Jet Airways heads North

Hard on the heels of its new African connection (see this issue), Manchester Airport is gaining the first non-stop service linking it with Mumbai. Flights will be operated by Jet Airways and are scheduled to start on 5 November.

The airline will deploy a 254-seat wide-body Airbus A330-200 operating four days every week on Mondays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Manchester will become the 21st international addition to the Jet Airways network and with the introduction of the flight, the carrier’s fifth non-stop service to and from the UK, the airline will also become the largest carrier between Mumbai and the UK.

The service will complement Jet Airways’ thrice daily non-stops between Mumbai and Heathrow and daily service between Delhi and Heathrow and comes one year after the airline launched new international services to Amsterdam, Paris and London from Bengaluru, Chennai and Mumbai.

CEO Vinay Dube said: “This new chapter in our decade-long relationship with the UK will bring Manchester into our global network, reinforcing our footprint and expanding our connectivity.

“We are offering more than 8,000 seats a week, making it increasingly convenient for business travellers between India and the UK and deepening commerce as well as tourism ties between the two countries".
