Jetstar Asia codeshare gives Jet Airways three new destinations
Singapore, Bangkok and Hong Kong, March 21, 2017
Jet Airways will begin codesharing on Jetstar Asia flights from Singapore to 11 destinations, extending its footprint to three new destinations: Darwin, Phuket and Penang. Sales lines open tomorrow for travel commencing from March 26.
The Indian airline will place its marketing code ‘9W’ on Jetstar Asia flights to Bangkok and Phuket in Thailand, Perth and Darwin in Australia, Jakarta, Denpasar Bali and Surabaya in Indonesia, Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, Kuala Lumpur and Penang in Malaysia, and Hong Kong.
With this, Jet Airways will also offer guests twin/tri-city itineraries options through Singapore, either via Bangkok or Hong Kong. Passengers transiting through Singapore will enjoy baggage check-in transfer and receive onward boarding passes at the initial departure point.
As well, JetPrivilege members will be able to accrue JPMiles, which will count towards tier status, on the codeshare flights.
Jetstar Asia said the codeshare will allow it to participate in the high growth traffic trends between India and the codeshare markets which have demonstrated a CAGR of over 17 per cent over the last five years in Asia-Pacific.
