Jet Airways introduces three new services among 122 additional weekly international flights this Winter


Jet Airways will commence its second frequency between Mumbai and Kuwait. Jet Airways 9W 572 will depart for Kuwait from Mumbai at 2205 hrs (LT) and arrive at its destination at 0005 hrs (LT). On its return leg, flight 9W 571 will depart from Kuwait at 0105 hrs (LT) and arrive into Mumbai at 0715 hrs (LT).



Does it make sense to have two flights on the BOM-KWI sector within an hour of each other?

Delta ends Newark Amsterdam route in March 2018
Posted 11 October 2017 08:30

Delta Airlines in March 2018 is ending Newark Amsterdam service, with last Newark departure scheduled on 23MAR18. For winter season, the Skyteam member operates this route 4 times a week, reducing to 3 in March 2018.

The following schedule is effective for the month of February 2018.

DL148 EWR1814 0745+1AMS 76W x146
DL149 AMS1310 1613EWR 76W x146


Is this a forerunner to 9W operating this route for AF/KL/DL? KL does not operate this route. The only other carrier is UA

Jet Airways confirms order for 75 Boeing aircraft

Jet Airways said on Wednesday it had agreed to buy 75 Boeing 737 Max aircraft, and that it could purchase another 75 to help it expand in a booming Indian market.

Jet said in a statement that deliveries of the single aisle jets are expected to start in mid-2018 and a decision on adding an equal number of narrow-body aircraft "will be made over the coming few months".

An order for 75 737 MAX 10 jets would be worth as much as $9.3 billion based on list price although airlines typically get discounts for large orders.

Reuters reported in June that Jet, which is part owned by Abu Dhabi's Etihad Airways, was in talks to buy either Boeing's 737 MAX planes or aircraft from Airbus SE's A320neo family.

Airlines in India have hundreds of aircraft on order as they look to tap into a market growing by nearly 20 percent a year thanks to rising incomes and low cost fares.

Jet Airways has the second largest market share in India behind InterGlobe Aviation's IndiGo.

It must be. Without the EWR-AMS in the winter, 9W's India traffic in AMS would suffer. I think the plan is let Jet fly year round BOM-AMS-EWR and DL will add a flight in the summer peak season EWR-AMS for US tourists (who might not want to fly 9W). AS a DL Diamond, DL not flying the route is a bummer. The EWR-AMS and EWR-CDG are the easier flights to get award seats and more importantly Global Upgrades.
