Jet Airways and Uber Join Hands for Smarter Travel

Jet Airways, India’s full-service international airline, has started a strategic collaboration with online transportation network company, Uber, offering travellers a seamless solution from doorstep to doorstep when transporting between the airport and their hotel.

With this first-of-its-kind initiative in the Indian aviation space, the airline will partner with Uber to offer its customers greater choice by facilitating their travel to and from the airport once they have booked a ticket on the Jet Airways app. Guests booking their flights on the app and using Uber for the first time will also benefit from a discount across their first three rides.

“Through this partnership, Jet Airways’ guests across 29 cities will be able to request their Uber when they book their flight,” says Madhu Kannan, chief business officer, Uber India, and emerging markets. “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.”

The Uber booking feature will be available to all Jet Airways guests in the Indian cities where Uber currently operates while they book their travel itinerary with the airline on the Jet Airways app.
