DALLAS — Air India (AI) and Alaska Airlines (AS) have entered into an interline partnership that allows AI passengers to have seamless connections to and from 32 destinations across the United States, Mexico, and Canada.
The agreement between the airlines includes bilateral interlining, which enables both airlines to offer tickets for travel on each other’s networks. Additionally, they have agreed upon a Special Prorate Agreement, which allows AI to offer ‘through fares’ for routes covering AS’ network.
A ‘through-fare’ is the fare charged from the point of boarding to a destination that is not on the current route.
