Jet Airways, India’s premier international airline, will launch daily, direct services to Kuwait from Mumbai, from March 29, 2009.This would be Jet Airway’s second service from India to Kuwait. Jet already operates a flight to Kuwait from Kochi.

Mr. Wolfgang Prock-Schauer, CEO, Jet Airways made it clear that Jet Airways is trying to make a strong statement inspite of the financial recession hitting the Air industry badly and will try to make it a  pleasant experience for the customers ,”Jet Airways has already established itself as a formidable brand in the intensely competitive India-Gulf sector in a relatively short period of time, on account of the warmth of its service and quality of its in-flight product. We are confident that the new Mumbai-Kuwait service will prove similarly popular with passengers.” he said.

As far as the timings of the Flight 9W 572, which will be taking people from India to Kuwait and viceversa, are concerned, the flight is scheduled to take off from Mumbai at 1900 hrs and reach Kuwait at 2030 hrs.Flight 9W 571 will then depart Kuwait at 2130 hrs and arrive in Mumbai at 0400 hrs.

Jet Airways will operate the new flight aboard a state-of-the-art Boeing 737-800 aircraft. The airline is also operating daily flights to Bahrain, Muscat, Doha, Dubai and Abu Dhabi in the Middle East.

Jet Airways has been hit by the slowdown in economy and air travel like most airline companies in the world, and has been trying desperately to grow its amrket share. The company already has an arrangement with Kingfisher to share facilities and amenities. Jet had an abortive attempt to lay off its employees, from which it had to back off due to public ire.
