Emirates and Jet Airways Joins as Code Share

Dubai, 11th Dec. 2008 Emirates Airline, with its extensive services to India, and Jet Airways, have announced their partnership plans spanning a unilateral code share agreement and a reciprocal frequent flyer arrangement.

Effective 15th December, Emirates will unilaterally code share on Jet Airways’ daily flights from Mumbai and New Delhi to Dubai, giving travellers better connectivity and an expanded range of services between India and Dubai.

Emirates’ customers will have the option to travel on its four daily flights, as well as on Jet Airways’ daily service between Mumbai and Dubai. Likewise on the New Delhi-Dubai sector, Emirates will offer its customers the choice of 25 flights per week on its aircraft and an additional seven flights per week on Jet Airways. Jet Airways’ flights on these sectors will be identified with its ‘9W’ code as well as with the Emirates ‘EK’ code.

The two airlines have also launched a reciprocal frequent flyer arrangement that allows members of Emirates’ Skywards programme to earn and redeem miles on Jet Airways flights operating within India. Members of Jet Airways’ JetPrivilege programme will be able to earn and redeem miles across Emirates’ rapidly-expanding international network, with the exception of flights between India and Dubai.
