Jet Airways, a leading international airline, and Emirates Airline, an award-winning international carrier, have announced a partnership.
The two airlines are launching a reciprocal frequent-flyer arrangement whereby members of Jet Airways’ Jet Privilege, India’s largest frequent-flyer program, may earn and redeem miles across Emirates’ rapidly expanding international network, with the exception of flights between India and Dubai. Members of Emirates’ Skywards program may also earn and redeem miles on all Jet Airways flights operating within India.
Emirates will also commence a unilateral code share on Jet Airways’ daily flights from Mumbai and New Delhi to and from Dubai – offering passengers enhanced connectivity and a range of services between India and Dubai. Jet Airways operates daily services on the Mumbai/New Delhi – Dubai sectors aboard its state-of-the-art Airbus A330-200 and B737-800 aircraft respectively, with a two-class configuration: Premiere (Business) and Economy.
According to Wolfgang Prock-Schauer, CEO of Jet Airways: “Dubai is an important market for Jet Airways and there is significant demand from our customers to travel to and beyond Dubai. We are delighted to be able to get this exciting new agreement up and running quickly for the benefit of our customers.”
