Sheona Southern, Managing Director of Marketing Manchester, said, “Manchester has a proud history in science, politics, music, arts and sport. Today the city combines this heritage with a progressive vision to be a globally minded, open and collaborative world city. Thanks to Jet Airways, now is a better time than ever for the Indian market to discover Manchester and the North of England’s strengths as a culturally rich visitor destination, growing investment hub and diverse academic network.”

The new service will complement the carrier's existing thrice daily, non-stop services between Mumbai – London Heathrow, and a daily service between Delhi – London Heathrow.

Marnix Fruitema, Executive Vice President - Commercial, Jet Airways said, “Our new 5 days-a-week non-stop service brings Manchester into our global network, expanding our footprint as well as the choice of connectivity to and from the United Kingdom for our guests. The new service will enable Jet Airways to offer over 8,500 seats every week, making it increasingly convenient for business guests, leisure travelers as well as students, to travel between India and the UK, strengthening commerce as well as tourism ties between the two countries. Guests can also avail the advantages of various Jet Airways’ programmes such as eduJetter and JetEscapes to make their journeys more enriching.”

The launch of 5 days a week flights to Manchester enhances Jet Airways’ cargo capacity to approximately 1550 tonnes a week between India and UK and more importantly, opens a 2nd important destination in the UK to shippers, exporters and manufacturers from India.

 The opening up of Manchester route will enable the airline to offer the much needed daily direct capacity from Mumbai and other stations in India for carriage of commodities such as perishables, pharmaceuticals, engineering goods, garments & fabrics, foodstuffs, as well as specialized medical equipment, among others
