Jet Air to launch Amritsar London flights
12. Jun 2006 at 21:54
 
This is official, as I've read the "Des Pardes" Punjabi Weekly newsapaer, week 26th May 2005 and it mentions that Jet Airways will launch a new daily service (ex.Tuesdays) from Amritsar to London Heathrow NON-STOP (without starting or stopping in Delhi). It plans to use a Airbus 330, recently leased on 1st June 06. The timings are mentioned in it and ticket prices start from £209 ..... I dunno about taxes.

If this is indeed true and if jet airways will use a A330  ( it has more seats and much comfortable than 767), then I along with all the Punjabi NRIs in britain will certainly thank jet airways from the bottom of our hearts and we will use this flight all the time come what may. No more flying to Delhi. Hoo ray, hoo ray.

Smiley In end the Vaheguru has finally listened to the vows of the punjabis .It's best to pay couple of pounds extra rather than humilitated by the air slovakia,turkeminstan ,etc.This is also a wake up call for all substandard russian airlines to improve standards or pack up.I hope by mid of 2007 we will have virgin & BA at Amritsar.

I think that the Jet has cancelled its plan for its Amritsar-London Flight ongoing dispute with Air Sahara. They were supposed to use Air Sahara Crew on this flight and trained them specially for this route...
 
See the Jet Airways Website... no more info about the ATQ - LHR flight  Sad

Dear all
 
Jet Air may has removed its mentions about Amritsar-London flights, but it has been undated on the flight schedule and the flight update page. please visit it.
 
Now I hope that the problem with Air Sahara is over

It looks like the Jet Airways flight from London to Amritsar may not be happening in June now. The article I pasted above from the Jet Airways website is not on there anymore.  
 
The difference with Economy and Premium Economy is like World Traveller Plus on BA, it is a class between Economy and Business Classes.
 
Might need to wait longer for our direct flight from London to Amritsar! cry

Jet Airways have cancelled the first few London to Amritsar flights - 28, 29 and 30 June. The 03 July flight is still scheduled and waiting confirmation. They are still committed to flying the London to Amritsar route but it may not be 6 flights a week now since they are short of aircraft. Will keep everyone posted.

How do you know that LHR-ATQ flights will maybe start on the 14th July? after 2nd daily flight from mumbai to LHR.
 
I think they'll have to use a Airbus 330 or 340.

Jet postpones flights from Amritsar to UK  
 
Press Trust of India  
 
Amritsar, June 27: THE much expected direct flight of Jet Airways from Amritsar to london, which was scheduled to take off from the International Rajasansi Airport on June 28, has been postponed indefinitely.  
 
The officials of the Jet Airways here, have expressed uncertainty about the new dates and also about the fresh schedule of launch.  
 
 
   
Earlier, the Jet Airways was expected to take off on Wednesday, from Amritsar to London. The air service was especially aimed at NRIs from the state and Jet was expected to fly daily, except on Tuesdays.  
 
The Rajasansi Airport had already allotted a slot to Jet Airways, which was expected to operate boeing 747 aircraft on this route, officials said.  
 
Commenting on the reason, a spokesperson of company, A K Shivanandan said, ‘‘We are running short of aircrafts for the operation. Earlier we were looking for Sahara, for the aircraft, but as the deal was not materilised, so it was postponed.’’  
 
When asked about the new dates, he expressed uncertainty over the proposed flight.  
 
At present, there is no direct flight to London from Rajasansi Airport, and three airlines — Uzebekistan, Air Slovakia and Turkemenistan — operate flights to London from here and passengers have to go via Arab Countries or Russia.
