Etihad-backed Jet Airways signs 5 new code share deals

Indian carrier’s new alliances come weeks after Abu Dhabi airline bought 24% stake

India’s Jet Airways, in which Abu Dhabi carrier Etihad recently bought a 24 percent stake, has singed five new code share agreements.

The low cost carrier has partnered with American Airlines, Malaysia Airlines, Garuda Indonesia, Vietnam Airlines and Kenya Airways, taking its code share alliances to 14.

The Etihad equity deal is the first in India’s aviation history and will give the smaller carrier a significant financial boost.

Jet Airways has said it will purchase 100 new planes as it works towards having India’s largest international network.

The airline also is expected to establish a second hub in Abu Dhabi dedicated to operating flights to the US.
