Am leaving on a JET plane


India’s JET Airways is starting direct flights between Mumbai and Singapore next week (April 14). They have made it clear that they will not be starting a price war. Their fares are likely to 10 – 15% cheaper than existing fares. Jet Airways has been coming out with full page ads in local newspapers to create an awareness in the market. Civil Aviation Authorities of India and Singapore met last month and they have not been able to reach an accord which will result in more flights and lower fares. Air fares to India are higher than airfares from Singapore to London & Australia. This is ridiculous. The fare structure is likely to remain so for some time.

The disappointing news is that the popular Chennai – Singapore sector has not been opened up to Jet and Sahara. They will only be allowed to fly the Chennai – Kuala Lumpur route. According to the market buzz budget carrier JetStar Asia might start operating in the Singapore – Kolkata sector.


  • Great news for air travelers.This would greatly encourage tourism between both these countries..
