Emirates and Jetstar expand codeshare agreement

15 Sep 2014 by GrahamSmith

Emirates and Jetstar Airways have expanded their codeshare agreement with five more routes in the Asia-Pacific region.

The deal sees the Gulf carrier's code placed on Jetstar routes between Melbourne and Ayers Rock (Uluru), Christchurch to Wellington, and three new destinations in south-east Asia — Penang, Yangon and Medan — from Jetstar Asia's hub in Singapore.

The new codeshare destinations are available from October 26.

They join the codeshare routes announced earlier this year (see news, February 13).

A statement said: "Skywards members can now also earn Skywards Miles when they book economy Starter Plus, economy Starter Max or Business Max fares on international routes with Jetstar Airways, Jetstar Asia, Jetstar Japan and Valuair, as well as domestic routes within Australia and New Zealand if they connect to an international flight."

Thierry Antinori, Emirates' executive vice president and CCO, said: "The expansion of the codeshare with Jetstar is an important milestone as we continue to expand the destinations available to Emirates' passengers.

"Today's announcement also benefits our Emirates Skywards members who will now see their miles go even further."

Lisa Brock, Jetstar's group CCO, added: "We are delighted to add Emirates Skywards as a loyalty option for Jetstar customers while also adding more routes to our codeshare partnership."
