United Airlines and Jet Airways agree to codeshare

Air travelers between the United States and India will enjoy smoother connections between flights on United Airlines and Jet Airways, beginning June 30.  Starting today, travelers on one or the other (or both) of these airlines will be able to book certain flights on each airline through the other airline.

Jet Airways will put its code (9W) onto the United Airlines flights between Heathrow Airport in London (IATA: LHR; ICAO: EGLL) and the United hubs of Chicago-O’Hare International (IATA: ORD; ICAO: KORD), Denver International (IATA: DEN; ICAO: KDEN), Los Angeles International (IATA: LAX; ICAO: KLAX), San Francisco International (IATA: SFO; ICAO: KSFO), and Washington-Dulles International (IATA: IAD; ICAO: KIAD).

Moreover, United Airlines will put its code (UA) onto three international routes flown by Jet Airways.  Those are the Jet Airways flights between (1) Heathrow and Mumbai-Shivaji International (IATA: BOM; ICAO: VABB); between (2) Hong Kong International (IATA: HKG; ICAO: VHHH) and Mumbai Shivaji International; and between (3) Hong Kong International and Delhi-Gandhi International (IATA: DEL; ICAO: VIDP).  United Airways will also put its code onto five Jet Airways routes flown domestically within India.

United Airlines traces its origins to 1926, and a company called Boeing Air Transport.  It is based in Chicago, and its main hub is at O’Hare International.  Jet Airways commenced operations in 1993.  It flies to 67 destinations both within India, and internationally.  Its main hub is at Mumbai-Shivaji International.

To keepingitonethousand: Thanks for commenting. Look around the site when you get the chance. The article you posted your comment to is actually one of those things I put up when NOTHING is going on in the airline or cruise line businesses. I'm glad you liked it though!
