Jet Airways registers fifth consecutive month of strong growth

Jet Airways registered its fifth consecutive month of strong growth with the announcement of its results for February 2010, with a 31% growth in international traffic year on year.

The Indian aviation market leader has been sustaining its seat factor for its international operations at over 80% for five consecutive months with the February 2010 figure standing at an impressive 82%, reflecting continued high demand for Jet Airways’ award-winning product.

Jet Airways continued to drive growth momentum across the business, even in a traditionally lean month. Domestic passenger traffic grew by 22% compared to the same period last year whilst JetLite, Jet Airways’ all-economy subsidiary, registered a 10% growth. The airline is set to sustain stronger growth with its strategic expansion programme, introducing new routes in the international and domestic sectors.

New developments include a daily non-stop flight with a new Airbus 330-200 aircraft from Mumbai to Johannesburg from 14 April 2010, the airline’s first service to Africa.
