Thailand-based Bangkok Airways has expanded an existing codeshare agreement with Indian carrier Jet Airways to provide additional benefits to their customers travelling between major destinations across Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, and India.

As part of the new deal, Jet Airways will place its marketing code on Bangkok Airways’ flights beyond Bangkok to some other places in Thailand, including Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, KohSamui, Krabi, Phuket, Sukhothai and Trat in, as well as Phnom Penh, Siem Reap in Cambodia, and Da Nang, Phu Quoc in Vietnam.

Bangkok Airways will place its marketing code on Jet Airways’ flights beyond Mumbai and Delhi to some of the major Indian destinations, including Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Goa, and Chennai.

The expanded collaboration is expected to provide improved connectivity, additional choice and convenient travel connections to the guests travelling across the combined networks of both the carriers.

Under the current codeshare deal, which came into effect in 2013, Jet Airways puts its code on Bangkok Airways’ flights covering Mumbai and Bangkok, while Bangkok Airways places its codes on Jet Airways’ flights between Bangkok-Mumbai and Bangkok-Delhi.

“We are pleased to expand cooperation with Jet Airways to strengthen our respective route networks.”

Bangkok Airways president Puttipong Prasarttong-Osoth said: “We are pleased to expand cooperation with Jet Airways to strengthen our respective route networks and offer business and leisure travellers with unprecedented and convenient access to new gateways.

“Moreover, Jet Airways’ codeshare passengers travelling on Bangkok Airways will enjoy the boutique airline’s unparalleled services such as lounge access and in-flight meal.”
