Jet Airways has enhanced connectivity between India, Europe and North America with launch of daily Amsterdam Airport Schiphol bellyhold flights.

Effective from 27 March 2016, the Indian carrier will operate two daily non-stop flights from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, one each to its hubs in Mumbai and New Delhi.

Jet says there are benefits for cargo customers as Schiphol is one of the largest gateways in Europe provides greater options for freight customers.

The carrier says flights from Amsterdam will benefit exports from the Netherlands including pharmaceuticals, specialised medical equipment, food and horticultural products, by facilitating access to Jet’s network across the vast Indian market.

Jet Airways will also operate a daily flight to Toronto from Amsterdam. Schedules of all three flights have been planned to allow quick and convenient connections between India and Toronto via Amsterdam.

Jet Airways chairman, Naresh Goyal says: “India’s trade relations with the Netherlands go back over 400 years and have continued to prosper in the modern age. The recent meeting between the Prime Ministers of India and the Netherlands has given a new impetus to this relationship.

“The new direct services by Jet Airways will facilitate greater engagement and co-operation between India and the Netherlands. As one of the fastest growing economies in the world, India has emerged as a key destination.

“Initiatives such as ‘Make in India’ and ‘Startup India’ launched by the Government of India have given a boost for foreign investment and trade.”
