On Monday, India’s Jet Airways, introduced its widebody Airbus A330-200s into Singapore on the Singapore-Delhi route. By 21 December 2007, Jet Airways will upgrade all its thrice daily services between Singapore and India to the A330-200 aircraft, increasing the airline’s total capacity on such routes by 60%. The aircraft is configured with 30 Première Class seats and 196 seats in Economy.

According to the Singapore Tourism Board, visitor arrivals from India grew 12.8% to 615,732 from January to October 2007, versus the same period last year. Arrivals in 2006 also increased 12.9% from 2005. Given this steady growth, Jet Airways plans to increase services to Singapore up to five times daily by the second quarter of 2008, clearly indicating its intention to make Singapore a key gateway in Asia.

“These are exciting times for Jet Airways as we expand internationally in our constant endeavor to be one of the top five airlines in the world. The South-East Asia market has always been important with the passenger traffic constantly increasing. With our modern fleet, premium products and services and passionate people, our customers will truly experience the joy of flying,” said Mr. Sudheer Raghavan, Executive Vice President Commercial, Jet Airways.

The new widebody A330 will replace Jet Airways’ state-of-the-art Boeing 737-800, an aircraft which has only been servicing the Singapore-India route for just slightly over a year.
