Jet Airways, Uber partnership heralds door-to-door travel options in India

International airline Jet Airways has announced a strategic association with ride-hailing major Uber.

Jayaraj Shanmugam, Chief Commercial Officer, Jet Airways, said, “Our partnership with Uber reflects our ambition to leverage technology for enhancing our guest experience. It is also a meeting of minds which is especially meaningful since both Jet Airways and Uber have substantially similar guest profiles and needs.”

The airline said their partnership with Uber will offer passengers greater choice in travelling to/from the airport once they have booked a ticket on the Jet Airways app, as they will have the option of booking an Uber ride at the same time.

Guests booking their flights on the app and using Uber for the first time will also be eligible for a discount of INR 150 across their first three rides by using the promo code JETUBER.

“We are excited to partner with Jet Airways, whose guests across 29 cities will be able to request their Uber when they book their flight,” Madhu Kannan, Chief Business Officer, Uber India and Emerging markets, said.

The cab booking feature will be available to all Jet Airways’ guests who book flights using the airline’s app in cities where Uber currently operates in India.
