SpiceJet has inked an initial pact with Gulf-based Emirates for entering into a code-share partnership to provide wider connectivity to its passengers on the latter’s network across the US, Europe, Africa and the Middle East. In turn, Emirates’ passengers will get unhindered access to SpiceJet’s 51 domestic destinations – 10 through direct connectivity and the remaining 41 through connecting flights. This is SpiceJet’s second partnership with an overseas airline. Earlier, in 2016, the airline had signed an interline pact with German scheduled operator Hahn Air. The proposed code-share agreement will open up flights for Indian travellers to North and South American destinations such as New York, Washington, Toronto and Sao Paulo as well as Middle Eastern destinations such as Jeddah, Kuwait and Amman that are operated by Emirates.
