Jet Airways to increase its daily flights to 650

MUMBAI: Jet Airways, India's second-biggest carrier by market share will increase its daily flights to 650 from just over 600 in the forthcoming summer schedule, starting end of March.

"The carrier will launch new, direct services to Madurai and Bagdogra, from Mumbai," it said in a statement.

"Similarly, the airline will also connect the Pink city of Jaipur with Chandigarh, Dehradun with Srinagar, and Bengaluru with Kozhikode with non-stop flights, aside from services linking Bengaluru with Lucknow, via New Delhi and, Mumbai with Srinagar, via Dehradun," it added.

Jet will also add 12 additional frequencies on existing routes across its network. These include a seventh daily flight between Mumbai and Goa, as well as Delhi and Lucknow, aside from a fourth frequency between Chennai–Tiruchirappalli and a second frequency between Delhi and Bhopal. The airline will also introduce two additional services on the New Delhi–Patna route, it said.

^^ Air asia CEO is consistently demanding the Indian Govt. to fly Madurai for the past 15 long years but the unfair & unreasonable bilateral decisions in Indo-ASEAN treaty is still keeping IXM unutilised whereas the other nearby airport that features as one of the 18 POC's in the treary already is connected with 6-7 daily flights to Kuala lampur (KUL).



Hope Madurai gets a KUL flight soon ! Peace :)

[quote]As an indication that more foreign airlines would not be allowed to operate international flights from small airports, Minister of State for Civil Aviation Jayant Sinha expressed hope that domestic carriers would meet demands of passengers through Madurai airport.



When asked whether Madurai airport will be included in bilateral airport treaties with countries such as Malaysia, Singapore and the United Arab Emirates, he said the government looked at those demands carefully. [color=#BF0040]“If there is indeed a demand from Madurai for flights to international destinations, our hope is that our domestic carriers will be able to satisfy those demands,” he added[/color], while interacting with the media here on Saturday.



Earlier, members of Tamil Nadu Chamber of Commerce and Industry submitted a memorandum to Mr. Sinha at Madurai airport, following his visit to Sivaganga to meet party workers as part of Bharatiya Janata Party’s Foundation Day celebrations.



Apart from demands for extension of terminal building and immediate commencement of international cargo operation at Madurai airport, the Chamber also reiterated in their memorandum the long-pending demand for inclusion of Madurai in the bilateral treaties so that direct flights could be operated to different international destinations. Presently, Colombo was the only international destination served by a foreign carrier from Madurai.



Citing Mr. Sinha, chamber senior president S. Rethinavelu said the government was not keen to encourage foreign airlines to pull passengers from airports such as Madurai to theirs hubs in their countries for onward journey to other international destinations.



Regarding their demand for international cargo operation from Madurai, the chamber said the Minister assured them that the matter would be discussed with Home Minister regarding Bureau of Civil Aviation Security clearance.



The chamber also demanded that the Madurai airport terminal be extended from the present built-up area of 17,500 square metres to 60,000 square metres and the extension of runway from 7,500 feet to 9,000 feet to meet the growing traffic.



Chamber president Jegatheesan and its chairman (Tourism in south Tamil Nadu) N. Sriram were present.[/quote]


So he is very clear Madurai will not added to any bilateral agreement with Malaysia, Singapore and UAE. :(
