British Airways and IndiGo Forge a New Codeshare Partnership

In a significant development in the aviation industry, British Airways and IndiGo have announced a new codeshare partnership. This strategic alliance is set to enhance connectivity between the UK and India, offering improved travel options between Southeast Asia and Europe.


A New Era of Connectivity

Starting from October 12, 2023, this partnership will see British Airways adding its code to several destinations within IndiGo’s network. This move will provide access to eight destinations for British Airways customers traveling from London Heathrow via New Delhi or Mumbai. Notably, three of these destinations were previously unavailable to British Airways customers. The destinations include Amritsar, Kochi, Ahmedabad, Goa, Thiruvananthapuram, Kolkata, Rajkot (Hirasar), and Vadodara. This partnership will offer the convenience of booking the entire journey on a single ticket.

Benefits for Passengers

Passengers flying with IndiGo will benefit from a complimentary meal and British Airways’ generous baggage allowance in economy class. IndiGo operates a substantial domestic and regional network with A320 aircraft, ensuring a comfortable journey for passengers. British Airways currently operates 56 flights per week from India to London, exceeding pre-pandemic levels. The flights connect Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, and Hyderabad to London. Passengers traveling between Mumbai, Delhi, and Bangalore can experience the airline’s new Club Suite in business class, featuring direct-aisle access, enhanced privacy, and luxurious flat-bed seats.


Looking Ahead

This codeshare agreement marks a significant milestone in the aviation industry. It not only enhances connectivity between the UK and India but also offers improved travel options between Southeast Asia and Europe. As airlines continue to adapt to the changing dynamics of international travel post-pandemic, partnerships like these are likely to play a crucial role in shaping the future of aviation. It's an exciting time for passengers who can look forward to more seamless and convenient travel experiences.
