Malaysia Airlines, Indigo ink codeshare pact

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airlines and IndiGo, an airline from India, have inked a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for a codeshare partnership and mutual cooperation agreement.

In a statement today, Malaysia Aviation Group (MAG) said the agreement would enable both carriers to provide customers with more options and flexibility for seamless travels between Malaysia and India.

It said Malaysia Airlines will be able to strengthen its connectivity into India as the marketing carrier on IndiGo-operated flights, while IndiGo customers will get to explore more Southeast Asian destinations through Malaysia Airlines’ extensive network.

"This reciprocal arrangement will allow both carriers to provide seamless connections to their customers, besides enabling them to enjoy an integrated travel itinerary among other facilities,” the group said.

MAG group managing director Datuk Captain Izham Ismail said the collaboration underscores the group’s ongoing commitment to providing diverse travel options and flexibility to this growing aviation market, with a primary focus on enhancing the customer journey.

"With India being our largest international market, we are delighted to enter this MoU with IndiGo to further widen our reach beyond the nine hubs we currently operate within India,” he said.

Meanwhile, IndiGo chief executive officer Pieter Elbers said this codeshare was in line with the carrier’s vision to provide access to an unparalleled network while delivering on the promise of providing on-time, affordable, courteous, and hassle-free travel experiences.

Currently, Malaysia Airlines operates 71 weekly flights to nine key hubs in India, including New Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kochi, Ahmedabad, Amritsar and Trivandrum. - Bernama
