Press Release Summary: December 07, 2007: Jet Airways, India's premier airline, announces the introduction of a new Kolkata-Ahmedabad service with the operation of three flights a week and additional frequency on the Kolkata - Guwahati sector, effective December 17, 2007.
Press Release Body: These flights will operate with a Boeing 737-800 aircraft with 24 seats in Premiere Class and 120 seats in Economy Class.
Jet Airways' flights 9W 631 (Kolkata -Ahmedabad) will depart on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from Kolkata at 1820 hrs and arrive at Ahmedabad at 2050 hrs. On the return leg, flight 9W 632 (Ahmedabad-Kolkata) will depart Ahmedabad at 2125 hrs and arrive at Kolkata at 2355 hrs.
Jet Airways also announces the enhancement of its frequency on Kolkata - Guwahati sector by introducing additional frequencies three times a week. Jet Airways flight 9W 627 (Kolkata-Guwahati) will depart on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from Kolkata at 1820 hrs and arrive at Guwahati at 1930 hrs. On the return leg, flight 9W 628 (Guwahati-Kolkata) will depart Guwahati at 2005 hrs and arrive at Kolkata at 2115 hrs.
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."
