In an announcement from the Jetstar Group in mid-December, two of the group’s carriers have partnered with KLM and Air France with new codeshare partnerships.
Already in effect, Jetstar Asia – based in Singapore – will launch cooperation with Air France/KLM while Melbourne-based Jetstar Airways will have a partnership with KLM.
With the new codeshare agreement, KLM customers will be able to connect from Jetstar Asia’s Singapore Changi hub to the budget carrier’s destinations Da Nang (Vietnam), Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam), Denpasar (Indonesia), Medan (Indonesia), Surabaya (Indonesia), Phnom Penh (Cambodia), Siem Reap (Cambodia), Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Penang (Malaysia), Phuket (Thailand), Yangon (Myanmar), and Darwin (Australia).
KLM will also add its KL flight code on Jetstar Airways flights departing from Denpasar (Bali) to Australian cities of Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth, and Sydney.
“It is always great to find new opportunities to be able to offer our incredible network to more customers who are looking to explore Southeast Asia and Australia,” Jetstar Asia CEO, Bara Pasupathi said in a statement. He added: “Changi’s world-class facilitates make Singapore the leading choice for customers connecting between Europe and Southeast Asia and Australia”.
This is the second major agreement with another airline the Jetstar Group has announced, following one with Tigerair Taiwan which allowed customers on booking platform Dohop to book flights with connections operated by both carriers.
