Jayaraj Shanmugam, Chief Commercial Officer, Jet Airways, said “The introduction of this new service is in keeping with the growing popularity amongst our guests, for enhanced seamless connectivity between the ASEAN region and India.

“Over the past two years, there has been an encouraging 15% year-on-year growth from Singapore to South Indian cities,” the airline said.

Apart from business travellers, there is also growth in visit friends & relatives and leisure traffic movement to Bengaluru due to its many tourist attractions and pleasant weather conditions.

The airline will deploy Boeing 737-800 Next Generation (NG) aircraft on this route.
