Jet Airways will expand its Gulf operations in August with the launch of new flights to Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
On 7 August 2016, the Indian carrier will commence daily services connecting Hyderabad with Dammam and Mangaluru with Sharjah. Both routes will be served using a Boeing 737 aircraft.
“Jet Airways is delighted to offer these new flight options and great service to travellers to the Arabian Gulf. With economic ties between India and the Gulf region flourishing, Jet Airways recognises the need to provide more flight options to its passengers,” said Gaurang Shetty, wholetime director of Jet Airways.
On the Hyderabad-Dammam route, flights depart the Indian city at 2015 and arrive in the Saudi port at 2230. The return flight then leaves Dammam at 2330 and arrives back in Hyderabad at 0600.
The Mangaluru-Sharjah route will see flights depart the Indian coastal city at 1145 and arrive in the UAE hub at 1145. The return services then leave Sharjah at 1245 and touch down in Mangaluru at 1755.
Dammam will become the second Gulf city Jet serves from Hyderabad, after Abu Dhabi, and the new Sharjah flight will complement the airline’s existing flights from Mangaluru to Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
