Jet Airways, India’s premier international airline, has increased the number of codeshare flights it offers with strategic partner, Etihad Airways, to include new destinations in North America, Europe and Australia. The development will see Jet Airways placing its 9W code on Etihad Airways’ services from Abu Dhabi to San Francisco (SFO), Dallas / Fort Worth (DFW) and Los Angeles (LAX) in the United States.
These new codeshares complement the existing ones on Etihad Airways’ flights to New York (JFK), Chicago (ORD) and Washington DC (IAD). The expansion of codeshare options also includes Etihad Airways’ forthcoming flight to Edinburgh (EDI) as well as established routes to Zurich (ZRH) and Perth (PER). Jet Airways will also place its 9W code on flights between Abu Dhabi and Jaipur and Kolkata. In return Etihad Airways will place its EY code on Jet Airways’ flights from Ahmedabad to Abu Dhabi.
Jet Airways currently operates a fleet of 116 aircraft, which include a mix of Boeing 777-300 ERs/Airbus A330-200/300 aircraft, Next Generation Boeing 737s and ATR 72-500/600s.
