Hyderabad, Apr 22 (UNI) Indian private carrier SpiceJet and Emirates have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to enter into a reciprocal codeshare agreement, which is set to open new routes and destinations for passengers travelling between India and popular destinations across America, Europe, Africa and the Middle East, an official statement said on Monday.

SpiceJet passengers travelling from Delhi, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Kochi, Amritsar, Jaipur, Pune, Mangalore, Madurai, Kozhikode and 41 other domestic destinations that the airline operates to, would be able to access Emirates expansive network across the globe.

SpiceJet Chairman and Managing Director Ajay Singh, said that as part of SpiceJet’s international expansion strategy, we have signed a MoU for a codeshare agreement with Emirates and this new partnership should immensely benefit passengers travelling on both airlines, the statement further said.

''While SpiceJet passengers from across India will be able to enjoy seamless connectivity leveraging Emirates vast network across Europe, Africa, America and the Middle East those travelling to India on Emirates will be able to travel to 51 destinations across our domestic network,'' Mr Singh added.

Subject to regulatory approvals, the codeshare agreement would also open up flights for Indian travellers to North and South American destinations such as New York, Washington, Toronto, and Sao Paulo as well as Middle Eastern destinations such as Jeddah, Kuwait and Amman, operated by Emirates, the statement informed.

Optimized scheduling would allow for minimal transit times between India and these global destinations and travellers on these codeshare routes will be able to book connecting flights using a single reservation.

''This partnership with SpiceJet and the mutual expansion of our network will go a long way in further enhancing the travel experience of our customers in India as well as those heading into India, benefiting travellers and businesses alike,'' Adnan Kazim, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President, Strategic Planning, Revenue Optimization and Aeropolitical affairs said.

The partnership would enable Emirates passengers to enjoy seamless connectivity on flights to India, leveraging SpiceJet’s strong domestic presence and adding 51 domestic (10 directly and 41 through connecting flights) destinations, namely Delhi, Kochi, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Amritsar, Jaipur, Pune, Mangalore, Madurai and Kozhikode.

This would bolster Emirates already-extensive network adding a total of 67 weekly connections between Emirates’ hub in Dubai to these growing destinations in India, the statement added.
