Jet Airways to commence daily JFK Intl-India services from October 28
10 October 2007
The flights to JFK will be the airline''s second daily flight connecting the city of New York with India. Jet had launched its first-ever transatlantic service with daily flights to and from New York''s Newark Liberty International Airport on August 5.
On September 5, it had also inaugurated services from India to Toronto.
"I think it''s fair to state that in the history of aviation," observed Goyal, "no airline has ever launched three new long-haul routes in a span of three months, and I am immensely proud of the dedication of the Jet Airways team that has made this possible."
All Jet Airways'' transatlantic flights are now being routed through the airline''s hub at Brussels International Airport enabling travellers to seamlessly connect between JFK, Newark and Toronto to and from Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai.
Jet Airways'' flights to/from both New York airports are operated by Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, which offer first class, première class and economy class services. Airbus A330-200 aircraft, with a two-class Première and Economy service, operate on flights to/from Toronto.
The airline offers unprecedented levels of luxury, privacy and comfort in the air, including First Class suites with the world''s longest airline beds, private closets, and dining tables for two with 23" flat-screens. Première (business) class pods offer what are considered the most comfortable business class seats in the sky that convert to 73"-long totally flat beds.
