Jet Airways on Wednesday said it has further expanded its codeshare agreement with South African Airways – the national carrier as well as the largest airline of South Africa.
In a statement, the company said customers can book tickets as well as travel across the combined networks of both the airlines with immediate effect.
Through the codeshare arrangement, Jet Airways places its marketing code on South African Airways’ flights from Abu Dhabi to Johannesburg and beyond to Cape Town and Durban. In turn, South African Airways is placing its marketing code on Jet Airways’ services between Abu Dhabi and Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru, Chennai and Hyderabad.
“We are confident that our partnership with South African Airways (SAA) will further stimulate business and tourism between India and South Africa,” said Jet’s chief commercial officer Raj Sivakumar.
“This partnership enforces the historic commercial, political and cultural cooperation between South Africa and India, following the termination of SAA’s direct flights between South Africa and India. There is substantial potential for trade growth between our two countries and our planned partnership aims to facilitate that growth,” said his African carrier counterpart Sylvain Bosc.
Jet Airways is a member airline of Etihad Airways Partners.
