Indian low-cost carrier SpiceJet has recently signed an interline agreement with Hahn Air.

By now combining two Hahn Air solutions, SpiceJet benefits from a comprehensive distribution set-up that will give the airline truly global coverage in the Global Distribution Systems (GDSs). In addition, SpiceJet takes advantage of interlining opportunities within the leading Hahn Air partner network encompassing more than 350 airlines.

SpiceJet agreement

Since 2016, SpiceJet has already been relying on Hahn Air’s H1-Air product to gain access to the GDS world under the H1 code. The H1-Air product by Hahn Air enables airlines to sell their flights through 100,000 travel agents in 190 markets. Now, SpiceJet is elevating their indirect distribution strategy by means of an interline agreement with Hahn Air, thereby making their flights available under their own SG code for all travel agents using the Amadeus GDS. Hahn Air will act as the validating carrier and all SpiceJet flights can be issued on the insolvency-safe Hahn Air ticket.

Advancing distribution strategy

“We are proud to welcome SpiceJet into our portfolio of interline partners”, says Adriana C. Carrelli, Vice President Airline Business at Hahn Air. “By combining two Hahn Air products, SpiceJet is advancing their distribution strategy, tapping into new markets and expanding their customer reach. We are looking forward to contributing to SpiceJet’s business success and to supporting them in their future growth.”

Shilpa Bhatia, chief commercial officer, SpiceJet, said: “We are delighted to partner with Hahn Air for distribution of our flights to over 190 markets that will help international passengers to seamlessly travel across various parts of India and beyond with ease. The interline agreement with Hahn Air and the strong distribution network of 350 airlines will positively benefit SpiceJet to increase its global reach under its own SG code.”
