Jet Airways Commences Non-Stop Mumbai-Manchester Flights

Jet Airways commenced its new non-stop service between Mumbai and Manchester on Monday, the carrier said in a press release. This new service is the first non-stop service connecting India, via Mumbai, with Manchester and the fifth direct service between India and the United Kingdom, the carrier further said.  With this launch, Manchester has become 21st international destination on Jet Airways' network. The commencement of flights on the new routes by Jet Airways comes amid high competition in the country's civil aviation market.
The airline's first flight to Manchester (9W 130) departed from Mumbai at 2:30 am and arrived at Manchester's Terminal 2 at 7:55 am. The return flight (9W 129) will depart from Manchester at 9:35 am and is scheduled to arrive at Mumbai's Terminal 2 at 12:40 am, Jet Airways said in its statement on Monday.

Jet Airways will also commence non-stop flights between Pune and Singapore this winter, it said. The carrier will also introduce additional flights on select existing routes - Delhi-Singapore, Delhi-Dubai, Delhi-Bagdogra and Bengaluru-Pune - to meet growing travel demand.
