Business Traveller (India) - - UPFRONT -

In­dia’s full-ser­vice air­line, Jet Air­ways and Mex­ico’s flag car­rier, Aeromex­ico have signed a Me­moran­dum of Un­der­stand­ing (MoU) that in­cludes codeshare flights and “re­cip­ro­cal Fre­quent Flyer ben­e­fits for mem­bers”.

The MoU de­tails codes on each other’s ser­vices be­tween In­dia and Mex­ico via Lon­don Heathrow, Paris Charles de Gaulle and Am­s­ter­dam Air­port Schiphol.

The codeshare flights will launch later this year via Lon­don Heathrow. Dates haven’t been an­nounced yet.

Jet Air­ways will place its code“9W”on Aeromex­ico flights from com­mon gates in Europe to Mex­ico City. Aeromex­ico will place its code“AM”on Jet Air­ways flights from com­mon gates in Europe to Mum­bai and New Delhi.

Pas­sen­gers of both air­lines will en­joy on­ward con­nec­tions to other In­dian and Mex­i­can cities. They will also have a wider choice of des­ti­na­tions ac­ces­si­ble to them on a sin­gle ticket, through the codeshare agree­ment.

Speak­ing at the MoU sign­ing cer­e­mony, Naresh Goyal, the chair­man of Jet Air­ways, said,“We are de­lighted to an­nounce our part­ner­ship with Aeromex­ico, which will sig­nif­i­cantly en­hance the in­ter­na­tional reach of both air­lines bring­ing in­creased ben­e­fits to all our guests. We are con­fi­dent that this new codeshare part­ner­ship will stim­u­late the de­mand for busi­ness and tourist travel be­tween In­dia and Mex­ico. The new re­la­tion­ship be­tween Jet Air­ways and Aeromex­ico il­lus­trates our com­mit­ment as well as strate­gic ef­forts to con­tin­u­ously strengthen our net­work, con­nect­ing In­dia with the rest of the world as well as pro­vid­ing op­por­tu­nity and con­ve­nience to our guests who can now connect to Mex­ico from In­dia via our Euro­pean gate­ways and vice versa.”

An­dres Conesa, the CEO of Aeromex­ico added,“It is a great plea­sure for us to set­tle this codeshare part­ner­ship with Jet Air­ways that will build new bridges and connect Mex­ico to In­dia more eas­ily. This achieve­ment is a man­i­fest of our will to con­tin­u­ously of­fer new flight des­ti­na­tions to our pas­sen­gers. Also, by con­nect­ing with an im­por­tant coun­try as In­dia, Aeromex­ico cre­ates new cul­tural bonds and tourism ex­change be­tween both na­tions.”

Flight tick­ets un­der the agree­ment will open for sale later this year and can be pur­chased through the two air­lines’ sales of­fices, web­sites and call cen­tres. je­tair­ways.com
