Jet Airways, India’s international airline, is set to expand its operations to Dubai with the launch of new frequencies from its hubs in Mumbai and Delhi.
With effect from March 1, 2016, Jet Airways will launch a sixth daily frequency from Mumbai to Dubai. With the introduction of this new flight, Jet Airways will offer the maximum number of daily flights between the two cities.
Jet Airways will also launch a third daily frequency between Delhi and Dubai, starting March 27, 2016 offering guests a greater choice when travelling between India’s national capital and the Emirate.
With the launch of the new frequencies, Jet Airways will operate a total of 11 daily flights between India and Dubai. This includes flights from Kochi and Mangalore.
Dubai is a key destination for business and leisure travel from India. With its strategic location, Dubai has become a hub for many global businesses and a go-to destination for Indian professionals. Jet Airways’ new flights commence operations at a time when India has strengthened its position as one of UAE’s largest trading partners and the bilateral trade is at an all time high.
This strong connect is reflected in the Mumbai-Dubai and Delhi-Dubai sectors becoming the busiest international air routes from India.
Mr. Gaurang Shetty, Senior Vice President – Commercial, Jet Airways, said : “Jet Airways is delighted to introduce additional frequencies from Mumbai and Delhi to Dubai providing greater choice and convenience to our guests on these popular routes. Dubai is amongst our most popular destinations for business and leisure travellers and it was only fitting to increase capacity to this key market. The new frequencies will enable Jet Airways to offer guests a wide choice of departure times to / from Dubai and convenient domestic connections via our hubs in Mumbai and Delhi.”
Jet Airways will deploy Boeing 737-800 aircraft on the new services.
