Jet Airways Launches Direct Flights to Dubai From Mumbai and Delhi

Jet Airways has launched daily direct flights from the Indian cities of Mumbai and Delhi to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

The airline said that Dubai will be the sixth destination in its Gulf network and the second in the United Arab Emirates. Jet Airways will deploy Airbus 330-200 aircraft on these routes.

Jet Airways's Dubai flights will complement its daily services to Abu Dhabi, Kuwait, Bahrain, Muscat and Doha from various gateway points in India. To commemorate its maiden foray into Dubai, the airline has introduced return and one-way economy class fares of INR11,495 and INR8,000 respectively, and return premiere fares of INR24,940 on all its services to Dubai.

Wolfgang Prock-Schauer, CEO of Jet Airways, said: "Jet Airways is delighted to fly to Dubai starting with a full complement of passengers on its maiden flight. With a large number of Indians living and working in the Gulf, flights to these sectors consistently register high load factors."
