IndiGo and British Airways announce new codeshare partnership

IndiGo and British Airways have announced the signing of a new codeshare partnership.

Through this partnership, which sees British Airways add its code onto a couple of destinations across IndiGo’s network, passengers can enjoy improved connectivity and ease of travel between India and the United Kingdom for travel from 12th October 2023 when this partnership goes live.

We are excited to announce our codeshare agreement with British Airways. This partnership expands the choices available to British Airways customers for journeys to/from London Heathrow, using IndiGo’s extensive network in India. This step to provide seamless connectivity will not only support trade and
commerce between the two countries but also offer convenient travel options to students and tourists. With burgeoning demand for international travel, we will continue to enhance international connectivity and
remain committed to our promise of providing on-time, affordable, courteous, and hassle-free travel experiences to our customers.

British Airways has been flying to India since 1924, making it one of our longest-served and most valued destinations. Our partnership with IndiGo means that customers will be able to book their entire journey on one ticket, allowing seamless travel all the way from London to their final destination, offering more choice and flexibility for customers.

said Neil Chernoff, Director of Network and Alliances, British Airways.

The agreement means that customers traveling, for example from Rajkot to London, or transiting through London Heathrow (or vice versa) will be able to connect to their destination on a single ticket.

All British Airways passengers traveling onwards with IndiGo will be able to enjoy a complimentary meal and the UK carrier’s generous baggage allowance in economy via codeshare for flights to India – two checked bags up to 23 kilos per person.
