouse in France, Barcelona and Madrid in Spain, Hamburg in Germany, Prague in the Czech Republic, Dublin in Ireland and Birmingham, Manchester and Newcastle in the UK, it said.

Currently, Air France places its marketing code on Jet Airways' domestic routes between Mumbai, Delhi and Bengaluru to Chennai, Hyderabad and Kolkata.

The new code share flights are open for sale from tomorrow and will be available for travel from May 14, the release said.

"With the commencement of our Mumbai-Paris operations on May 14, Jet Airways will now be placing its marketing code on Air France-operated flights beyond Paris," the release said.

"We will be able to offer our guests wider access, unmatched connectivity and seamless travel to key markets across Europe with France's premium airline," Jet Airways senior vice president for commercial Gaurang Shetty said.

Jet Airways is now granted access to European cities they currently do not serve and the airline is confident that this extension will be successful in the fast-growing market between India and Europe, Air France-KLM senior VP for Middle East, Gulf and India, Tjalling Smit said.
