Commenting on the introduction of these new services, Mr. Wolfgang Prock-Schauer said, "As Jet Airways' hub in Eastern India, Kolkata is very important. To cater to mainly business and religious traffic between Kolkata and Ahmedabad, Jet Airways has introduced a new flight on this sector.
On the Kolkata-Guwahati sector, Jet Airways already handles primarily business, as also medical and student traffic with its two morning flights.
The airline has thus introduced a new evening flight on the Kolkata-Guwahati sector with a Boeing 737-800 aircraft, especially scheduled to allow Jet Airways' passengers travelling on this sector a convenient same-day return option.
