American Airlines and IndiGo have launched a codeshare deal that permits the former to sell seats on the latter’s flights operating on Delhi-Bengaluru and Delhi-Mumbai routes, a report told on Thursday.

The agreement will place American’s code on 29 of IndiGo’s domestic routes in India, providing a convenient option for American Airlines customers coming on the carrier’s new Bengaluru (BLR) and Delhi (DEL), India, flights.
