Jet Airways, in partnership with Brussels Airlines, will now offer seamless travel to its customers from India to Birmingham and Madrid via its hub in Brussels.
Effective December 06, 2007, the code-share arrangement, which is currently applicable on Jet Airways operated flights from Mumbai, Delhi and Chennai to Brussels, will be extended to connecting Brussels Airlines operated services to Birmingham and Madrid.
This code-share partnership will be expanded shortly to other European cities, such as Paris, Lyon, Vienna, and Berlin via Jet Airways hub in Brussels.
Jet Airways' chief executive officer, Wolfgang Prock-Schauer said, ''As the leading airlines of India and Belgium, our partnership will combine excellent service with world-class operations thus supporting our strategy of international growth. This mutually rewarding partnership will deliver several benefits to our customers such as a wider choice of destinations with excellent connections, frequent flyer benefits, seamless transfer and interline e-ticketing all of which we anticipate, will result in increased traffic and revenue opportunities.''
Not only is Brussels the capital of the European Union, its physical location combined with Brussels Airlines' network, makes Jet Airways hub in Brussels the natural gateway to Europe and Africa.
