JET AIRWAYS was prominent at the Business Travel Show, a quality stand designed to reflect that the Indian airline is catching up fast with the style and presentation as some of its competing neighbours from Singapore and around the Gulf. Whilst the takeover of Air Sahara plods on through the regulatory process, for the summer of this year (from July) the airline will be operating twice daily from Heathrow to Mumbai, a single flight to Delhi and from the beginning of April, six times a week to Amritsar. All services are flown by two-class Airbus A340 aircraft (leased from South African Airways) but Jet has on order its own A340s, which will probably be configured in a four-class arrangement. Jet Airways currently operates a fleet of 53 aircraft, mainly Boeing 737s but including three A340s and eight ATR 72. With the takeover of Air Sahara, Jet Airways will control 55% of the Indian market. Jet is a major carrier waiting to make its international impact.
