Jet Airways — Flying High

Jet Airways, one of India’s first and largest private airlines, has been soaring higher and higher with every flight it takes. The second largest carrier by market share, it has recently been in news for its outstanding business turnover lately. Its standalone net income more than doubled in the three months to June — to ₹53.5 crore. Including its subsidiary JetLite, the net income rose to ₹58 crore helped by an 11.8 per cent rise in passenger revenue at ₹5,136 crores.

This healthy set of numbers signals a ninth consecutive profitable quarter for the aviation giant. Keeping up with this success, the airline plans to expand in the coming festive season. Recently, it announced its plans to introduce 56 new weekly flights in this month and the next.

The newly introduced flights will fly daily from Pune to Guwahati via Kolkata as well as to Coimbatore. Jet Airways is also introducing additional flights with non-stop frequencies to a few existing routes such as Pune — Kolkata, Jaipur — New Delhi, Guwahati — New Delhi, and Chennai — New Delhi. The airline also plans to initiate flight operations between Bangalore and Silchar, along with New Delhi and Jorhat.

The reason for Jet’s phenomenal success can be attributed to their low-cost model of service. Let’s have a look at some of their best services: -
