Indigo signs codeshare pact with KLM and Air France

The agreement will offer Air France and KLM customers access to 25 new destinations in India.

India’s low-cost airline IndiGo has reportedly entered into a codeshare alliance with Air France and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, the respective countries’ national carriers.

Subject to the nod of the Government of India, the agreement is expected to become effective in February next year.

A code sharing agreement allows airline companies to sell seats on a flight operated by another company.

The agreement also enables airline companies to market the same flight under their own airline designator and flight number.

As per the agreement, IndiGo customers will have access to Air France and KLM global network, which covers more than 250 destinations across the globe.

The Air France and KLM network comprise 120 destinations in Europe and about 50 in the America.

Previously, IndiGo is also said to have reached code sharing agreements with other carriers such as Turkish Airlines, Qatar Airways and American Airlines.

Earlier this month, KLM signed a codeshare pact with ITA Airways.
