The flights will be operated with an Airbus A330 featuring spacious cabin, greater legroom, lie-flat beds in Premiere, and all the comforts associated with long-haul international travel. The new service between Bengaluru-Amsterdam will be operated daily, while the flights between Chennai and Paris will be operated five days weekly. These new flights will complement the airline’s existing direct operations from Delhi and Mumbai to Amsterdam and onwards to Toronto, as well as direct flights from Mumbai to Paris.

The addition of the two services will make Jet Airways the only airline to offer direct nonstop services between these cities, and will offer its customers the unique option of travelling to Europe and North America through three European gateways, while also enabling travellers to travel through one gateway and return via another.
