Jet Airways and Mexico’s flag carrier Aeromexico have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that outlines cooperation in the areas of enabling codeshare flights and frequent flyer programmes, the Indian airline said in a press statement today.

The MoU was signed by Jet Airways’ Chairman Naresh Goyal and Aeromexico’s CEO Andrés Conesa, on the sidelines of the IATA Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Cancun, Mexico.

As part of the arrangement, both carriers will code on each other’s services between India and Mexico via common gates in Europe (London Heathrow, Paris Charles De Gaulle and Amsterdam). To begin with, Jet Airways will place its marketing code “9W” on Aeromexico flights from London Heathrow to Mexico City. In turn, Aeromexico will place its marketing code on Jet Airways’ direct services from London Heathrow to Mumbai and Delhi.

The codeshare partnership will offer guests enhanced connectivity and seamless access to the combined networks of both airlines, with convenient connections via Jet Airways’ European gateways.

Speaking at the MoU signing ceremony, Goyal said, “We are confident that this new codeshare partnership will stimulate the demand for business and tourist travel between India and Mexico.”

This comprehensive MoU signed between the two carriers also includes cooperation in the area of reciprocal Frequent Flyer benefits for members.

The initial codeshare flights via London Heathrow will open for sale as well as travel later this year, subject to government approvals.
