India’s Jet Airways and subsidiary carrier JetLite migrated the group’s domestic operations to the state-of-the-art Terminal 3 at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport from 14 November 2010.

The migration will see Jet Airways operate the first domestic flight 9W 709 from Delhi at 05:40 while the first incoming flight S2 138 will arrive at DIAL’s new Terminal 3 at 08:20.

The Jet Airways Group will operate more than 74 flights daily out of Delhi. As part of a strategic plan, Jet Airways is developing DIAL’s Terminal 3 into one of its primary international hubs connecting ‘India to the World’. Jet Airways, JetLite and Jet Airways Konnect will thus connect over 29 unique destinations across India, with over 10 international destinations around the world and many more through the airlines operational codeshares.

Commenting on the migration of domestic operations to DIAL’s Terminal 3, Nikos Kardassis, CEO – Jet Airways said, “As one of the largest carriers operating out of Terminal 3, the Jet Airways group is perhaps best poised to offer its guests enhanced comfort and convenience, together with seamless connectivity from India to the World. The integration of domestic and international operations at this world class terminal will allow us to seamlessly transfer guests between international and domestic flights and vice versa. Going forward it will help Jet Airways transform Delhi into a critical international transit hub and I am certain that guests will greatly benefit from the world-class infrastructure of DIAL’s Terminal 3.”

For easy access, Jet Airways’ passengers may enter the Departure terminal from Gate No. 3 of the Terminal 3 (IGI), and proceed towards the check in areas located at the B,C,D level for departure formalities.

The Jet Airways Group will man 32 integrated check-in counters, located at islands C and D, for both domestic and international travel, significantly reducing check-in time for the airline’s guests.

The airline has already been carrying out international flights from Terminal 3 for the past two months to over 10 international destinations.
