Jet Airways is set to further expand its operations between India and Oman with the launch of a new daily flight from March 21 between Delhi and Muscat. This service will offer connections to northern India, SAARC and ASEAN regions to Oman over Delhi. The addition of this new flight from the airline’s strategic hub in Delhi is said to further strengthen the airline’s growing international network and enhance flight connectivity from Northern India to the West Asia region.With this launch, Jet Airways will have a total of four daily flights between India and Muscat. This includes flights from Mumbai, Kochi and Thiruvananthapuram.
With India and Oman being linked by historical martime trade link and the important role of the Indian expatriate community in the development of Oman, this connectivity by the new service will provide greater opportunity for expansion of business and tourism traffic between the two countries. “It is indeed a proud moment for us at Jet Airways to launch our maiden international flight between Delhi and Muscat. This is a significant milestone for enhancing the strong ties between India and the Sultanate of Oman. With the launch of this flight, guests from Northern India, SAARC and ASEAN regions will have the option of travelling to Oman via Delhi,” said Gaurang Shetty, senior vice president (commercial), Jet Airways.
The airline will use a Boeing 737-800 aircraft on these new services, offering its premiere and economy guests an in-flight product which provides class, service, delicious cuisine and convenient schedules.
