Jet Airways will soon introduce its first non-stop flight between New Delhi and Riyadh. In addition to that, the carrier will also deploy additional frequencies on other routes too such as Mumbai-Riyadh, Mumbai-Kuwait, Delhi-Doha, and Delhi-Dammam. It will deepen the connectivity between key Indo-Gulf cities.
These new non-stop flights will commence from 29th of October, 2017. These will connect Bengaluru and Chennai to the airline’s gateways in Amsterdam and Paris. The main focus of the carrier is to connect more and more cities, especially in the South of the country to destinations in Europe and North America.
Jet Airways is the very first airline to operate flights on these routes and also introduce the third daily for the Mumbai-London sector. This will offer a greater choice of convenient connections to other European cities and destinations in North America.
Recently, the airline has also introduced the pre-order duty-free service through which the passengers can enjoy the pre-order service from a range of international brands at the airline’s website for delivery onboard.
The new intercontinental services to Amsterdam and Paris will operate in codeshare with KLM, Delta, and Air France. The Frequent Flyer programmes’ members of the codeshare partners – JetPrivilege, Flying Blue, and SkyMiles can easily redeem points on each other.
For a relaxed and enjoyable flying experience, the airline will deploy its Airbus A330 aircraft on the Chennai-Paris and Bengaluru-Amsterdam routes. Features of Airbus A330 aircraft include a spacious cabin with ergonomically-designed seats, more legroom, lie-flat beds in Premiere, in-flight entertainment, a menu of fine-dining choices and more. All these facilities are associated with the long-haul international travel – together with the airline’s acclaimed spirit of Indian hospitality.
The airline is also planning to add more routes, especially the Mumbai-London Heathrow and well as Delhi-Singapore due to growing demand. This will enhance the connectivity and provide greater choice for guests traveling between North India, United Kingdom, and South East Asia.
Over the last few years, an annual growth of nearly 10 percent can be witnessed in air travel between India and the United Kingdom.
Through this new flight, Jet Airways can provide onward connectivity over London Heathrow to North America along with its codeshare partners (Delta Air Lines and Virgin Atlantic). This will include around 14 destinations which include Atlanta, Miami, Boston, Newark, Los Angeles, Detroit, Minneapolis, New York, Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Salt Lake City and Washington DC.
To provide better services and facilities, the airline will deploy its biggest aircraft i.e. Boeing 777-300ER. It supports three-class configuration including its award-winning ‘First Class’ Private Suites, 180° lie-flat beds for Business travelers and ergonomically designed Economy seating on the new frequency.
Jayaraj Shanmugam (Chief Commercial Officer of Jet Airways) stated that “Jet Airways’ network will see new introductions, in Europe and the Gulf that will strengthen our commitment to provide our guests with wider choice, convenience and connectivity over our hubs in Mumbai and Delhi and onwards onto our international network, with our codeshare partners.”
