MUMBAI - With a clear focus to continuously enhance guest experience, Jet Airways - India's full-service, premier international airline, announced a strategic association with ride-hailing major Uber.

With this first-of-its kind initiative in the Indian aviation space, the airline will partner with Uber to offer its guests greater choice by facilitating their travel to/from the airport once they have booked a ticket on the Jet Airways app. This path-breaking initiative from the airline will help guests by offering a seamless solution from doorstep to doorstep, with the benefit of two leading players in the travel space – Jet Airways and Uber.

Guests booking their flights on the app and using Uber for the first time will be also benefit from a discount across their first three rides by using the promo code JETUBER.

Jayaraj Shanmugam, Chief Commercial Officer, Jet Airways, said, "Our partnership with Uber for a comfortable and seamless travel experience between their homes or offices and the airport, reflects our ambition to leverage technology for enhancing our guest experience. More importantly, it is also a meeting of minds, where two leading, technology savvy and innovation-driven organisations have joined hands with an objective to create and promote new and fulfilling travel experiences for their guests in the long term. The association is especially meaningful since both Jet Airways and Uber have substantially similar guest profiles and needs, which will facilitate greater collaboration."

Madhu Kannan, Chief Business Officer, Uber India & Emerging markets said, "We are excited to partner with Jet Airways to make traveling in India even more seamless. Through this partnership, Jet Airways' guests across 29 cities will be able to request their Uber when they book their flight. That removes any last-minute hassles when heading to the airport and makes for a smooth arrival in your destination city. Uber is all about making travel easy and convenient, and this partnership exemplifies that."
