Jet Airways on Tuesday said it will start daily non-stop flights from Mumbai to Johannesburg from April 14.
The carrier will deploy Airbus 330-200 aircraft for the new service, it said in a statement.
"Given the strong linkages between India and South Africa, and the large number of people of Indian origin living in South Africa, we believe that there is untapped potential and this new route promises to serve the needs of our
discerning corporate and leisure travelers," Jet Airways CEO Nikos Kardassis said.
Johannesburg will be the twenty-second destination in the airline's international network. Jet Airways has services to New York, Toronto, Brussels, London (Heathrow), Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Colombo, Bangkok, Kathmandu, Dhaka, Kuwait, Bahrain, Muscat, Doha, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Jeddah, Sharjah and Riyadh.
