Travel between India and Fiji will soon become easier, following the signing of a new codeshare agreement between Jet Airways and Fiji Airways.
The new partnership enables passengers to book single-ticket travel between India and Fiji, via Singapore and Hong Kong.
India’s Jet Airways will place its 9W code on Fiji Airways’ flights from Singapore and Hong Kong to Nadi, while Fiji Airways will place its FJ code on Jet’s services between Singapore and Mumbai, Delhi and Chennai, as well as between Hong Kong and Mumbai and Delhi. Passengers will be able to earn frequent flyer miles on all bookings.
“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,” said Andre Viljoen, Fiji Airways’ managing director & CEO.
Gaurang Shetty, Jet’s whole-time director, commented; “Ties between the people of India and Fiji can be traced back over a 100 years and with the governments of both countries making focused efforts to further strengthen trade, tourism and cultural ties, we believe this codeshare partnership will play a pivotal role in these endeavours by enabling seamless connectivity between both countries.”
Bookings for the codeshare flights are now open for sale for travel effective 9 March 2017.
