Jet Airways, the country’s premier international airline, has completed its two decades of service excellence in the skies, since it began operations as an Air Taxi Operator on May 05, 1993. The airline’s mission since commencing operation was to widen connectivity within India and overseas and facilitate the movement of people, encouraging both tourism and trade, while contributing in tandem to the development of the Indian economy. The airline has since then emerged as the first private airline to introduce the Indian air traveller to the reliability, safety and comfort of new technologies.
The airline embarked on a phase of international expansion in March 2004 with a flight between Chennai and Colombo. Jet Airways then opened new international routes initially within the SAARC region and then onto Singapore, Bangkok, and London.
Jet Airways currently has emerged as India’s premier international airline and one of the few iconic Indian service brands to successfully create a name for itself globally. The airline, today, with over 105 aircraft, offers customers in India and abroad a schedule of over 600 flights daily, spanning 20 international destinations across the globe and over 52 destinations pan-India.
