India’s Jet Airways and Malaysia Airlines have signed a codeshare and network-wide reciprocal Frequent Flyer partnership to provide customers with enhanced travel connectivity and privileges.

Customers will benefit from a wider choice of flights, convenient onward connections in India and Malaysia with seamless transfers and through check-in, and the perks of frequent flyer membership.

Jet Airways will place its “9W” flight code on Malaysia Airlines’ flights operating between Kuala Lumpur and 5 major Indian cities, Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Bengaluru (Bangalore) and Hyderabad.

In return, Malaysia Airlines will place its “MH” code on Jet Airways’ daily services between Chennai and Kuala Lumpur.

Tickets will be available for purchase from 25 February 2009 for travel commencing 3 March 2009.

In addition, customers will be able to earn and redeem miles when they travel with the respective airlines.

Malaysia Airlines Managing Director/ Chief Executive Officer, Dato’ Sri Idris Jala said, “I am delighted to partner with Jet Airways as Malaysia Airlines work towards expanding and strengthening our hub-and-spoke network. This will allow us to capture untapped traffic from secondary points in India through the 5 Indian gateways onto MH’s network. Based on modest estimates, we expect to capture approximately 10% of the untapped potential traffic to Kuala Lumpur and beyond. This is valued at RM10 to 12 million per annum.”
