MUMBAI: Budget carrier Spicejet on Monday announced the signing of an initial pact for codeshare partnership with Gulf carrier Emirates.
According to the statement issued by the SpiceJet, the reciprocal partnership will allow the opening of new routes and destinations for passengers of the two airlines.
"I am delighted to announce that as part of SpiceJet's international expansion strategy, we have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for a codeshare agreement," SpiceJet Chairman and Managing Director Ajay Singh said in the statement.
“SpiceJet passengers from 51 domestic destinations will be able to access Emirates' network across the US, Europe, Africa and the Middle East”, it added.
Code-sharing allows an airline to book its passengers on its partner carriers and provide seamless travel to destinations where it has no presence.
