15 December 2008, Jet Airways and Emirates Airline will launch a reciprocal frequent flyer arrangement whereby members of Jet Airways'
JetPrivilege frequent flyer programme, may earn and redeem miles across Emirates' rapidly-expanding international network, with the
exception of flights between India and Dubai. Members of Emirates' Skywards programme
can also earn and redeem miles on all Jet Airways flights operating within India.
The same day, Emirates will also commence a unilateral code share on Jet Airways' daily flights from Mumbai and New Delhi to and from Dubai,
offering passengers enhanced connectivity and a range of services between India and Dubai.
Jet Airways operates daily services on the Mumbai/New Delhi-Dubai sectors aboard its state-of-the-art Airbus A330-200 and
Boeing 737-800 aircraft respectively. Jet Airways' flights on these sectors will be identified with its
'9W' code as well as with the Emirates 'EK' code.
Mr. Wolfgang Prock Schauer, Chief Executive Officer, Jet
Airways, said, "Dubai is an important market for Jet Airways and there is
significant demand from our customers to travel to and beyond Dubai. We are delighted to be able to get this exciting, new agreement up and
running quickly for the benefit of our customers. The frequent flyer partnership with Emirates, particularly, is a mutually beneficial one, enabling
JetPrivilege members to tap into Emirates' impressive international network while earning and redeeming frequent flyer miles, and vice-versa
vis-ŕ-vis Jet Airways' unmatched pan-India domestic network."
