Jet Airways will launch a new Hyderabad-Dubai flight from August 16, the leading private carrier's fifth daily service to the Gulf city and second from Southern India.
The airlines will deploy Boeing 737-800 aircraft on the lucrative route. Currently, the Naresh Goyal-led carrier operates twice daily services to Dubai from Mumbai, and daily from Delhi and Chennai.
"With the growing popularity of Dubai as a leading business and leisure destination, there has been an increasing demand for enhanced air connectivity to the Gulf emirate from Southern India," Jet Chief Executive Wolfgang Prock-Schauer said in a release in Hyderabad on Saturday.
"We are confident that the new service from Hyderabad will be well appreciated by travellers and will complement our existing services from India," he said.
With the introduction of the new service, Jet will operate 17 frequencies to seven destinations in the Gulf, including Kuwait, Bahrain, Muscat, Doha, Abu Dhai, Jeddah and Dubai from several Indian cities.
