Customers from United Airlines and Jet Airways will benefit through an agreement signed by both carriers. The companies plan to offer codeshare service, significantly expanding the number of flights available to customers of both carriers to travel between the U.S. and India.
United’s Mileage Plus® and Jet Airways’ JetPrivilege members would also have the opportunity to accrue and redeem frequent flyer miles on most flights.
Michael Whitaker, United’s senior vice president – Alliances, International and Regulatory Affairs, said, “Whether our customers are traveling east or west, our new partnership with Jet Airways will provide 18 more flight options that will make international travel more convenient. Our business travelers will particularly enjoy service to one of the fastest growing regions and business markets in the world.”
