One of the leading Indian airlines, Jet Airways is planning to expand its operations in Europe. In this effort the airline is looking to introduce flights to Amsterdam. The airline is looking to bump up the number of flights to Bangkok, Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Singapore.
The airline has made a request for permission through a letter sent to Ministry of Civil Aviation by Naresh Goyal, Jet Airways Chairman. The airline has made this request within three weeks after ministry sought requests from other airlines to fly on the routes formerly operated by the Kingfisher Airlines.
The ministry’s initiative has provided an opportunity for the domestic carriers to operate an additional 25,000 seats to Singapore, Dubai, Nepal and Bangkok. Kingfisher Airlines, which is grounded now, was given permission to operate 140 weekly flights to eight international destinations that include London, Hong Kong, Thailand, Nepal and the UAE.
Presently Jet Airways operate flights to three European destinations; London, Milan and Brussels. Jet Airways has already got Government’s nod to start flights to Frankfurt, Paris, Dusseldorf, Barcelona and Zurich.
