According to a statement released on Thursday, American Airlines and IndiGo have entered into a codeshare arrangement that will allow the former to sell seats on the latter's flights operating on the Delhi-Bengaluru and Delhi-Mumbai routes. Only the New York-Delhi route is now served by American Airlines.
“American and IndiGo plan to expand the codeshare in the near future to include more than a dozen additional destinations in India (in addition to Bengaluru and Mumbai)," according to an American Airlines statement.
In September of last year, American Airlines and IndiGo announced that they will be collaborating on a codeshare agreement.
“IndiGo is a premier Indian carrier and through our codeshare agreement, customers can book travel on IndiGo via Delhi to and from two of India's most popular destinations, Bangalore and Mumbai,” stated by Anmol Bhargava, Vice President of Global Alliances and Partnerships, American Airlines.
India's largest airline, IndiGo, has previously signed codeshare agreements with Qatar Airways, Turkish Airlines, and Air France-KLM.
