Jet Airways has increased the frequency on its new Manchester to Mumbai direct service, before the first plane has even taken off.
The airline will now offer five flights a week to the Indian city, giving Northern travellers increased flexibility and options. Flights will now depart on Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Announced in May, Jet Airways, one of India's premier international airlines, will use an Airbus A330-200 on the route with Première (business) and economy classes.
Lydia Nazareth, General Manager UK & Ireland at Jet Airways said:
“We are pleased to increase the frequency on flights between Manchester and Mumbai ahead of our launch in November.
“Jet Airways is committed to deepening both commerce and tourism ties between the two countries. Expanding our flight frequency allows us to give further choice to business and leisure travellers heading to Mumbai from the North of England.
“Not only are we giving customers more choice when travelling to India, but our network of flights across India also connects Mumbai to multiple different destinations across the country."
Julian Carr, Aviation Director at Manchester Airport, said:
“We are delighted that Jet Airways has decided to increase the frequency on its direct flights to Mumbai from Manchester. It’s a clear indication of the airline’s commitment to Manchester, and also a sign of the demand for people from the North to travel to India.
