Delta and their joint venture partner Air France-KLM have extended their codeshare agreement and have added India’s Jet Airways.  The agreement will benefit customers flying from North America via Paris-Charles de Gaulle to India, complementing the current service offered through Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.

Effective October 30, and subject to government approvals, Delta customers flying from the United States and Europe will be able to connect onto Jet Airways' flights to Mumbai from Paris; and to New Delhi and Mumbai from Amsterdam.

"Delta's co-operation with Jet Airways has been a great success and has opened up significant new service options via Amsterdam for the 11,000 passengers flying between North America and the Indian subcontinent each day," said Nat Pieper, Delta's Senior Vice President - Europe, Middle East, Africa and India.  "The expansion of the codesharing across our European hubs is the next step in deepening our cooperation with Jet Airways and building strong links with the Indian market."

"The extension of the services with Jet Airways and Delta Air Lines will enable Air France-KLM's customers to travel more easily and with the best possible services via our two powerful European hubs, between Europe, India and North America." said Pieter Bootsma, EVP Commercial Strategy of Air France-KLM.

This agreement gives Delta passengers more destinations within India.  Jet Airways serves 20 destinations within India from Mumbai and New Delhi including Calicut, Coimbatore, Goa, Indore, Jaipur and more. 

This also creates a new hub in Charles de Gaulle Airport giving Jet Airways customers access to Air France flights to 12 North American destinations.  Once complete, Jet Airways will codeshare to 21 North American gateways operated by Air France and Delta.  Jet Airways will also continue to codeshare on Air France operated flights to 28 European destinations beyond Paris.

And one of the best benefits is Air France-KLM Flying Blue members are eligible to earn and redeem miles on all routes operated by Jet Airways.  They are working to make Delta SkyMiles and Jet Airways' Jet Privilege members eligible to earn reciprocal mileage and redemption privileges.
