19 April, 2005: Indian airline firm Jet Airlines has started daily flights to Singapore from April 14, 2005. A ticket for the round trip in the Jet Air India-Singapore flight costs Rs 14000. Tickets can be booked online or purchased from agents or Jet Airways offices.

This is the first time an Indian private airline is flying to Singapore. As of now, the only foreign destinations for Indian private airlines are in Nepal and Sri Lanka. The inaugural Jet Air Singapore flight left Mumbai at 10.50 PM in the night and reached Singapore at 6.55 PM in the morning.

Also on the anvil are plans for Jet Air India-US and India-UK flights. Both are expected by May 2005. Jet Airways Chennai-Kuala Lumpur flights also take off from May 5. 

Jet Airways recently had a successful initial public offering. After Royal Airways, it is the only publicly listed Indian private airline firm. Sahara, the second largest Indian private airliner is also planning to take off to foreign destinations. 

Jet Airways, which has been the undisputed leader among private airlines in Indian skies is currently facing increased competition with the entry or impending entry of several aviation companies, among them Air Deccan, Kingfisher, Go Airlines, SpiceJet etc.
