Jet will launch a dedicated cargo airline

Jet Airways is planning to launch a dedicated cargo airline. Chairman Naresh Goyal had disclosed in New Delhi last week that the airline was in discussions with international players for a possible tie-up.

Jet Airways is also planning to connect several cities in Europe and the USA, including Zurich, Milan, Dusseldorf, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Ultimately, it aims to connect to 50 destinations in Europe, apart from Iran, Tel Aviv, Durban and Johannesburg, he said.

Jet has also applied to the civil aviation ministry to fly to Dubai, Muscat and Abu Dhabi from January 2008.
