Jet Airways expands code-share with Etihad

Jet Airways expands code-share with Etihad Mumbai: Private carrier Jet Airways on Tuesday said it has expanded its code-share agreement with Etihad Airways for the Abu Dhabi-Paris route.

This is in addition to the existing code-share between the two carriers, Jet Airways said in a release.

The two airlines already have a similar arrangement for Abu Dhabi-Mumbai/Delhi routes operated by Jet Airways, and the flights originating from Abu Dhabi for Mumbai, Delhi, Cochin, Thiruvananthapuram, Kozhikode, Chennai and Hyderabad operated by Etihad.

Code-sharing allows an airline to book its passengers on its partner carriers and provide seamless transport to multiple destinations where it has no presence.

As a part of the arrangement, Jet Airways will place its code on Etihad's flight operating out of Abu Dhabi to Paris Charles de-Gaulle airport with effect from December 10, it said.

In addition, the airline's JetPrivilege members (carrier's customer loyalty programme) will earn JPMiles for their entire journey when they fly on Jet Airways codeshare flights from India to Paris, the release said.
