Probably one of India’s most well known private domestic airlines, Jet Airways started out its domestic operations on 5th May 1993 under the leadership of Naresh Goyal. With an initial fleet comprising of 4 leased Boeing 737 aeroplanes, Jetairways soon expanded to include international operations with its maiden international flight from Chennai to Colombo. Jet Airways today is known for its state of the art and world class service as well as its value for money fares.
JetAirways has come a long way from its initial days of operating with 4 leased aircraft and now boasts of a large operating fleet. JetAirways now connects close to 76 destinations which include 52 domestic destinations as well as 24 international locations.
With Jet Airlines moving from strength to strength, it announced a takeover attempt to buyout Air Sahara with an offer of US$500 million. However, the deal didn’t go through and later on, a second attempt was made on 12 April 2007 where JetAirways successfully bought Air Sahara and rechristened it Jetlite airlines. It became the low cost arm of Jet Airlines and catered to the value segment of the air passengers.
Similar to Jetlite, Jet Konnect is another low cost arm of Jet Airways which also caters to the low cost segment. It’s essentially a no frills version of the parent Jet Airways that gives passengers low fares without compromising on service. Jet Konnect came into existence after Jetlite ( erstwhile Air Sahara) and differs with Jetlite by offering a premiere service that adds some value in terms of in-flight reading material , welcome drink and hot meals on board.
Jet Airways operates 385 flights on a daily basis to 65 destinations where domestic flights accounts for 44 including all the major cities including Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Goa, Jaipur, Kolkata and other key cities.
