Emirates / Jetstar Codeshare and Frequent Flyer Agreement

Emirates and Jetstar have announced an agreement that is set to open up new destinations for Emirates passengers across Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia. Emirates : Jetstar

Emirates’ code will now be placed on a number of routes operated by Jetstar Airways in Australia and New Zealand and Jetstar Asia, giving passengers access to 27 new routes and six new destinations such as Bali in Indonesia, Byron Bay in Australia, Dunedin in New Zealand, and (subject to final regulatory approval) Siem Reap in Cambodia.

Members of Emirates Skywards will be able to earn Miles for flights on Jetstar-operated routes that have the Emirates code and be able to use their Miles to purchase reward flights on any Jetstar operated route (excluding Jetstar Pacific flights), starting from 7,025 Skywards Miles.

“This new link between Emirates and Jetstar offers our passengers a number of benefits including new routes to destinations that are not part of the Emirates network today,” said Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President, Planning, Aeropolitical & Industry Affairs. “The link between Emirates and Jetstar is also fantastic news for our Emirates Skywards members, giving them more options to use their miles to explore new countries and cultures.”

“This agreement will see us bring our extensive Asia Pacific network, consisting of some of the most popular leisure destinations, to the doorstep of Emirates passengers across the globe,” said Lisa Brock, Jetstar Group Chief Commercial Officer. “Working with Emirates we have created a product and a network offering that will provide Emirates passengers with new holiday options throughout South East Asia including Bali, Siem Reap and Phnom Penh and new destinations across Australia and New Zealand.

“Emirates customers travelling on Jetstar will enjoy a range of full service fare features such as food and beverage options and the same luggage allowance they would have on Emirates.”

From 6th April 2014, all Emirates’ passengers on Jetstar flights will receive boarding passes on check-in at their first international departure point for connecting international services.

The codeshare includes seven domestic routes in Australia to add to the 50 that Emirates already codeshares with cornerstone investor in the Jetstar Group, Qantas; four new routes in New Zealand, six new routes between Australian and New Zealand over the Tasman Sea and 10 international routes out of Singapore to Indonesia, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand and Hong Kong.

Emirates/ Jetstar codeshare itineraries will be on sale from 13th February 2014 for travel from 6th April 2014. Emirates frequent flyers will be able to redeem flights with points from 1st March 2014.
