Emirates - SpiceJet codeshare agreement to help flyers from Mangaluru

Daijiworld Media Network - New Delhi

Dubai / New Delhi, Apr 23: Emirates Airlines has announced the signing of an initial pact of codeshare with India's budget airlines SpiceJet. This new arrangement could help Indian passengers from various airports and Indian airports to Europe, Africa, America, Middle East and other destinations. The announcement could bring some relief to fliers to and from Indian airports who are disappointed after the closure of Jet Airways.

Passengers traveling from and to Mangaluru airport had Jet airways that connected to USA, Canada, Europe and other popular destinations. But new codeshare agreement between Emirates and SpiceJet will bring huge relief to passengers as SpiceJet will issue boarding pass from Mangaluru to any destinations in the world where Emirates airlines connect. Travelers from Mangaluru can now take SpiceJet flight to Bengaluru, Mumbai or Dubai to take-up onward journey to world's popular destinations via Emirates airlines, under single PNR or reservation. The inconvenience of shifting luggage from one point to other is also solved.

According to Khaleej Times, UAE English daily, the partnership will enable Emirates' passengers to enjoy seamless connectivity on flights to India, leveraging SpiceJet's strong domestic presence and adding six new destinations: Amritsar, Jaipur, Pune, Mangaluru, Madurai and Kozhikode - to the nine existing cities in India served by Emirates.

This will bolster Emirates' already-extensive network adding a total of 67 weekly connections between Emirates' hub in Dubai to these six fast-growing destinations in India.

SpiceJet passengers traveling from Delhi, Mumbai, Ahmadabad, Kochi, Amritsar, Jaipur, Pune, Mangaluru, Madurai, Kozhikode and 41 other domestic destinations that the airline operates to, will be able to access Emirates' expansive network across the globe. Optimised scheduling will allow for minimal transit times between India and these global destinations and travelers on these codeshare routes will be able to book connecting flights using a single reservation.

    China has Air China, China Southern & China Eastern with hubs at different locations. But we cannot have 3 hubs with 3 different airlines because China is a big country compared to India. Geographically New Delhi is at the center of Northern India & Bengaluru is at the center of Southern India surrounded by airports like Hyderabad, Cochin, Trivandrum, Chennai & of course Mangaluru. So we can have one private airline running at these 2 hubs with no frills connecting surrounding airports.

    The reason for New Delhi being hub for travel towards North Pole, Russia, China, Scandinavian countries, Europe etc., because it’s closer to those destinations than Bengaluru. The reason for Bengaluru being the southern hub because it’s closer to South East Asian countries, Australian subcontinent, African destinations & famous islands around. Also Bengaluru can be future hub for ultra long range connectivity to South & Central America when Boeing 777x gets introduced in the near future.

    There are many flights from Bangalore towards middle-east which can land in Mangalore airport to pick-up passengers with out much delay in overall travel time. However there is lack of will among airlines, administration, elected representatives to do this.

    Its not lack ow will... but the reason being Mangalore is having Table top runway a max risk for most pilots an aircraft....

    This Spice Jet and Emirates deal is a parting gift of Modi to his chamcha Ajay Singh....

    Emirates must be crazy to sign a deal wit worst airline spicejet...There is a scam here or treat scam by Govt.of India same like Rafael deal...

    Because Mangalore has lost it's charm - especially lagging miles and miles away behind any expeditious concrete efforts in widening the runway, approach and exit roads too and from the airport. Utterly disgraceful is the fact that both sleeping and active politicians have chained their hands together and NOT at all taking interest in chalking out an ambitious plan to expand the airport and make it viable. What a waste? They are instead shamelessly asking paasengers to head to Kannur. How can you expect people to depend on these politicians and the Government to see it through. Politicians are stinking rich with money. They can certainly pool in the funds if there is a will and a way and somehow get this done. They only want to pocket their commission and get their kick backs. Disgusting state of affairs. I suggest these politicians to approach the Kerala Government and ask for an adhoc loan to get this expedited at the soonest. I'm sure Kerala being our next door neighbor, would certainly come to the aid of the State. No harm becoming humble and giving this idea a try. It won't cost much.

    Good move.. but what about checking luggage 30kgs or 15kgs?? In Emirates from Dubai to Mumbai/Bangalore it’s 25/30 kgs and in Domestic it’s 15kgs.

    Riyadh people are still not given any direct flight to Mangalore, hope some airlines look into this opportunity as many passengers are opting for Kannur airport.

    This a good idea. This agreement of code sharing of Emirates-SpiceJet will help many travelers flying in and out of Mangalore and New York since Jet Airways has no more in service till further notice. I usually travel from New York to Mangalore via Abu Dhabi by Itihad and Jet Airways.
