India-based airline Jet Airways is hoping to agree an alliance with South Africa Airways.The deal has still to be approved by regulators but the marketing agreement could enable the two airlines to sell each other’s fares on flights to Mumbai from Johannesburg.
In addition, the airlines could also sell tickets for domestic connection routes to Cape Town and a number of Indian cities, reports Financial Express.
A Jet Airways official said: “The two carriers would code-share on the trunk Mumbai-Johannesburg route. The issue is currently pending with [the] civil aviation ministry.
“The code-share with the South African carrier would help us get more passengers.”
Jet Airways launched the new Mumbai to Johannesburg route in April using the carrier’s A330-200 aircraft.
The airline recently reported a profit after tax of $2.8 million (£1.74 million) for the second quarter of 2010, ending September 30th.
