Jet Airways has announced that from November 5 it will launch the first non-stop service between Manchester and Mumbai.

Further strengthening its flight offering in the UK and its commitment to opening up travel to India for UK business and leisure travellers, the service will operate four days a week including Monday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

Manchester will become the 66th addition to the carrier's network and its 21st international destination. With the introduction of the new flight - the carrier’s fifth non-stop service to/from the UK, Jet Airways will also become the largest carrier between Mumbai and the UK.

The launch of the new service will provide seamless connectivity to nearly 35 domestic destinations to and from India which include Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Bhuj, Bhopal, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Coimbatore, Delhi, Goa, Hyderabad, Indore, Aurangabad, Jaipur, Chennai, Nagpur, Rajkot, Raipur, Udaipur, via the airline’s HUB, Mumbai. Similarly, quick connections to further points on the carrier's international network such as Bangkok, Colombo, Hong Kong, Singapore, Dhaka and Kathmandu, will now be available.

The new service will complement the carrier’s existing three daily, non-stop services between Heathrow and Mumbai, and once a day service between Heathrow and Delhi.

Flights are available to book at jetairways.com, with fares starting at £400 return.
