New Delhi, Oct 26 (UNI) India's largest private airline Jet Airways will start flying to New York's John F Kennedy International Airport from October 28.
The flight via Brussels, Jet's new European hub, will be synchronised to provide passengers a seamless transfer between Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai to cities in north America -- New York (JFK), New Jersey (Newark) and Toronto in Canada.
JFK ranks among the busiest airports in the world. Jet has planned to deploy brand new Boeing 777-300ER (extended range) aircraft to service the new route, said chairman Naresh Goyal.
The airline will operate into American Airlines' terminal at JFK and passengers will be able to connect with its network.
''By February, we'll start flying from Mumbai to San Fransisco via Shanghai. Eventually we'll connect Washington DC, Chicago and Los Angeles as well,'' said Mr Goyal.
The airline plans to connect more cities within and outside the country and is acquiring 25 wide-bodied aircraft to fuel its international operations.
''We'll soon be starting international flights from Amritsar, Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Chennai and Bangalore,'' said Mr Goyal. ''We're also looking at 30 points in Europe to be served by a code-share agreement with Brussels Airlines.'' UNI
