Jet Airways to expand its domestic network

Indian carrier Jet Airways is to expand its domestic network after revealing plans to connect Indore to 14 cities across India.

The airline will introduce a total of 30 weekly services, taking the number of flights flying into and out of Indore to 206 a week.

Jet Airways said it is focusing on catering to the demand from emerging cities and Indore is fast shaping up as a “key pillar” in the airline’s pan-India network due to its central location and fast growing infrastructure.

The carrier will be the only airline to provide non-stop connectivity from Indore to a host of emerging markets and mini metros such as Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Vadodara, Jodhpur, Allahabad, Chandigarh, Lucknow, Nagpur and Pune.

Jet Airways will also provide non-stop connectivity from Indore to metros such as Kolkata and Hyderabad as well as its hubs in Mumbai, Delhi and Bengaluru as it looks to channel network traffic to its international network.

Senior vice president for worldwide sales and distribution, Raj Sivakumar said passenger traffic from Indore has grown more than 20 per cent in the last three years.

The carrier is also set to introduce a further 28 new flights in the coming month with a mix of non-stop and one-stop flights to strengthen the airline’s footprint, enabling it to meet the rising demand for domestic and international air travel in emerging cities.

The new services will also help connect guests with other cities including metros as well as the airline’s global network via its hubs in Mumbai, Delhi, and Bengaluru.

Jet Airways is set to commence flight operations between Chandigarh and Lucknow, Ahmedabad and Jodhpur as well as Vadodara and Jaipur – becoming the only airline in the country operating these routes.

The airline is also introducing additional frequencies on key existing routes, expanding non-stop capacity between Mumbai – Guwahati and Delhi – Bagdogra and providing additional one-stop connectivity on the Mumbai – Bagdogra and New Delhi – Guwahati routes.

Among other network enhancements, the schedule will see Jet Airways launch non-stop flights connecting Bengaluru with Lucknow, Indore with Kolkata, Kolkata with Chandigarh, Coimbatore with Hyderabad, Visakhapatnam with Mumbai and Delhi, reflecting the growing demand for its services to facilitate the travel aspirations of its guests.
