Jet Airways Set To Add More Flights To Gulf

Jet Airways has announced its move to operate new daily services from Hyderabad to Dammam and from Mangaluru to Sharjah from August 7.

A press release said that the addition of these services will bolster Jet Airways’ offering to the Gulf, strengthening the network and enhancing connectivity for passengers. Dammam will be the second city in the Gulf region to be connected with Hyderabad by Jet Airways after Abu Dhabi. With the addition of Sharjah, Jet Airways will operate to three cities in the Gulf region from Mangaluru.

The airline currently operates daily flights to Abu Dhabi and Dubai from Mangaluru.

Gaurang Shetty, Wholetime Director of Jet Airways, said in a statement: “With economic ties between India and the Gulf region flourishing, Jet Airways recognises the need to provide more flight options to its passengers.”

Travel between India and the Gulf is witnessing rapid growth with over 32 lakh flyers travelling to the Gulf countries from India between January to March 2016 and a similar number returning to India during the same period.
