Jetstar, Emirates expand codeshare on more routes

Emirates and Jetstar have announced the expansion of their codeshare and frequent flyer relationship, to 30 routes across the Asia Pacific region providing more choice to Emirates customers.

From 26 October 2014*, Emirates will grow its codeshare on Jetstar services to include Jetstar Airways services between Melbourne and Ayers Rock (Uluru), Christchurch to Wellington in New Zealand and three new destinations in south-east Asia from Jetstar Asia’s hub in Singapore.

The new Jetstar Asia codeshare services from Singapore will connect Emirates passengers to Penang in Malaysia, Yangon in Myanmar and Medan in Indonesia.

The additional destinations complement the current 25 routes announced in February this year.

Effective immediately, Skywards members can now also earn Skywards Miles when they book economy Starter Plus, economy Starter Max or Business Max fares on international routes with Jetstar Airways, Jetstar Asia, Jetstar Japan and Valuair, as well as domestic routes within Australia and New Zealand if they connect to an international flight.

"The expansion of codeshare with Jetstar Group carriers is an important milestone as we continue to expand the destinations available to Emirates’ passengers. On Emirates alone we offer 145 destinations and with our partnership with Jetstar carriers we are adding a further 30 routes across the Far East & Australasia region," said Thierry Antinori, Emirates’ Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer.

"Today’s announcement also benefits our Emirates Skywards members who will now see their miles go even further, be it a holiday in Penang or extra sightseeing in New Zealand.”

“We are delighted to add Emirates Skywards as a loyalty option for Jetstar customers while also adding more routes to our codeshare partnership,” said Executive Manager Networks Planning and Strategy Jetstar Group Alistair Hartley.

“Emirates is a valued partner of the Jetstar Group and we are proud to work with Emirates to extend its worldwide reach further by leveraging the Jetstar network across Asia Pacific.”

Emirates customers travelling on Jetstar will enjoy a range of full service fare features such as food and beverage options and the same luggage allowance they would have on Emirates.

All Emirates’ passengers on Jetstar flights will receive boarding passes on check-in at their first international departure point for connecting international service

Members must enter their Emirates Skywards membership number during the booking process and Skywards Miles will be awarded within two weeks of completing the journey.
