Jet Airways and Aeromexico sign codeshare MoU
As part of the arrangement, both carriers will code on each other’s services between India and Mexico via common gates in Europe (London Heathrow, Paris Charles De Gaulle and Amsterdam). To begin with, Jet Airways will place its marketing code “9W” on Aeromexico flights from London Heathrow to Mexico City. In turn, Aeromexico will place its marketing code on Jet Airways’ direct services from London Heathrow to Mumbai and Delhi.
The codeshare partnership will offer guests enhanced connectivity and seamless access to the combined networks of both airlines, with convenient connections via Jet Airways’ European gateways.
Naresh Goyal, chairman, Jet Airways, said, “We are confident that this new codeshare partnership will stimulate the demand for business and tourist travel between India and Mexico.”
Andres Conesa, CEO of Aeromexico added, “It is a great pleasure for us to settle this code share 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”.
This comprehensive MoU signed between the two carriers, also includes cooperation in the area of reciprocal Frequent Flyer benefits for members.
The initial codeshare flights via London Heathrow will open for sale as well as travel later this year, subject to government approvals. Flight tickets under the codeshare agreement can be purchased via preferred travel agents or through the two airlines’ sales offices, websites and call centers.
