American Airlines issued this statement about a new codeshare partner:

  • American Airlines and IndiGo announce a codeshare agreement, making it easier than ever for customers to travel to India.
  • American’s customers will have access to 29 new routes from Bengaluru and Delhi.
  • AAdvantage members will earn miles when traveling on American codeshare flights operated by IndiGo.

American Airlines is opening new doors across India this fall thanks to a new codeshare agreement with IndiGo, India’s leading airline.

The agreement, announced today, will place American’s code on 29 of IndiGo’s domestic routes in India, providing a convenient option for American Airlines customers arriving on the carrier’s new Bengaluru (BLR) and Delhi (DEL), India, flights. The codeshare, which will require U.S. and Indian governments’ approvals, is expected to begin in October, as American launches new service between New York (JFK) and DEL on Oct. 31 and between Seattle (SEA) and BLR on Jan. 4, 2022.

IndiGo, India’s largest airline by number of passengers carried, is based in Gurgaon, Haryana, India. With its fleet of 275+ aircraft, the airline operates more than 1,100 daily flights, connecting 70 domestic destinations and 24 international destinations. Since its founding in 2006, IndiGo’s 23,000 employees have professionally served more than 300 million customers.
