SriLankan Airlines and Royal Jordanian seal codeshare deal
SriLankan Airlines has concluded a codeshare agreement with Royal Jordanian (RJ), which will permit SriLankan to sell on RJ on their three weekly flights between Colombo and Amman.
The codeshare is effective from August 26. Under this agreement, SriLankan will be the marketing carrier and will place its marketing carrier code between the Amman and Colombo route operated by RJ.
SriLankan Airlines’ CEO, Kapila Chandrasena, said, “Royal Jordanian becomes SriLankan’s sixth codeshare partner, and the first that is a full-fledged oneworld member. We look forward to a future that will give us more opportunities together with Royal Jordanian, where we will build on the synergies of the two networks and explore avenues of cooperation.”
RJ President/CEO, Amer Hadidi, noted that RJ is glad to partner with one of Asia’s fastest growing airlines acknowledged for its high-class service and reliability; particularly that it will be a full-fledged oneworld member next year. “Our partnership will also allow us to boost the oneworld global network in a region of high air travel demand,” he said.
This co-operation between SriLankan and RJ will be expanded whereby the two airlines will have codeshare operations beyond Colombo and Amman, providing more travel options to their passengers.
