Virgin Atlantic enters code share pact with India's Jet Airways for better flight connections

New Delhi: Minister of State for Trade and Investment, Rt. Hon Lord Francis Maude of Horsham, the United Kingdom announced a code-share agreement between British airline Virgin Atlantic and Indian carrier Jet Airways here today.

Speaking on the third leg of a three-city visit to India, Lord Maude said, "This partnership between prominent British and Indian airlines will help ease air travel for thousands of passengers, improving connectivity between the UK and four major Indian cities. It is an excellent example of strengthening ties between two countries and embodies the spirit of our great collaboration campaign".
