Mumbai: Jet Airways on Tuesday said it has expanded its domestic network during this monsoon by introducing 14 new direct, non-stop flights to emerging cities in domestic India. This augmentation of domestic services between these cities comes on back of the rising demand for aviation services between these fast-growing cities, reflecting their economic progress, it said.
The airline has been witnessing steady growth in traffic, primarily in northern India, especially between cities such as Jaipur, Lucknow, Chandigarh, Dehradun, Udaipur and Indore. The new flights will deepen Jet Airways’ domestic footprint, helping it support and facilitate travel aspirations of its guests from these regions, it said.
Claiming it to be an industry first, the Mumbai-based full service airline has introduced direct, return non-stop flights from Indore to Ahmedabad and Jaipur. It has also commenced new, direct non-stop flights between Delhi and Indore, Lucknow, Jaipur as well as connecting Jaipur with Udaipur and Lucknow.
Additionally, it has also introduced 11 direct, one-stop through flights between Delhi and Silchar, Dehradun and Jaipur, Chandigarh and Dehradun, Chandigarh and Lucknow, and between Indore and Lucknow, “in yet another maiden initiative," it said.
