Jet Air's San Francisco-Mumbai flight from June 14

May 16, 2008 15:03 IST

Jet Airways will commence a daily service out of San Francisco International Airport to Shanghai and Mumbai from June 14, giving Bay Area travellers another choice when flying to India.

"With the regulatory approval process now finalised for the new route, we are very pleased to enter this new stage of Jet Airways' North American expansion," Jet Airways founder and chairman Naresh Goyal said.

"The launch of this new daily flight out of San Francisco represents a momentous step not only for Jet Airways, but for the Bay Area business community as a whole."

With this launch, Jet Airways will become the first Indian airline to fly from San Francisco to Mumbai and only the second airline worldwide to fly nonstop from San Francisco to Shanghai.

The flight from San Francisco International Airport will also be the airline's fourth daily North American departure to India, following launches of service from New York's JFK and Newark airports, and Toronto Pearson International Airport, within the past year.
