Kingfisher, Jet to soon launch domestic code-share flights

Six months after entering into a strategic alliance, Jet Airways and Kingfisher Airlines will soon launch code-share flights on select routes.

"We are in discussions with Jet Airways on code-sharing on certain routes," a Kingfisher Airlines spokesperson told PTI in Mumbai on Wednesday.

Both the private air-carriers, afflicted by mounting losses, had inked an agreement last October to work together on certain business aspects to minimise losses.

Kingfisher and Jet would soon launch such flights (code-share) shortly," the spokesperson said without disclosing any further details.

While initially the agreement would be limited to domestic routes, it would later be extended to international routes as well.

Code-sharing is an agreement between two airlines by which both can sell seats to customers on the same flight.

The scope of the strategic alliance includes code-shares on both domestic and international flights, joint fuel management to reduce fuel expenses.

Besides, common ground-handling, cross-selling of flight inventories using a common global distribution system platform and cross-utilisation of crew on similar aircraft types and commonality, are other key areas of the agreement.
