Jet Airways to discontinue Dubai–Mangaluru direct flight from Dec 5?

Mangaluru: Jet Airways will discontinue its daily direct flight service in Dubai – Mangaluru route from the first week of December, say some reports.
According to some passengers, who booked December ticket in advance, they have been advised by the airlines about the cancellation of direct flight. Reportedly they have been provided with alternate Dubai- Mumbai–Mangaluru flight service from December
It is not yet confirmed if the opening of Kannur airport from December 9 is the reason to cancel the Mangaluru-Dubai route or the recent developments in Jet Airways which is facing tougher economic conditions.
When contacted, Jet Airways officials said that they are not ready to confirm the news with a short reply, 'We will revert back'.
The second half of December is normally a busy schedule for all airlines, and every year flights are fully- booked from Middle East region on account of Christmas holidays. Many passengers plan their travel at least 3-6 months in advance. If cancellation news is true, then it is going to affect several passengers.
Meantime, other airlines like Air India Express and SpiceJet that are operating daily from Dubai are expected to raise their ticket price during December, duly taking advantage of cancellation of Jet Airways.
As per Jet Airways online portal, it is clear that, from December 5, 2018, bookings are available from Dubai to Mangaluru only via Mumbai.
