Dhaka: Jet Airways has signed a new agreement that will allow Indian passengers to connect to Mexico.
The Mumbai-based airline has penned a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Aeromexico that will enable codeshare flights between India and Mexico, via London.
Initially, Jet will place its ‘9W’ flight code on Aeromexico’s flights between London Heathrow and Mexico City, while Aeromexico will place its ‘AM’ code on Jet’s services from Heathrow to Mumbai and Delhi. Reciprocal frequent flyer benefits will be offered on all the sectors.
The deal was signed by Jet’s chairman, Naresh Goyal, and Aeromexico’s CEO. Andrés Conesa, during the recent IATA Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Cancun, which was hosted by the Mexican carrier.
“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,” said Goyal. “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,” he added.
The codeshare flights will open for sale and travel later this year, and the arrangement could be expanded to other European transit points in future.
