Jet Airways, JetKonnect


JetKonnect is the low-cost brand of Jet Airways (the second largest Indian airline). It was launched on 8 May 2009. It operates a fleet of Boeing 737 Next Generation aircraft. The rationale for launching JetKonnect was to close down loss-making routes and divert the planes to more profitable routes with higher passenger load factors. Jet already ran a low-cost airline named JetLite.

To identify if the flight is a full service or Konnect the flight numbers for Konnect are in the series 9W 2000-2999. Jet Airways merged the JetLite brand into Jet Konnect on 25 March 2012. Jet Airways offers eight business class seats in Konnect. In December 2012, Jet Airways placed an order for 5 ATR 72-600 aircraft to “enhance regional connectivity.” The first aircraft was delivered the same month, leased from GECAS and was operated for JetKonnect.

According to Jet Airways, the decision to launch a low-cost brand instead of expanding the existing JetLite was taken to avoid the regulatory delays associated with moving excess aircraft and assets from Jet Airways to JetLite, which have separate operating codes. JetKonnect offers a no frills flight where meals and other refreshments have to be purchased on board.

Guests flying our Première service available on select routes will enjoy the full meal service identical to the full service product on Jet Airways in all aspects including seats, seat pitch, food and beverage, on-ground offerings such as special check-in counters, lounge access etc. Economy cabin guests will have the option to buy meals on board through the JetCafe service.

JetKonnect serves 49 cities within India with over 430 daily flights with a mix of Boeing and ATR aircraft. With convenient schedules, reliable services and the option of flying Première on select routes, Jet Airlines is committed to make air travel a seamless experience and deliver the best value at all times.
