by December 13, 2016 General

Private carrier Jet Airways plans to make Bengaluru International airport the third hub of its operations. The company has already taken eight parking bays in the airport as part of making Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) its major centre of operations in South India. Mumbai and Delhi are its present hubs. “We are seeing more investments in Bengaluru and it is increasingly gaining prominence as a global investment destination resulting in a significant growth in both domestic and international aviation traffic,” said Praveen Iyer, Vice President Commercial India sales, Jet Airways. “The KIA has sufficient infrastructure that we can use and build our network,” he added. Jet Airways daily operates 53 domestic flights from Bengaluru and has carried over 2 million passengers last year. The airline will start its new service to Singapore from Wednesday while its Colombo services will begin from January 5, 2016. Jet Airways already operates two daily flights from Mumbai and Delhi and a daily flight from Chennai to Singapore. — Staff Reporter
