India’s premier domestic airline, Jet Airways, has decided to introduce 2 B737s to its fleet in May. JetKonnect, the low cost brand of Jet Airways will soon get business class segment as the demand for its premium card holders – silver, gold and platinum members has grown.
"We will lease 2 Boeing aircraft from leasing company BOC Aviation. It would be deployed on domestic and short-haul international routes," a couple of sources familiar with the development said. The airline had been very quick to respond to recessionary trend in the sector. It leased out jets to foreign carriers and converted its flights into all economy class called JetKonnect. It will introduce 8 business class seats in all JetKonnect aircraft except ATRs (Avions de Transport Regional). The introduction of business class seats in 8 aircrafts have been a hit with the passengers.
