Jet Airways today announced the launch of its daily non-stop service from Bengaluru to Amsterdam from October 29. The A330 Airbus to Amsterdam is Jet Airways’ first  service to any European city from Bengaluru, the airline said. The airline company already has two flights to Amsterdam from Mumbai and Delhi. Announcing the launch, Chief Executive Officer of Jet Airways Vinay Dube said, “We are proud to introduce a new  flight 9W236 from Bengaluru to Amsterdam. It departs here 2.30 in the morning and arrives at 8.45. It is going to be an  Airbus A330 – A happy mix of both premier and economy seats.” Explaining the intention behind the launch, Dube said there there was a demand from people of Bengaluru for direct  connectivity to Europe. In response to the growing need and demand, the company  decided to start the service.

He said Jet Airways has tied up with many other airline companies to connect its consumers with the rest of India and rest of the world Europe. Alphonsus H M Stoelinga, Ambassador of the Netherlands  to India, said the growing Indian economy warranted increasing its business relationship with India. Recalling the Netherlands’ 400-year-old colonial  connection with India, Stoelinga said, “Today again India is a powerful economy in the world. Netherlands is the fourth  largest source of Foreign Direct Investment in India while  India is the fifth largest source of FDI in the Netherlands.”

Stoelinga pointed out that his country is a good  investment and tourist destination. He said Tata Steel has set up its head office in Amsterdam outside India. He said there is a 300 per cent increase in Indian companies setting up head offices in the Netherlands after the Brexit. Besides business opportunities, it is a preferred  destination for higher education.
