Jet signs pact with United Airlines

New Delhi: Jet Airways has said that it has forged a frequent-flyer partnership with the United Airlines of the US to boost connectivity on the busy India-US sector.

Under the arrangement, frequent fliers of both airlines would be able to earn and redeem points on the entire global network of the United Airlines, which operates over 3,200 flights a day to more than 200 US domestic and international destinations from its five hubs in the US.

“While the partnership would boost connectivity on the India-US sector, it would also enable the passengers of both carriers to tap into their respective international networks," Jet Airways CEO Wolfgang Prock-Schauer said.

The premier Indian private carrier, with a 85-aircraft fleet, operates to 64 domestic and international destinations, including New York, Newark and San Fransisco.

Jet Airways has similar cooperation agreements with several other major global airlines.
