Jet Airways To Launch Services To Riyadh, Affective August 6th, 2009

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Jet Airways, India’s premier international airline, will launch service to Riyadh, the capital and largest city of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, from Mumbai, effective August 6, 2009.

This will be the airline’s second service to Saudi Arabia, complementing the airline’s existing daily Mumbai-Jeddah service.

The airline will launch four flights a week on the Mumbai-Riyadh sector, on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays respectively, aboard a state-of-the-art Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

With the introduction of this new flight, Jet Airways will fly to 8 cities in the Gulf, including Kuwait, Bahrain, Muscat, Doha, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Jeddah and Riyadh.

According to Wolfgang Prock-Schauer, CEO, Jet Airways, “Saudi Arabia is a very important market for Jet Airways on account of the large volume of traffic to the Gulf Kingdom, to and from India, and an important addition to the airline’s growing Gulf network. With the launch of our second daily service to Saudi Arabia, we are confident of further reinforcing our position as among the leading carriers on the Indo-Gulf sector.”

Jet Airways is also introducing a new, daily service to Dubai from Hyderabad, its fifth daily service to the Gulf emirate and second from Southern India, a second daily service to Bangkok from Mumbai, as well as Kochi-Sharjah service.
