Jet Airways, India’s premier international airline, will expand its connectivity between Qatar and India by introducing its wide-body A330-200 between Doha and Delhi to cater to the growing demand on this important sector. A330 operations to Mumbai are on since November, 2016.
The wide-body jetliner with a two-cabin configuration of 18 seats in Premiere and 236 in Economy began flying between Doha and Delhi yesterday. Aside from increasing capacity on the popular route, the spacious cabin will allow guests to travel in greater comfort.
Onboard the A330, guests will get a taste of Jet Airways’ award winning in-flight experience, enhanced cabin comfort, and, for Premiere guests, a chance to stretch out in comfort in the famed ‘Bed in the Clouds’.
Set in a unique herringbone layout, each of the 18 seats in the Premiere cabin electronically open out to a 180-degree flat bed with lumbar support and massage systems. Every Première seat is an aisle seat which offers guests privacy and comfort to work and rest.
The Jet Airways Economy cabin on board the Airbus A330 is fitted with ergonomically-designed seating for a comfortable and relaxing journey in a spacious cabin.
The fine-dining experience on board Jet Airways’ international services includes delectable Indian and international meal options along with a carefully selected list of fine wines and spirits.
Every seat on the A330 offers a wide choice of on-demand video and audio entertainment options including Bollywood and Hollywood films, television shows and a selection of music channels featuring a wide range of Indian and world music genres.
Shakir Kantawala, VP Gulf, Middle East & Africa, Jet Airways, said, “It is our constant endeavour to create a consistent, unmatched travel experience for our guests. Deploying the A330 gives us an opportunity to combine on-board luxury with our signature Indian hospitality to create an exceptional value proposition for our guests. Jet Airways is a preferred brand in the highly competitive Indo-Gulf market and offers unparalleled service and quality to guests. We are confident that introducing the A330 will help us establish ourselves as the airline of choice on the route.”
Deploying a wide bodied A330 will facilitate a higher number of guests from Doha to connect seamlessly onto Jet Airways’ extensive domestic network and beyond to international destinations from the airline’s hubs in Delhi and Mumbai.
The A330 service will depart Doha as flight 9W 553, at 23:00 hrs (local time) and arrive at Delhi at 05:15 hrs (IST). On the return leg, the flight 9W 554 will depart Delhi at 20:05 hrs (IST) and arrive at Doha at 21:30 hrs (LT).
