The finance ministers, central bank governors and other dignitaries who attended the fourth ministerial conference of G-20 in the Capital last week, chose the Jet Airways to fly to the city of the Taj and back on November 24. The group consisted of over 83 members belonging to the developed and the developing nations.

The Jet aircraft, a next-generation Boeing 737-700, was chartered by the government in its capacity as the chairman of the G-20s fourth ministerial summit. It can be recalled that Jet Airways was also chartered to fly the White House Press Corps during the then US president Bill Clintons India visit, and also the high-powered Indo-US business council delegation for their rendezvous with Mr Clinton in Hyderabad in March 2000. Former Japanese prime minister Yoshiro Mori during his visit in August 2000 had also flown to Agra on a special Jet chartered flight.
