Milestone for Jet Airways
With the induction of the Airbus 340-300 E into its fleet, Jet Airways has become the first airline in India to put this aircraft type into service on its long-haul routes from Mumbai to London.
This is the first of three A340-300E aircraft which were inducted into Jet Airways’ fleet.
A large number of business travellers originating in the Middle East region need to travel to India and UK in the same trip. Jet Airways now offer a good circle trip option, where they can travel from here to India on any airline, connect onto Jet Airways for the India to London flight, and then return directly back to the Gulf and Middle East from London on any airline.
This new overseas operations will also be very useful for holiday travellers from this region who regularly travel homebound to India in the summer months. They can consider a holiday in London after spending some time at home in India.
Very special fares have also been introduced. The fares for Mumbai-London-Mumbai start at $617 excluding taxes which can be booked and purchased through any of our travel agency partners in the Gulf and Middle East region.
