Jet Airways: Direct Flight From Mumbai to Manchester

Jet Airways announced that starting November 5, 2018, it will launch its first direct service between Mumbai and Manchester. Jet Airways will deploy its wide body A330-200 with 254 seating capacity for the service, which will operate for four days every week including Monday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Manchester will become the 21st international addition to the Jet Airways’ network and, with the introduction of this new flight, the carrier’s 5th non-stop service to/from the UK, Jet Airways will also become the largest carrier between Mumbai and the UK. The new service will complement the carrier’s existing thrice daily, nonstop services between Mumbai – London Heathrow, and a daily service between Delhi – London Heathrow. Vinay Dube, Chief Executive Officer, Jet Airways, said, “We are extremely pleased to begin a new chapter in our decade-long relationship with the United Kingdom. The new service will bring Manchester into our global network, reinforcing our footprint as well as expanding the choice of connectivity to/from the UK for our guests with the 4 days/week, non-stop service. With the new flight, Jet Airways will have over 8000 seats on offer every week, making it increasingly convenient for both business as well as leisure travellers, travelling between India and the UK, deepening commerce as well as tourism ties between the two countries.” Manchester Airport, CEO, Andrew Cowan, said, “This route will deliver a major boost to businesses looking to export to the world’s fastest-growing economy, as well as helping to attract Indian visitors and investors to the North. We look forward to working with Jet Airways on launching the Mumbai service in the months ahead.” Jet Airways’ flight 9W 130 will depart from Mumbai at 0230 hrs (Local time) and will arrive at Manchester’s Terminal 2 at 0755 hrs (Local time).
