Mr Goyal told the Gulf News on the the sidelines of the 64th annual general meeting of the International Air Transport Association (IATA), in Istanbul that Jet will fly daily from Mumbai to San Francisco via Shanghai from June 14. He expressed happiness with the success of Jet's Brussels hub, which he said was growing from strength to strength.
Jet Airways and Malaysia Airlines have also worked out a code-share arrangement for flights between Malaysia and India. The details are being finalised, he added.
''We need special airports to sustain low-cost carriers, which cannot afford to pay the same airport charges that large carriers do,'' Mr Goyal said, citing the development of the new airport in Jebel Ali as a step in the right direction.
