Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Friday, 29 February 2008

With the launch on Thursday of year-round daily codeshare service to Mumbai and Chennai in cooperation with Indian carrier Jet Airways, Air Canada has expanded its network to India from three to four destinations, and significantly increased access to India from across Canada.

With the addition of Chennai, Air Canada now serves four destinations in India on a codeshare basis: Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Chennai. Air Canada codeshare services offer customers convenient connection options, one-stop check-in and seamless baggage transfer to final destination, on a single ticket.

"We are pleased to offer our customers more choice and convenience when travelling to India, in cooperation with our partner, Jet Airways," said Daniel Shurz, Vice President, Network Planning, Air Canada. "With the addition of service to Chennai, and expanded options of traveling to India via London, in addition to Frankfurt or Zurich with our Star Alliance partners, Air Canada customers benefit from a vast choice of daily, year-round flights to and from the communities we serve across Canada, and four major destinations in India."

Air Canada customers travelling to India now benefit from the choice of the carrier's extensive schedule of non-stop flights to London Heathrow from seven cities across Canada (Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Halifax) which connect in London to Jet Airways operated flights to Mumbai.

In addition, flights from Toronto to Chennai via Brussels, operated by Jet Airways, are available from Air Canada on a codeshare basis. Aeroplan members benefit from mileage accumulation on these Air Canada codeshare flights.

These new codeshare services offered via London Heathrow to Mumbai, and Toronto to Chennai via Brussels, complement Air Canada's daily year-round codeshare services to Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore offered in conjunction with its Star Alliance partners Lufthansa, via Frankfurt to Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore, and SWISS via Zurich to Delhi and Mumbai.
