Jet Airways is a major Indian airline based in Mumbai. It is the second largest airline in India, both, in terms of market share and passengers carried, after IndiGo. It operates over 3000 flights daily to 76 destinations worldwide. Its main hub is Mumbai, with secondary hubs at Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Bengaluru.
Jet Airways serves 52 domestic destinations and 21 international destinations, a total of 73 in 19 countries across Asia, Europe and North America. Short-haul destinations are served using Boeing 737 Next Generation. ATR 72-500s are used only on domestic regional routes, while long-haul routes are served using its Airbus A330-200 and Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. London, England was the airline's first long-haul destination and was launched in 2005. Since 2007 Jet Airways has had a scissors hub at Brussels Airport in Belgium for onward trans-atlantic connections to Canada and the United States.
The recession forced Jet Airways to discontinue the following routes: Ahmedabad–London, Birmingham-Brussels, Amritsar–London, Bangalore–Brussels, Mumbai–Shanghai–San Francisco and Brussels-New York City. It also had to put an indefinite delay on its expansion plans. Jet Airways was forced to lease out seven of its ten Boeing 777-300ERs to survive the financial crunch. Due to the recession all flights to North America were operated on an Airbus A330-200 replacing the Boeing 777-300ERs. It also had to sell a brand-new, yet-to-be-delivered Boeing 777-300ER in 2009 and had to defer all new aircraft deliveries by at least two years. The airline planned to restore the Mumbai-Shanghai route by the end of 2011 but never went through with it. As the economic crisis in the eurozone countries worsened, Jet also closed the Delhi-Milan route. Jet Airways is planning to relaunch service to New York's JFK International Airport via Abu Dhabi starting 1 May 2014.
