Jet Airways has announced the launch of daily non-stop services between India and Amsterdam, its new European gateway which is ideally located for convenient onward connections.
With effect from March 27th, 2016, Jet Airways will operate two daily non-stop flights to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, one each from its home hubs in Mumbai and New Delhi.
Jet Airways will also operate a daily flight from Toronto to Amsterdam. Schedules of all three flights have been planned to allow quick and convenient connections between India and Toronto over Amsterdam.
Jet Airways will deploy its modern Airbus A330-300 aircraft with 34 seats in Premiere (Business Class) and 259 seats in Economy on these routes.
Amsterdam is one of the great cities of the world and has emerged as a top financial centre and tourism destination in Europe.
India’s trade relations with the Netherlands go back over 400 years and have continued to prosper in the modern age.
Cramer Ball, chief executive, Jet Airways, said: “We are delighted to announce the launch of new services to Amsterdam.
“This is a significant step for Jet Airways and demonstrates our continuous endeavour to provide greater choice and better connections for our guests.
“Jet Airways’ two daily flights from India to Amsterdam will facilitate further growth in business and tourism between India and the Netherlands.”
With the objective of providing convenient connections for its guests to key destinations across Europe and North America over Amsterdam, Jet Airways has entered into a strategic agreement with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and Delta Air Lines.
Under this agreement and subject to government and regulatory approvals, Jet Airways will codeshare to 30 European destinations for travel between India and Europe via Amsterdam.
Key destinations include Brussels, Berlin, Copenhagen, Munich, Madrid, Geneva and Vienna operated by KLM.
Jet Airways will also codeshare with KLM and Delta on 11 destinations between India and the United States and Canada including New York JFK, Newark, Washington DC, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Vancouver and Montreal.
The codeshare partnership will give Jet Airways guests a single ticket, through check-in of bags to their final destinations and co-ordinated customer service at airports.
