Jet Airways expands services to Europe, Middle East
The Indian carrier is introducing new non-stop flights to Saudi Arabia and Europe and adding frequencies to London, Singapore and the Middle East.
Jet Airways is introducing three new international services to its network this winter, while reinforcing six existing routes with additional frequencies.
The carrier will introduce its first non-stop service between the capital cities of New Delhi and Riyadh. It will also deploy additional frequencies on the Mumbai-Riyadh, Mumbai-Kuwait, Delhi-Doha and Delhi-Dammam sectors to enhance connectivity between key Indo-Gulf cities.
Effective 29th October, new non-stop flights will commence connecting Bengaluru and Chennai to the airline’s gateways in Amsterdam and Paris, respectively, as part of the carrier’s strategy to connect more cities, especially in the South of the country to destinations in Europe and North America. The airline will be the first to operate flights on these routes which, along with a third daily flight on the Mumbai-London sector, will provide a greater choice of connections to other European cities and destinations in North America.
The new intercontinental services to Amsterdam and Paris will operate in codeshare with KLM, Air France and Delta Air Lines.
Jet Airways is also adding new frequencies on certain select routes, including Mumbai-London Heathrow and Delhi-Singapore. The new Heathrow flight, will be Jet Airways’ third daily frequency between Mumbai and London, a first by any Indian airline. This new flight will enable Jet Airways to offer onward connectivity to North America with codeshare partners Delta Air Lines and Virgin Atlantic.
