The agreement will enable both Jet Airways and ANA passengers to fly between Tokyo and Osaka to various points across India on connecting flights operated by both carriers.

Jet Airways will place its code on ANA's flights from Hong Kong to Tokyo and Osaka, and between Bangkok and Tokyo.

In return, ANA will place its code on Jet Airways flights from Hong Kong to Mumbai and Delhi, Bangkok to Mumbai, Delhi and Kolkata, Singapore to Mumbai, Delhi and Chennai, and on domestic Indian routes from Mumbai to Delhi, Chennai and Kolkata.
