In turn, will offer its guests access into India by placing its marketing code 'XY' on Jet Airways' international flights connecting Jeddah to Mumbai, Riyadh to Mumbai and Delhi as well as Dammam to Mumbai and Delhi, the release said.

Flynas will also place its marketing code on certain destinations on the Jet Airways domestic network, via Mumbai to Delhi, Kochi, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, and Lucknow as well as via Delhi to Bengaluru, Lucknow, Chennai and Kochi, it added.

Bander Al-Mohanna, chief executive officer, Flynas, said this partnership is an important step in-line with the airline's expansion and development strategy.

"Through such agreements, we aim to offer a continually improved service to our passengers by adding more travel routes and expanding our reach regionally and internationally, in particular to key markets such as India," he added.
