It is not know which flights of Jet from India to Abu Dhabi will connect to the newly code-shared flights. Jet Airways did not respond to our request for information, till the time of publishing this story.
The codeshare to Paris is in addition to the existing codeshare between Jet Airways and Etihad Airways on the Abu Dhabi Mumbai and Delhi routes operated by Jet Airways, and the Abu Dhabi Mumbai / Delhi / Cochin / Thiruvananthapuram / Kozhikode / Chennai / Hyderabad routes operated by Etihad.
