The new schedule features a combination of non-stop services – several of them on unique routes being introduced for the first time in the industry, as well as direct, one-stop services between new city pairs in the airline’s existing pan India network, bolstering it further.
For the first time in the industry, Jet Airways will connect Pune with Patna and Raipur with non-stop services. The airline will also connect the city to Chandigarh with a non-stop service and return to Imphal, Manipur with 9W 982 – a thrice-a-week direct service, via Guwahati.

As part of the overall schedule, Jet Airways also strengthens connectivity between the country’s capital and the North Eastern region, via a bouquet of pioneering, non-stop services including, thrice-a-week flights to Aizawl and Jorhat and four times-a-week flights to Silchar from New Delhi. The airline also re-commences daily operations to Imphal from Delhi with a non-stop flight, four times-a-week and a direct flight via Guwahati.

Imphal will also be connected with Pune with direct flights via Guwahati and Kolkata, enhancing access and connectivity between the North-East and its hubs in Mumbai and Delhi. In fact, Guwahati will play an instrumental role in facilitating this season’s connectivity, enabling non-stop daily flights also to Bagdogra, Imphal and Mumbai. The upcoming robust connectivity between the North East and India’s financial as well as political Capital is expected to provide a positive stimulus to the region’s economy, boosting tourism as well as development of business and trade, leading to growth enhancement of Cargo movement.
Among other enhancements, Summer 2018 will also see Jet Airways connect the holy city of Amritsar with non-stop and direct flights from its hubs in Mumbai and Bengaluru respectively for the first time. In fact, Bengaluru will witness addition of other new, non-stop flights that will connect it to the bustling cities of Indore and Patna, reinforcing the city’s position as Jet Airways’ third domestic hub, after Mumbai and Delhi.
Cementing its presence further, Jet Airways also begins a daily, non-stop service between Mumbai and Tiruchirappalli – Tamil Nadu’s famous temple city and a religious centre for the very first time, aside from a new, direct service between Tiruchirappalli and Delhi, connecting the heritage city with its hubs to facilitate smooth and highly convenient transfers for guests for their onward connections.
Raj Sivakumar, Senior Vice President, Network Planning and Revenue Management, Jet Airways, said, “The burgeoning demand for air travel pan-India is increasingly witnessing guests travelling to more than one destination, reinforcing our network carrier model. Guests are also preferring seamless connectivity with minimum stoppages, regardless of their city of origin. Our Summer schedule has therefore been designed to facilitate the above developments via a mix of new services – non-stop as well as direct flights, between emerging cities, key metros and our hubs in Mumbai, Delhi and Bengaluru, in an endeavour to promote faster, easier and more efficient movement of guests throughout our network, both pan India and worldwide. I am sure our latest schedule of flights will reinforce Jet Airways’ place as the airline of choice in Indian skies besides give a special impetus to connectivity, trade and development in each of the cities, including the North East.”
