Guests booking their flights on the app and using Uber for the first time will be also benefit from a discount of INR 150 across their first three rides by using the promo code JETUBER.

Jayaraj Shanmugam, Chief Commercial Officer, Jet Airways, said, “Our partnership with Uber for a comfortable and seamless travel experience between their homes or offices and the airport, reflects our ambition to leverage technology for enhancing our guest experience. More importantly, it is also a meeting of minds, where two leading, technology savvy and innovation-driven organisations have joined hands with an objective to create and promote new and fulfilling travel experiences for their guests in the long term. The association is especially meaningful since both Jet Airways and Uber have substantially similar guest profiles and needs, which will facilitate greater collaboration.”

Through this partnership, Jet Airways’ guests across 29 cities will be able to request their Uber when they book their flight.

Uber is all about making travel easy and convenient, and this partnership exemplifies that.”
The cab booking feature will be available to all Jet Airways’ guests in the cities where Uber currently operates in India while booking their travel itinerary with the airline on the Jet Airways app.
