Jet Airways and Virgin Atlantic Announce Further Expansion of Codeshare Agreement

Jet Airways and Virgin Atlantic announced a further expansion of their codeshare agreement between India and the United States, providing greater choice and enhanced connectivity via London Heathrow. The new agreement will make it even easier for guests to tailor their perfect trip by combining flights from Jet Airways, Virgin Atlantic and Delta Air Lines in a single booking to the extended codeshare. From April 19, 2017, Jet Airways guests travelling between India and the United States can connect through London Heathrow on to nine U.S. destinations operated by Virgin Atlantic; Atlanta, Boston, Newark, Washington (IAD), New York, Los Angeles, Miami, San Francisco and Seattle. This expansion builds on the existing agreement between Jet Airways and Virgin Atlantic in place since 2009 - enabling Virgin Atlantic guests to travel on Jet Airways operated services between Mumbai and London Heathrow in addition to the airline's own direct Delhi to London service. In 2015 this codeshare was extended on to Jet Airways domestic services allowing Virgin Atlantic guests to travel between London Heathrow and five destinations across India via Delhi or Mumbai.
