Melbourne, Feb 25(ANI): Australian airline Jetstar has forged a new partnership with Indian counterpart Jet Airways.
Jetstar confirmed an "interline" agreement with Jet Airways in the wake of Victoria and New South Wales pressing Air India to re-launch a direct India-Australia tourism route.
Jetstar passengers will be able to arrange flight connections to destinations in India and elsewhere in Asia on the Indian airline, primarily out of Singapore.
Jetstar said its passengers would now be able to book a single "combined ticket" with Jet Airways, which includes luggage transfers, The Herald Sun reports.
Jetstar chief commercial officer David Koczkar said the agreement would allow both airlines to meet the increased demand from the Indian middle class.
India rates just outside the top 10 countries of origin for visitors to Australia but the number of visitors are growing rapidly and increased by 12.3 percent in 2010. (ANI)
