Jet Airways Ltd., India's biggest domestic airline, said it will expand its international operations with new flights to Bangkok in late January and flights to the United States late this year.

Jet Airways said on Tuesday it plans to launch a regular U.S. service in August, flying to Newark, New Jersey, and to San Francisco via Shanghai in October, executives said.

The airline will use eight new Boeing 777s and five Airbus 330s, already ordered, on its international routes this year on top of six Boeing 737s for its Indian domestic service, chairman Naresh Goyal told reporters.

"Our international operations will grow to account for about 50 percent of our total revenues in a few years," Goyal said, announcing Jet Airways' 14 weekly flights between Bangkok, Delhi and Kolkata.

Me thinks they will make a killing. The India-PVG-SFO route will make them a lot of dough.

Does the India-US bilateral allow for local traffic between China and the USA?

As much as I may get blasted for this, the world does not revolve around LAX and JFK and there are other potential markets outside LAX and JFK. SFO has no Indian carriers and there is a market to be tapped. There could be a possibility that in two years there will be three Indian carriers serving SFO ie: Air India, Kingfisher and Jet Airways.

That is fantastic news. I hope 9W provides connections to south indian cities from the Mumbai international terminal without having to go thru customs and immigration in BOM. I guess this would be the fastest route to BOM from the west-coast barring EVA's SFO-TPE-BOM (maybe)

Duh.. the two most populated desi cities (including the SJ bay area) separated by the largest distance.

Great news for 9W - hopefully they'll have convenient connections at both end enabling say a BOM-SFO-LAS type sector or BLR-BOM-SFO and return.

And maybe it's time for 9W to start thinking of joining one of the global alliances?

Last month's (December, 2006) (I don't remember which week though) issue of Aviation Week has a bit of news on this matter.
1] US DOT has cleared 9W to start flights to US. And they plan to start New York (I dont remember JFK or EWR) and SFO flight later in 2007.
2] AI to join star (as 21st member) after their merger with Indian in April.

Now Jet and AI have both made into news for years (AI for a decade now) that they are starting service to SFO.
Lets wait and watch if they really do. Or it gets slippery in the red tape in either country or even within the airlines themselves.

By the way how far behind is KingFisher in this race? anybody knows ?

Kingfisher needs to complete five years of domestic flying before they can fly international. However, it is expected that this rule may be relaxed to three years, which will make Kingfisher eligible to fly international in 2008.

While that would be logical for both *A and 9W, unfortunately *A has been wooing AI/IC for the past few years, and now they seem to be close to formally joining *A. Which then means it's close to impossible to get 9W in as well.

not at this stage , at least according to the quote below


http://www.bangkokpost.com/Business/10Jan2007_biz48.php

Jet Airways, India's largest private airline, has formed a commercial partnership with Thai Airways International as part of its strategy to expand its operations with international carriers on a bilateral basis. The Mumbai-based carrier has opted for bilateral arrangements rather than joining global airline alliances such as Star Alliance, Oneworld or Skyteam, which entail complications such as adopting common operation systems.

In addition to THAI, Jet has struck earlier deals with Lufthansa and British Airways.

''We are not joining any alliance at this time because we are new. We will have bilateral relationships with different countries,'' Jet chairman Naresh Goyal said in an interview in Bangkok yesterday.


in reality I expect that they are talking to everyone and waiting to see who offers the most favourable terms  Wink

The India China aviation pact was revised in 2005.

Link:

http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/...04/12/stories/2005041202810300.htm

Excerpt:
The civil aviation agreement seeks to increase the flight frequencies of designated airlines of each side to 14 per week on the IATA summer season of 2005, that would go up to 28 flights during the winter season and to 42 flights during the summer season of 2006. At present, each side operates seven flights a week.

The two sides would also adopt 'open skies' policy for cargo with unlimited capacity entitlement for dedicated cargo services.

Agreement has also been reached to simplify visa procedures for operating and cabin crew and employment of foreign pilots by the designated airlines of either side. The airlines would also be allowed to dry lease aircraft for both combination services and cargo sharing services.

Under the MoU, designated airlines of both parties are entitled to have unlimited third, fourth and fifth freedom traffic rights while they can co-terminalise any two points in its own territory and/or any two points in the territory of the other party without a cabotage rights with the exception for airlines designated by India to combine Beijing and Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou, Shanghai and Guangzhaou.

It's great to see a new carrier coming to SFO. The Silicn Valley will greatly benefit from this service, and as mentioned above, will most likely bring in a lot money for Jet Airways.

Quoting Planemanofnz (Reply 3):

Why not? LAX and JFK are not the only main airports in the US. And serving SFO will probably be more beneficial for Jet than serving LAX which has competition. It's only common sense.

from all the reports I have read "unnamed sources" at AI said that they would be announcing last month that AI would join Star - if it was announced I missed it - certainly Star haven't said anything ...... yet

With United winning the dogfight for the PEK-US market, I wonder whether 9W or AI would try to exploit their fifth freedom rights from PEK to the US like a DEL-PEK-LAX route given that 9W would start BOM-PVG-SFO.

I also wonder why the Chinese carriers haven't jumped on this China-India route with connections to the US? A BLR-PVG-SFO route would be an instant success.

They would not be able to issue tix. on SFO-EWR. A long leg to be wasted without traffic rights. It they could do a SFO-Europe leg instead - that would be an awesome RTW flight.
