Jet Airways will start direct services between Mumbai and Manchester from November 5, with five flights every week.

A wide-body A330-200 aircraft, having 254 seats, would be deployed for the direct flight to Manchester in the UK, the airline said Wednesday.

It would operate the flight five days a week including Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

Manchester would be the 21st international destination for Jet Airways and fifth non-stop service to and from the UK.

In May, the full service carrier announced launching of Mumbai-Manchester flight from November.

“Jet Airways’ flight 9W 130 will depart from Mumbai at 0230 hours and arrive in Manchester’s Terminal 2 at 0755 hours (local time).

“The return flight, 9W 129 will depart from Manchester at 0930 hrs (local time) and arrive in Mumbai’s Terminal 2 at 0040 hours,” the release said.

Currently, Jet Airways operates three daily non-stop Mumbai–London flights and a daily service between Delhi and London.

“The launch of five days a week flights to Manchester enhances Jet Airways’ cargo capacity to approximately 1,550 tonnes a week between India,” the release said.

At present, Jet Airways operates a fleet of 123 aircraft. —PTI
