Indian carrier plans South African alliance

India-based airline Jet Airways is hoping to agree an alliance with South Africa Airways. The deal has still to be approved by regulators but the marketing agreement could enable the two airlines to sell each other's fares on flights to Mumbai from Johannesburg.

In addition, the airlines could also sell tickets for domestic connection routes to Cape Town and a number of Indian cities, reports Financial Express.

A Jet Airways official said: "The two carriers would code-share on the trunk Mumbai-Johannesburg route. The issue is currently pending with [the] civil aviation ministry. "The code-share with the South African carrier would help us get more passengers."
