Jet Airways and Air France-KLM signed a landmark ‘Enhanced Cooperation Agreement’ for the development of their operations between Europe and India.This agreement strengthens the partnership built between the three airlines since 2014. This cooperation was expanded in 2016 with an extensive code-share agreement for connections between Europe and North America and Jet Airways’ hubs at Mumbai and Delhi in India via Air France-KLM’ hubs at Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Amsterdam-Schiphol.
“The enhanced cooperation agreement between Jet Airways, Air France and KLM being signed during Jet Airways’ 25th Year and Air France’s 70 Years in India, represents the next stage in our journey of offering our valued guests greater choice, connectivity, and comfort across our combined global networks. I am excited for the future, as we move forward with this historic development and the exciting new value proposition which will drive tremendous benefits to our customers.” said Naresh Goyal, Chairman Jet Airways.
