(SFC) Korean Airlines, an official sponsor for the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Games, has announced a new code share agreement and frequent flyer program with Jet Airways. The airlines operates over twenty international routes from the cities of India and is one of the nation's premier airlines.

Ramping up to the 2018 Games Korean Airlines is continuing to amplify its network and travel opportunities. Code sharing is through an aviation business partnership where a flight managed by one airline is marketed together with its airline partners. This offers travelers more options through the use of multiple networks with one reservation.

Beginning March 1st, the airlines will offer more flight options to passengers travelling from India to Incheon, Seoul, through gateway airports in Asian from destinations such as Singapore and Bangkok. The service will also enhance Jet Airways' daily service to Delhi plus add increased connectivity and frequency between Incheon, Seoul and cities in India.

Currently Korean Air has code share partnerships with 34 airlines on 397 worldwide routes and will continue to work with its partners in order to offer seamless travel and the most convenient schedules for passengers.
