Jet Airways has revealed plans to almost double its capacity on two key domestic routes.
On 30 October 2016, the Indian carrier will start to deploy its twin-aisle Airbus A330 aircraft on flights connecting Delhi with Mumbai and Kolkata. These aircraft will replace the single-aisle Boeing 737s that currently serve both routes.
In addition, Jet is planning to add more flights on the Delhi-Kolkata and Bengaluru-Kolkata routes, as well as launching a new direct Delhi-Kochi service.
“The Indian domestic sector is witnessing breakneck growth in demand,” said Jayaraj Shanmugam, Jet’s chief commercial officer. “The new flights and additional frequencies in our winter schedule further strengthen our robust domestic network, and offer our guests additional choice and flexibility to plan their travel.
“Deployment of wide body in domestic sectors provides us additional capacity on these key routes,” he added.
The new A330s will also offer domestic passengers the chance to book Jet’s flat-bed business class seats.
