''The codershare, to be effective from February 28, will also enable passengers to fly with greater convenience and flexibility between India and Canada, not only through our Brussels hub but also via London,'' Jet CEO Wolfgang Prock-Schauer says in a press release. With this partnership, passengers can fly between Mumbai and London Heathrow on Jet Airways operated flights continuing to and from Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Montreal, and Edmonton on flights operated by Air Canada.
The arrangement also includes Jet Airways' operated flights from Chennai to Toronto, which will be operated in codeshare with Air Canada.
Additionally, passengers will enjoy frequent flyer benefits on codeshared routes on accrual basis as well as seamless transfers with through check-in and interline e-ticketing.
Both Jet Airways and Air Canada will now be able to leverage their strengths and leadership positions to better serve the existing and tap the growing passenger traffic between the two countries, Mr Prock-Schauer says.
