Jet Airways

Jet Airways of India announced that it will be launching new nonstop flights to Johannesbourg, South Africa from its Mumbai hub effective April 2008. Initially flights will be flown 3 times a week using an A 330-200 and then increased to daily based upon market response. 9W is also keenly looking to expand its presence to Durban, a city which has a population of 1 million ethnic Indians.

Lastly, BLR airport has informed 9W officials that it isn't capable of handling new international flights wanted by the carrier to fly to LAX via BRU using a B 773ER due to capacity constraints. As a result, 9W is now examining the feasibility of flying to LAX from HYD instead as well as delaying the launch of LAX by replacing it with new flights to IAD-Washington DC from HYD via BRU from February 2008.
