Jet Airways To Launch More International Routes
Wednesday, 24th September 2014 at 04:45am
Starting November 14, Ahmedabad, Goa and Lucknow will just be a flight away from Abu Dhabi, UAE.
Jet Airways has just confirmed the date for the simultaneous inaugural services between the burgeoning capital of the UAE and the three Indian cities. The direct service will provide travelers another option when traveling between these cities and the oil-rich emirate.
Abu Dhabi is one of the two major cultural and commercial centers of UAE where there is significant population of Indian expats working in various industries, most notably in the construction and oil industries.
Airport officials said that these Indian cities are growing in importance as business and tourism hubs in their own right which draw attention from both investors and leisure travelers alike. The direct service will surely encourage more tourists and business travelers from the Gulf to consider these cities as interesting destinations for leisure and business.
Transit travelers from India, in turn, will also enjoy the opportunity to get seamless connections from Abu Dhabi to various points in Europe and North America such as Paris, Frankfurt, Moscow, Brussels, Dublin, Dusseldorf, Manchester, Milan, Munich, Belgrade, Chicago, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. Flights to the above cities will be provided by Etihad Airways, which is the partner airline of Jet Airways. The UAE flag carrier is a major foreign investor in the latter.
Jet Airways is also planning to launch a direct service from Pune to Abu Dhabi as well but no further details were available.
The introduction of these new direct services will further expand the airline's market in the Gulf region offering smooth connectivity between India and the Gulf countries onto Europe, North America and even Africa.
