Both Jin Air and Jetstar Group will begin preparation works such as conducting system interlocks, with the interline service expected to launch in the third-quarter of this year.
This interline agreement will allow Jin Air to combine desired routes of Jetstar Group with its existing network and develop seamless travel packages for its customers. Jin Air’s passengers will enjoy greater connection options available on more than 150 routes served by Jetstar Group’s branded airlines across its dense network.
Jin Air said, “This agreement with Jetstar Group is the first interline agreement for Jin Air. By acknowledging Jin Air’s potential and growth, Jetstar Group will be able to bring in more Korean customers to its airlines, while simultaneously we can also benefit from the expanded network through connecting with Jetstar Group’s extensive routes.”
Following this collaboration, Jin Air will continue to explore further interline cooperation with other airlines and work on increasing connecting routes with Jetstar Group.
