Codeshare boost for India

More travel options for North American passengers to and from India via Heathrow were created last week after Delta Air Lines and Virgin Atlantic announced an expanded partnership with Jet Airways.

Jet Airways passengers between India and North America can now connect through London on to nine US destinations operated by Delta: Atlanta, Boston, Detroit, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, Portland, Salt Lake City and Seattle.

In turn, Delta and Virgin Atlantic passengers between North America and India can connect with Delta codeshare on to Jet Airways’ flights to Mumbai and Delhi via Heathrow and onward to 20 destinations within India. 

The new routes also complement Delta and Jet Airways destinations available through existing codeshare agreements via Amsterdam Schiphol and Paris Charles de Gaulle.

Next year, subject to government approvals, Virgin Atlantic will expand its existing codeshare with Jet Airways, placing its marketing code on Virgin Atlantic-operated flights from Heathrow to 10 cities across North America including Miami, Newark, San Francisco and Washington.  

Virgin already operates a codeshare with Jet Airways on flights between five Indian cities and Heathrow via Delhi.

The companies say the development is another milestone for the Delta and Virgin Atlantic joint venture, offering greater network opportunities for North American customers and improving connections to and from India.
