Jet Airways will expand its operations in Singapore next month with the launch of a new direct flight from Bengaluru.
Commencing on 14 December 2016, this new service will operate daily using a single-aisle Boeing 737 aircraft. The route will open up a series of new options for travellers in southern India, with connectivity to cities including Hyderabad, Mangaluru, Coimbatore and Thiruvananthapuram, via Bengaluru.
The new services will depart Bengaluru’s Kempegowda International Airport at 1110 and arrive in Singapore at 1810. The return flight will leave Changi Airport at 1915 and arrive back in Bengaluru at 2115.
Jet’s chief commercial officer, Jayaraj Shanmugam, said the new route would enhance connectivity between the ASEAN region and India.
“Both Bengaluru and Singapore are popular destinations for information technology, tourism, trade and investment, therefore it was only logical for Jet Airways’ to facilitate the same for the Indian traveller,” Shanmugam said. “We are confident that this new flight would prove equally popular with our guests.”
Currently, Jet operates daily flights from Mumbai, Delhi and Chennai to Singapore.
