Ten months before the code sharing agreement between Air India and Malaysia Airlines scheduled to lapse, Jet Airways has entered into a code sharing agreement with Malaysia Airlines.
Air India's code sharing agreement lapses on December 29, 2009.
Jet Airways will place its 9W code on Malaysia Airlines' flights from Kula Lumpur to five major Indian cities: Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad. In return, Malaysia will place its MH code on Jet's Chennai-Kuala Lumpur daily flight — its only service to Malaysia. Thus Jet can connect to Kuala Lumpur from five cities without operating its own international flights.
