Jet Airways, Virgin Atlantic Expand Codeshare Agreement Between India & US

Jet Airways and Virgin Atlantic announced a further expansion of their codeshare agreement between India and the United States, providing greater choice and enhanced connectivity via London Heathrow. The new agreement will make it easier for guests to tailor their trip by combining flights from Jet Airways, Virgin Atlantic and Delta Air Lines in a single booking. 

From April 19, 2017, Jet Airways guests traveling between India and the United States can connect through London Heathrow on to nine U.S. destinations operated by Virgin Atlantic: Atlanta, Boston, Newark, Washington (IAD), New York, Los Angeles, Miami, San Francisco and Seattle

The expansion builds on the existing codeshare agreement between Jet Airways and Virgin Atlantic in place since 2009. That agreement enables Virgin Atlantic guests to travel on Jet Airways operated services between Mumbai and London Heathrow in addition to the airline's own direct Delhi to London service. The agreement was extended in 2015 to Jet Airways domestic services allowing Virgin Atlantic guests to travel between London Heathrow and five destinations across India via Delhi or Mumbai.
