The demand for air travel is growing steadily across cities. This, together with our guests’ desire for seamless, non-stop connectivity, forms the basis for our services being offered during the summer schedule. The mix of new services - both non-stop as well as direct - between emerging cities, key metros and our hubs in Mumbai, Delhi and Bengaluru, will not just help cater to this demand, but will also facilitate quicker and more convenient movement of guests throughout our network - in India and abroad. I am sure our unique and differentiated services will reinforce Jet Airways’ place as the airline of choice in Indian skies, besides giving an impetus to connectivity, trade and development in all the cities in the North East, including Aizawl, Jorhat, Silchar, Imphal and Guwahati.
