NEW DELHI: Jet Airways on Thursday announced code sharing agreement with Kenya's national carrier Kenya Airways that will enable passengers to travel on each other's flights.
Jet Airways does not have a direct flight from Mumbai to Nairobi so this agreement would enable passengers to travel there on Kenya Airways flights on a Jet ticket and vice versa.
"Effective today, these flights are open for sale, and for travel, effective July 22, 2010," Jet Airways said in a statement.
"In addition to our direct service to Johannesburg, there is significant demand from our customers to travel to Kenya and beyond. We are confident that this partnership will translate into greater air traffic between India and Africa," Jet Airways CEO Nikos Kardassis said.
The two carriers have also entered into network-wide frequent flyer partnership, which will be effective from July 22, 2010.
Commenting on the partnership, Kenya Airways group managing director and CEO Dr Titus Naikuni said: " Our association with Jet Airways gives us an opportunity to offer our customers a seamless connection to more destinations in the Indian sub-continent."
Jet Airways currently operates on 66 international routes including New York, Brussels, London & Johannesburg among others.
