Mumbai- based full-service airline Jet Airways on Monday announced Amsterdam as its new European gateway. As a result, the airline also launched daily non-stop flights to Amsterdam from Mumbai and Delhi.
With effect from March 27, Jet Airways will operate two daily non-stop flights to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, one each from its home hubs in Mumbai and New Delhi. Jet Airways will also operate a daily flight from Toronto to Amsterdam.
Jet Airways will deploy its modern Airbus A330-300 aircraft with 34 seats in premiere and 259 seats in economy class on these routes. “Jet Airways’ two daily flights from India to Amsterdam will facilitate further growth in business and tourism between India and the Netherlands,” said Cramer Ball, chief executive officer, Jet Airways.
With the objective of providing convenient connections for its passengers to key destinations across Europe and North America over Amsterdam, Jet Airways has entered into a strategic agreement with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and Delta Air Lines.
Under this agreement and subject to government and regulatory approvals, Jet Airways will codeshare to 30 European destinations for travel between India and Europe via Amsterdam.
The codeshare partnership will give Jet Airways guests a single ticket, through check-in of bags to their final destinations and co-ordinated customer service at airports. Members of Jet Airways’ frequent flier programme, JetPrivilege, will also be eligible to earn and redeem JP Miles on codeshare flights operated by Delta and KLM.
