India’s Jet Airways is set to boost its network in the Gulf with the launch of new Mumbai-Sharjah flight and resuming flights from Kochi to Kuwait and Bahrain, adding to flights options for travellers from Gulf, the UK and Europe etc.
One of India’s leading carriers, Jet Airways has announced a new flight on the Mumbai-Sharjah route from October 18. This will be the airline’s sixth daily flight to the UAE from India’s financial capital.
The airline would also be resuming its flight to Kuwait and Bahrain from Kochi, as a part of its winter schedule.
“Our new daily return service Mumbai to Sharjah will be the sixth daily service between Mumbai and the UAE, in addition to the existing four daily services to Dubai and one daily flight to Abu Dhabi,” the Indian airline said in a press release.
Flight 9W558 will leave Mumbai at 2100 hrs and arrive in Sharjah at 2215 hrs. For the return journey, Flight 9W557 will take off from Sharjah airport at 2315 hrs and land in the India’s western coastal city at 0315 hrs.
Flight on the Kochi-Kuwait route will operate four times a week- Mondays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. The Kochi-Bahrain return flights will run on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
The launch of the new flight and the resumption of the old ones is likely to further strengthen Jet Airways‘ presence in the Gulf where it is acknowledged as one of the leading carriers to and from India.
Jet Airways will deploy the Boeing 737-800s on these routes and will be offering premiere and economy tickets to cater to both the affluent travellers and the budget ones seeking comparatively cheap flights.
While the flights will directly benefit travellers from the Gulf, tourists from the UK and rest of the Europe and other countries will be able to choose from a plethora of connecting flight options for a seamless connectivity to India and beyond.
