Jet to launch new Saudi services
Thiruvananthapuram, March 11, 2010: Jet Airways, India’s premier international airline, will introduce daily flights from Thiruvananthapuram to Dammam, its third daily service from India to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, effective March 28, 2010. The airline currently flies daily from Mumbai to Riyadh and Jeddah.
The airline will deploy a state-of-the-art Boeing 737-800 aircraft on this route, offering Premiere and Economy guests an in-flight product that is among the best in its class, warm service, award-winning In-Flight Entertainment, as well as delectable cuisine.
The introduction of the new daily services to Dammam will further strengthen Jet Airways’ presence in the Gulf, where it has emerged as one of the leading carriers on the Indo-Gulf sector in a relatively short period of time.
Dammam will be the tenth destination in Jet Airways’ Gulf network and its third in Saudi Arabia, and the new services from the city will complement the airline’s existing daily Gulf operations to Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Dubai, Doha, Kuwait, Muscat and Sharjah, as well as Jeddah and Riyadh from several cities in India.
From Jet Airways’ international gateway cities of Mumbai and Delhi, guests may also connect on to the airline’s daily services to several destinations across North America, Europe, Asia and vice-versa.
Jet Airways flight 9W 566 will depart Thiruvananthapuram at 2030 hrs, arriving in Dammam at 2250 hrs. 9W 565 will then depart Dammam at 2350 hrs, arriving in Thiruvananthapuram at 0715 hrs, the following day.
According to Mr. Nikos Kardassis, CEO, Jet Airways, “Jet Airways has already established itself as a prestigious brand in the intensely competitive Indo-Gulf sector in a relatively short period of time, on accord of the warmth of its service and quality of its in-flight product. We are confident that the new Thiruvananthapuram-Dammam service will prove similarly popular with our guests.”
