Jet Airways Permitted to Code-Share with Five Airlines

One of India’s leading airlines, Jet Airways may expand its global network across the world as the aviation ministry of India has permitted it to enter code-share with five airlines - American Airlines, Malaysian, Garuda of Indonesia, Vietnam Airlines and Kenya Airways. This will make it the biggest Indian carrier to in terms of global connectivity, offering vast choices on tickets aboard flights to fliers.

A code-share facilitates merging of two or more carriers, allowing them boost global connectivity. Travellers can reserve tickets with one airline and take flights operated by another one. Travel experts hold it as the “biggest permissions given to an Indian airline for code-share in a go, and will be a big boost for Jet.”

The approval by the authorities is going to be another bonus for global travellers who reserve tickets with the operator. They can not only draw advantage of superlative in-flight products and welcoming cabin crew, but also the wide network across the world. 
Jet Airways is also mulling to sign a pact with UAE based Etihad in an attempt to boost its network across Gulf and worldwide regions. The deal would mean the carrier operates flights between 23 cities of India and Abu Dhabi, the capital of UAE. It is also going to provide tickets on flights to several regions in the US including non-stop flights to San Francisco, Gulf, East Africa and Europe. The additional services will offer numerous alternatives to fliers who seek tickets to fly from India to US, Europe, East Africa and various destinations across the globe.
