Jet Konnect launches 5 new services

Jet Airways Konnect, Jet Airways' new all-economy service, has announced that it has enhanced its network to include five new services from Wednesday, including four new services from Kolkata.

The airline will enhance air connectivity within northeast India with the introduction of services on the Kolkata-Jorhat, Kolkata-Agartala, Kolkata-Guwahati and Guwahati-Agartala sectors, while linking two key cities in eastern and southern India with the introduction of a new Kolkata-Bengaluru service.

Jet Airways Konnect currently links four major metros, Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru and Chennai, to several destinations across India, including Kochi, Pune, Hyderabad, Coimbatore, Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Bhopal and Amritsar.

Wolfgang Prock-Schauer, chief executive officer, Jet Airways, said, ''There is latent demand for a quality, all-economy service on several key domestic routes. With the successful introduction of Jet Airways Konnect's new service, and based on strong demand, we are confident that our new flights are in perfect sync with prevailing passenger needs, and will be very well received.''

The Jet Airways Konnect service currently operates a fleet of six ATR 72-500 and two Boeing 737-800 aircraft on key domestic routes across India.
