Jet Airways has expanded its codeshare agreement with South African Airways (SAA).

With immediate effect, passengers will be able to book through Jet for SAA’s services from Abu Dhabi to Johannesburg, and then onwards to Cape Town and Durban.

In turn, SAA’s passengers will be able to travel onwards from Abu Dhabi to Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru, Chennai and Hyderabad, using Jet’s flights.

“We are delighted to expand our codeshare with South African Airways, enabling guests to enjoy seamless connectivity to several destinations in India and South Africa via Abu Dhabi,” said Raj Sivakumar, chief commercial officer of Jet Airways.

“This enhanced partnership is a further demonstration of Jet Airways’ strong network that offers an unmatched connectivity between India and the rest of the world. We are confident that our partnership with South African Airways will further stimulate business and tourism between India and South Africa.”

The move is aimed at re-establishing links between India and South Africa, following the suspension of direct flights between Mumbai and Jo’burg earlier this year. All routes are now operated via Abu Dhabi.

“This partnership enforces the historic commercial, political and cultural cooperation between South Africa and India, following the termination of SAA’s direct flights between South Africa and India,” said Sylvain Bosc, SAA’s chief commercial officer.
