Jet adds another capacity
Jet Airways is all set to commence its third daily nonstop service between Mumbai and London Heathrow with effect from October 29, 2017.
The latest frequency to London Heathrow – 9W 116, will depart on October 29, 2017 at 0925 hrs (LT) from Mumbai on Boeing 777-300 ER. The new flight will augment Jet Airways’ Cargo capacity on the route by a third, strengthening its presence in both India and the UK market, allowing it to offer the maximum frequency and capacity between Mumbai and London for carriage of commodities such as perishables, flowers, pharmaceuticals, engineering goods, garments & fabrics, foodstuffs, as well as specialised medical equipment, among others. By helping expand connectivity, the flight will promote greater access for cargo, right from London Heathrow to destinations in India, as well as the SAARC and ASEAN regions. The addition of the third flight from Mumbai to London Heathrow complements the airline’s existing operations to the English capital from its hubs in Mumbai and Delhi, aboard its flagship B777-300 ER aircraft, that offer a comparatively superior and comfortable flying experience. In fact, Jet Airways will become the only Indian airline to operate thrice daily services between Mumbai - India’s economic capital, and London Heathrow – one of the world’s busiest and best airports.
Aside from enhancing capacity on the highly popular route, the additional service will also expand Jet Airways’ ability to offer its guests greater flexibility and choice, helping to create a far superior and well differentiated travel experience for them, in line with the airline’s commitment as part of its ‘Guest First’ philosophy.
The third frequency enhances onward connectivity over London Heathrow to North America. With partners Delta Air Lines and Virgin Atlantic it will allow Jet Airways to offer guests improved connection times to 14 destinations over London Heathrow to North America.
