Jet Airways, India's premier international airline, and Jetstar Asia, Singapore-based low-fares carrier, today announced a codeshare agreement for flights from Singapore.

Under this agreement, Jet Airways (Q,N,C,F)* will place its marketing code '9W' on Jetstar Asia flights operating from Singapore to 11 destinations across in the Asia Pacific region: Bangkok and Phuket in Thailand, Perth and Darwin in Australia, Jakarta, Denpasar Bali and Surabaya in Indonesia, Ho-Chi-Minh City in Vietnam, Kuala Lumpur and Penang in Malaysia and Hong Kong.

With this codeshare, Jet Airways will extend its codeshare foot-print to three brand new destinations: Darwin, Phuket and Penang.

Phuket and Penang are well-known global tourist hotspots, famous for their beaches and food, while Darwin is now an increasing feature in the itineraries of Indian travellers seeking newer leisure destinations. Situated at the northernmost tip of Australia, Darwin is quite literally, the stepping stone into the continent. Named after the famous British evolutionist - Charles Darwin, in addition to its rich iconic past traversing over 150 years, it also offers an ecologically diverse backyard for the nature enthusiast.

The codeshare will allow Jet Airways to offer seamless travel options to its guests from its ever-expanding and convenient bouquet of business and leisure destinations.

Most importantly, the latest codeshare will not only strengthen traffic flows via   Singapore, but will also offer guests the advantage of twin/ tri-city itineraries options through Singapore, either via Bangkok or Hong Kong, owing to codeshares on both sectors. This will make a guest's travel experience even more seamless and convenient, since one can now fly from India to Singapore with Jet Airways, and onward to Hong Kong or Bangkok on a codeshared Jetstar Asia flight, returning to India on Jet Airways directly from Hong Kong or Bangkok, all on a single itinerary.

Jayaraj Shanmugam, Chief Commercial Officer, Jet Airways, said, "Jetstar Asia flies to some of the most popular leisure and business destinations across the Asia Pacific. With this codeshare agreement, our guests will now be able to conveniently tap into this extensive network to explore new and exotic destinations across Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Hong Kong and Australia via Singapore.
Jet Airways' guests from India travelling from Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai or Bengaluru to Singapore can seamlessly connect onto Jetstar Asia's network to travel beyond Singapore. This once again reinforces our core network strategy of connectivity, choice, convenience and comfort."

Shares of the company declined Rs 5.35, or 1.12%, to trade at Rs 471.55. The total volume of shares traded was 289,767 at the BSE (3.14 p.m., Monday).
