INDIA: Jet Airways To Connect To Kuwait, Jeddah, Bengaluru and Chennai
Airbus A330s will be deployed on routes connecting Mumbai with Kuwait, Jeddah, Bengaluru and Chennai this month, in some cases boosting capacity by 50%. The two-class A330s feature 18 flat-bed seats in business class and 236 seats in economy.
“The introduction of wide-body services on our key domestic routes not only allows Jet Airways to scale up capacity in response to increase in demand but also guarantees guests a superior flying experience,” said Jet’s chief commercial officer, Jayaraj Shanmugam. “The A330… is designed with a spacious cabin, greater leg-room, lie-flat beds in Premiere and all the comforts usually associated with long-haul international travel.”
The new wide-body service between Mumbai and Chennai will begin on 15 January 2017, followed by Mumbai-Jeddah and Mumbai-Bengaluru on 16 January and Mumbai-Kuwait on 18 January.
Last year, the airline began operating its A330s on the Mumbai-Delhi and Delhi-Kolkata routes.
