Mumbai: Jet Airways, India’s premier international airline, has enhanced its connectivity with the United Arab Emirates, through the introduction of a fifth daily service between the two financial hubs of Mumbai and Dubai. This is the fifth daily frequency being introduced between the two cities and is expected to provide guests with the convenience of an additional service.
The new service will complement the four flights already being operated by Jet Airways on the high demand Mumbai-Dubai route and the airline plans to commence operations effective October 14, 2014.
From October 14th until October 25th, flight 9W 580 will depart Mumbai at 0200hrs (Local time) and arrive Dubai at 0340 hrs (LT).
Mr. Gaurang Shetty, Senior Vice President, Commercial, Jet Airways, said, "We are happy to introduce a fifth service on the popular Mumbai-Dubai route, which has seen a steady growth in traffic be it tourists or business travellers. This flight would provide easy connectivity for guests, especially from western India, flying to and from the United Arab Emirates. This new service too is expected to be equally popular with travellers. Jet Airways has already established itself as a prestigious brand in the intensely competitive Indo-Gulf sector in a relatively short span of time, on accord of its globally acclaimed service excellence.”
The new service from Mumbai will now complement the airline's existing daily Gulf operations to Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Dubai, Doha, Kuwait, Muscat and Sharjah, as well as to Jeddah, Riyadh and Dammam from several cities in India.
