November 25, 2019: SpiceJet today announced the signing of a codeshare and interline agreement with Emirates to give travellers access to a wider and a stronger route network. This is the first-ever codeshare agreement signed by SpiceJet.

The codeshare agreement follows the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) by both airlines in April 2019.

Ajay Singh, chairman and managing director, SpiceJet said: “We are very pleased to partner with Emirates for this new codeshare agreement which will offer a seamless travel experience and the widest possible travel options to our passengers travelling to and from Europe, America, Africa and the Middle East. This codeshare would further strengthen our position in the region and complements our international expansion strategy.”

From early 2020, customers travelling to India can opt for more flight on routes common to both airlines – Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Cochin and Delhi. Emirates’ customers can book and connect in Dubai on direct services to Amritsar, Kozhikode, Mangaluru, Madurai, Jaipur and Pune routes operated by SpiceJet.

The codeshare agreement means travellers from across the globe can book a single ticket with attractive fares to any of Emirates’ nine points across India and connect onwards to 172 domestic routes that are part of SpiceJet’s network. SpiceJet’s domestic network includes popular destinations like Goa, Dehradun, Dharamshala, Jaisalmer, Jammu, Srinagar, Leh, Guwahati, Pondicherry, Port Blair, Shirdi, Tirupati, Udaipur and Varanasi.

In the first phase of the interline agreement, customers can start booking flights from today for travel starting on December 15, 2019. SpiceJet passengers travelling from India to Dubai will also be able to access Emirates’ expansive network very soon.

Adnan Kazim, chief commercial officer, Emirates said "Emirates has historically shared a close and collaborative bond with India. In the last decade, we have flown more than 50 million customers on our Indian routes, which we now serve with 170 weekly services from Dubai. Our partnership will help us leverage SpiceJet's extensive route network so that our customers who are visiting friends and family can fly closer to their hometowns, while tourists can more easily access many of the incredible sights and sound India has to offer. This will also have a significant and positive impact on businesses in both countries and globally. We look to strengthening our partnership with SpiceJet even more in the coming months."
