United Airlines, Jet Airways Announce Codeshare and Frequent Flyer Partnership

CHICAGO, May 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- East meets West -- and 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.

"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," says Michael Whitaker, United's senior vice president -- Alliances, International and Regulatory Affairs. "Our business travelers will particularly enjoy service to one of the fastest growing regions and business markets in the world."

The carriers today filed the codeshare agreement with the Department of Transportation, and, pending government approval, it is expected to begin around November 1. United customers will have service to 13 cities in India, including Bangalore, Kolkatta, Mumbai, and New Delhi. Jet Airways customers may travel to United's five hubs, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Washington, as well as more than 20 other cities across the United States.

= In case you have not noticed, 9W plays its own game with partnerships ... sort of the EK model.

UAL MP members finally have something to cheer about ... after all the recent "enhancements".

Yep, strange one that one. UA has had a strained relationship in the past with AI. Does this really help heal the wounds?
God knows the theory on this one.

Has anyone heard if Jet is going to keep both the AA and UA partnership at this point, or is AA on the way out?

9W also has code share agreements with Air Canada, so, if I was to guess it would appear that AA is on the way out and 9W is focusing on *A partnerships. Personally I feel 9W add more benefits to *A as opposed to AI.

Does anyone know which 13 cities in India are covered by the agreement (besides the ones mentioned in the article)? Also, does LH have an agreement with 9W?

9W is a Partner of Miles&More. LH does not have a code share agreement with 9W, though

Does this mean someone could fly India-HKG on Jet, and then fly HKG-LAX/SFO(UA hubs) on United?

It is not enough to be rude; one must also be incorrect.

Looks like they'll probably have to look for another terminal then.. stirthepot

Thanks. This does open up many routes with India-HKG on Jet, and HKG-USA on UA. It remains to be seen if the transit times at HKG are kept short.

As for BRU, UA flies IAD-BRU which connects well with BRU-BOM/DEL/MAA flights in both directions, with transit period of around 4 hours at BRU. This will increase Jet's(and UA's) one-stop India-BRU-USA flights to 12 from the current 9. Doesn't Jet also codeshare with AA on ORD-BRU? If yes, then Jet will soon have 15 India-BRU-USA flights.

Perhaps Jet doesn't need to join any alliance yet if they can stitch up codeshare/FF partnerships with individual airlines on specific routes.

= How do you extrapolate that? 9W also recently signed up with CX and has a pretty successful alliance with QF. I do not think signing up with UAL necessarily means an end to their AA partnership.

The bilateral codesharing and related cooperation is "where the money is" in the first place. The "global" alliances of SkyTeam, Star, and oneworld are often vastly overstated with respect to their economic utility to an individual airline -- at the end of the day, they're just fancy marketing gimmicks of convenience.



Live life to the fullest.

No they don't.

A bit out of the picture but it will be interesting to see what the implications may be as far as SN is concerned. SN has a relationship with AA but has been rumored to be in the takeover pipe at LH, getting closer to UA instead would then make a lot of sense. Interesting times ahead.

Thanks. Well, in that case BLR(or AMD)-ORD should be on top of Jet's list when they have additional equipment. It remains to be seen if they would continue to expand the BRU hub with their own metal.
