Jet Airways expands cargo capacity on Heathrow belly route

Jet Airways expands cargo capacity on Heathrow belly route

Jet Airways is to add a third daily flight between Mumbai International Airport and London Heathrow Airport using a Boeing 777-300ER.

The Indian carrier says the new service will boost cargo capacity between the UK and India by almost 33 per cent, allowing the airline to capitalise on the growing round-the-year demand being witnessed between the UK and India, on the back of fast expanding relationships in the areas of trade, commerce, tourism, culture, and education.

The airline says the third daily service will expand cargo capacity and promote greater access from Heathrow to destinations in the SAARC and ASEAN region, for commodities such as perishables, pharmaceuticals, engineering goods, garments & fabrics, packaged food, and specialised medical equipment and supplies.

The third daily Heathrow service will also provide onward connectivity to 21 destinations in India including growing cargo gateways such as Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Kolkata, Delhi, and Hyderabad and international cargo hubs such as Bangkok, Colombo, Dhaka, Kathmandu and Singapore.
