The second-largest airline in India, Jet Airways operates 300 daily flights to destinations all around the world. This full-service, international airline is based in Mumbai at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport. It covers an extensive network of routes within India and in the surrounding subcontinent regions, as well as an extensive international network. Jet Airways has numerous transatlantic connections through Amsterdam Schiphol Airport and flies directly to Toronto as well.
Jet Airways was incorporated as a limited liability company in 1992, beginning operations as an air taxi service in 1993. It became a full-fledged scheduled airline offering domestic flights in 1995 and completed its first international flight from Chennai to Colombo in 2004. In 2008, Jet Airways entered into a code-sharing alliance on both domestic and international flights, transforming the airline into a truly worldwide carrier. Though it has had to compete with low-cost carriers, Jet Airways has successfully navigated a merger with its own low-cost carrier and the opening of a hub in Amsterdam to remain a popular option among travellers with almost 20% of the passenger market share.
Jet Airways Destinations
Aside from its base in Mumbai, Jet Airways also has major hubs in Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore, Kolkata, Pune, and Amsterdam. The airline flies to over 60 different destinations in 15 countries on the continents of Asia, Europe, and North America. Canadian travellers from Toronto who fly into one of Jet Airways’ hub cities can go on to explore countries such as Bangladesh, Malaysia, Thailand, United Arab Emirates. They can also use Jet Airways’ vast regional network to explore India. Jet Airways opens up travel not only to India’s major hubs but to some of its smaller regional locales as well.

Jet Airways now offers kiosk check-in at several airports across India, following the trend set by airlines across the world.

Web and mobile check-in are both available out of most of Jet Airways destinations. Passengers who use web or mobile check-in must be at the airport 45 minutes prior to domestic departures and 60 minutes prior to international departures.
For a small fee, all passengers on domestic and international flights can reserve a seat from the time of their booking to 12, 24, or 72 hours before departure depending on the specific flight. You will have the option to pay extra for bulkhead and exit row seats, which offer more legroom.

Platinum and Gold members are entitled to a maximum carry-on baggage weight of 10 kg. The weight of allowable carry-on baggage for international flights depends on class, with economy class passengers entitled up to 7 kg and first class and Première passengers entitled up to 10 kg. Guests may also carry on items such as coats, walking sticks, handbags, umbrellas, cameras, and books.
When flying with Jet Airways, you will typically be allowed at least one piece of check-in baggage.

Your booking or e-ticket will inform you of the maximum allowable weight of a free piece of check-in baggage. Any piece of baggage which exceeds a total dimension of 150 cm will be subject to a USD 150 oversize charge.
