Gulf Air, the national carrier of Bahrain, and Jet Airways, a leading Indian airliner, have signed a codeshare agreement, enhancing network connectivity on services between Bahrain and India.
As per the agreement, which comes into effect from April 12, Gulf Air will place its flight code on Jet Airways’ daily services between Mumbai and Bahrain while Jet Airways will place its flight code on all Gulf Air-operated flights between Bahrain and Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Kochi and Thiruvananthapuram.
