Emirates and Jetstar Pacific have announced a new codeshare agreement that expands the existing partnership between the Dubai-based carrier and the Jetstar Group. The new partnership will provide Emirates’ passengers with smooth connectivity on domestic flights within Vietnam in addition to flights connecting Vietnam to Singapore, Thailand, and Australia.

The new codeshare services from Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi connect Emirates’ passengers to 14 Vietnamese cities beyond Ho Chi Minh City and six cities beyond Hanoi. Emirates will also operate codeshare flights with Jetstar Pacific between the latter’s hub in Ho Chi Minh City and Singapore and Bangkok, both of which serve as connections for Emirates passengers continuing their travels to Brisbane, Melbourne or Sydney.

Vietnamese destinations covered by the new codeshare routes include Ban Me Thuot, Phu Quoc Island, Da Lat, Quy Nhon, Tam Ky - Chu Lai, Hue, Pleiku, Nha Trang, Vinh, Tuy Hoa, Dong Hoi, Thanh Hoa, Hai Phong, and Da Nang, in addition to Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi. Under the agreement, Emirates’ flight number will be placed on Jetstar Pacific’s services to all codeshare destinations.

The partnership will give customers the simplicity of purchasing connecting flights using one reservation and a smooth ticketing, check-in, boarding, and baggage check experience during the entire journey. Passengers booking flights from 16 destinations in Vietnam, in addition to Hong Kong, Osaka, Taipei, Singapore, Guangzhou and Bangkok, will be able to connect in Ho Chi Minh City or Hanoi and fly with Emirates to many destinations worldwide. Furthermore, Emirates passengers wishing to explore Vietnam can enjoy the flexibility of open-jaw flight bookings where they can fly into either Ho Chi Minh City or Hanoi and depart from the other city.

“As part of our continuous efforts to delight customers around the world, we’re pleased to further extend our partnership with the Jetstar Group to include Jetstar Pacific, allowing Emirates’ customers to benefit from enhanced connectivity to numerous destinations in Vietnam and beyond while also enjoying the convenience and rewards of the integrated loyalty program Skywards, wherein customers can earn and redeem Skywards Miles on the codeshare flights,” said Mr. Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President of Strategic Planning, Revenue Optimisation & Aeropolitical Affairs.

“Jetstar Pacific’s route network of 16 domestic destinations in Vietnam in addition to six international cities within Asia complements flights from Emirates’ European network into Vietnam and from Australia to Vietnam via Singapore and Bangkok. This further enhances our global network that spans more than 160 destinations worldwide.” 

Mr. Alan McIntyre, Jetstar’s Executive Manager Networks and Partnerships, said this was another exciting announcement for Emirates and Jetstar, as they continue to grow and develop their valuable partnership. “This codeshare is another way we are fulfilling our promise to make the world more accessible, by giving Emirates’ customers access to our growing Vietnamese network,” he said. “We are proud to extend our cooperation with Emirates’ Skywards, offering its members earning and redemption opportunities on Jetstar Pacific.”
