With a slew of restructuring measures paying off and the economy rebounding, Jet Airways has reported a 33 per cent increase in its domestic passenger traffic for the month of November 2009, as compared to the same period last year.
The airlines’ international passenger traffic has also registered a growth of 19 per cent on a seat factor of 81.9 per cent in November 2009, the airline said.
JetLite, the wholly owned subsidiary of Jet Airways has also done well in increasing its passenger traffic by 22 per cent and a seat factor of 76.7 per cent in the month of November 2009.
“Our improved performance in November 2009 is largely due rise in domestic and international travel following the recovery in the economy and a series of restructuring exercise undertaken recently,” Nikos Kardassis, CEO, Jet Airways told Hindustan Times.
“We have also seen rise in the yields. For December and January we have seen encouraging bookings and expect these months to be better than November,” he said.
In a bid to create a larger customer base and offer enhanced services to its international and domestic travelers, Jet Airways plans to develop Delhi and Mumbai as major hubs to international destinations.
