Jet Airways (Mumbai) is getting out of the low-fare business and will concentrate on full service flights under its own brand. All JetKonnect-branded flights will end on November 30 and on the following day all flights will be operated under Jet Airways brand.
JetKonnect (Mumbai) was originally known as Sahara Airlines which started operations on December 3, 1993. The airline changed its name to Air Sahara on October 2, 2000. Jet Airways acquired the airline and changed its name to Jetlite on June 1, 2007.
Jetlite was replaced and merged into Jet Airways’s JetKonnect brand on March 25, 2012.
Jet Airways issued this statement:
From December 1, 2014 all existing JetKonnect flights will operate as full service flights under a single brand, Jet Airways.
All guests booking flights on or after September 15, 2014 for travel on or after December 1, 2014 will enjoy a full service experience onboard all Jet Airways and JetKonnect operated flights across our domestic network. This enhancement will involve complimentary meal service onboard all our flights for travel effective December 01, 2014. Consequently Sky Café, our Buy on Board service will be discontinued.
JetKonnect flies to 47 cities within India with over 430 daily flights with a mix of Boeing and ATR aircraft.
