Jet Airways to operate wide-body planes on Mumbai-Delhi route

In its bid to increase capacity on the busy routes, second largest carrier Jet Airways today said it will deploy wide-body A330s on Delhi-Mumbai and Delhi-Kolkata sectors from October 30.
The airline also announced a new direct flight between Delhi and Kochi, apart from two additional frequencies between Delhi and Kolkata and Bengaluru and Kolkata.
The airline, however, did not specify how many narrow-bodies the wide-body planes will replace.
"Beginning October 30, Jet Airways will expand its wide-body (Airbus A330s) wings with 9W 346/362 on the Mumbai-Delhi and with 9W 907/946 on the Delhi-Kolkata routes, which will significantly boost our capacity on these key sectors," Jet said in a statement.
In fact, introducing the A330s will nearly double its current capacity on the Delhi-Kolkata-Delhi route, it said.
Deploying A330s on domestic routes will allow Jet to offer a considerably luxurious and comfortable flying experience equivalent to international standards, including flat beds in its Premiere class, apart from offering greater legroom in the Economy class.
While Mumbai-Delhi wide-body flight (9W346) will leave at 0730 hrs, it will return Delhi (9W 362) at 1745 hrs.
It will also introduce a new non-stop flight (9W 911/912) to connect Kochi with Delhi, aside from additional frequencies connecting Bengaluru and Delhi with Kolkata.
