Jet Airways and All Nippon Airways Extend the Codeshare Pact

India’s private airline, Jet Airways and Japanese carrier, All Nippon Airways are looking to strengthen their mutual alliance by expanding their codeshare agreement! The two carriers have extended their pact by providing flights to more destinations between India and Japan. The code-share has been extended with immediate effect and is now open for sale and travel.

This development is sure to please tickets holders on both airlines as they will now be able to get seamless connections between Tokyo and Osaka to various destinations across India on connecting flights operated by the two carriers.

Apart from the existing pact on ANA direct flights on Mumbai –Tokyo sector, Jet will also place its marketing code on ANA flights on Hong Kong – Tokyo/Osaka and Bangkok – Tokyo routes.

Likewise, ANA will place its code on Jet operated Hong Kong- Mumbai/Delhi, Bangkok-Mumbai/Delhi/Kolkata, Singapore- Mumbai/Delhi/Chennai route and also on the domestic routes between Mumbai and Delhi/Chennai/Kolkata.

The expansion of the agreement is sure to bring manifold rewards for tickets seekers in the form of reciprocal frequent-flyer program benefits. JetPrivilege members may now earn reward points when buying tickets to hop on Jet’s codeshare flights from India to Japan.

It is believed that the carriers have extended their agreement in an endeavour to tap the already soaring number of tickets buyers on the India-Japan route. The number of passenger who spent on tickets to travel between the two countries in 2009 was 335,000 which increased to 465,000 in 2011 recording a total growth of around 39 %.
