INDIA’S full-service premier international airline Jet Airways and Fiji’s national airline Fiji Airways yesterday announced a codeshare partnership which offers guests travelling on both carriers convenient and seamless connectivity between India and Fiji via Singapore and Hong Kong.
The codeshare agreement, a first of its kind between the airlines of the two countries will address the growing demand for travel between India and Fiji.
Jet Airways will place its 9W code on Fiji Airways flights from Singapore and Hong Kong to Nadi and Fiji Airways will place its FJ code on Jet Airways services between Singapore and Mumbai, Delhi and Chennai as well as between Hong Kong and Mumbai and Delhi.
All codeshare flights will allow through check-in to the final destination of any journey.
JetPriviledge members will also be able to accrue and redeem JPMiles on the codeshare flights operated by Fiji Airways flights and the accrued miles will count towards their tier status as well.
Codeshare bookings are now open for sale for travel effective on March 9, 2017.
Fiji Airways Managing Director and CEO Andre Vilijoen said this is a very significant achievement for both airlines.
“Demand for travel from Fiji to India for tourism, medical treatment, education and family reasons keeps growing and our codeshare agreement will boost this even further,” Mr Vilijoen said.
“And with our convenient Hong Kong and Singapore services, which connect with JetAirways flights, we look forward to welcoming more Indian travelers to our home Fiji – one of the most sought after tourist destinations in the world,” he added.
