Taking another industry-first initiative, Jet Airways, India’s premier international airline, announced a partnership with Airbnb - the world’s leading community-driven hospitality company. The partnership will allow Jet Airways to offer a wide spectrum of rapidly growing, global hospitality choices to its guests from India, strengthening its portfolio of choices for stay that the carrier currently offers its guests.
The partnership will not only offer a strong and differentiated value to Jet Airways’ guests, but also give momentum to the growth of Airbnb’s footprint in the Indian market by establishing a deeper connect with the new-age Indian traveller, who is increasingly seeking unique and interesting experiences while travelling both in India as well as around the world.
Jayaraj Shanmugam, Chief Commercial Officer, Jet Airways
An increasing number of Indian travellers are embracing the fresh and highly personalised experiences that a platform like Airbnb offers. Our focus on being innovative and offering differentiated travel experiences enables us to anticipate the changing needs of our guests and recognize trends much earlier than the market, thus allowing us to offer exciting travel related initiatives. We are delighted to be the first Indian airline to partner Airbnb, and look forward to creating more of such innovative experiences for our guests.
Amanpreet Bajaj, Country Manager – India, Airbnb
Airbnb’s philosophy is centered on providing unique experiences to modern day travellers, who seek newer and more interesting ways to travel. Indian travellers have become more decisive and are keen to break away from conventional means of travel and accommodation. Airbnb has been committed to building local partnerships which enable us to strengthen our connect with the Indian audience. With this partnership, Jet Airways fliers who are also Airbnb travellers will be able to enjoy the added-value they receive from being associated with two dynamic brands.
