April 3rd, 2008 - 7:50 pm ICT by admin  

Mumbai, April 3 (IANS) Jet Airways, the country’s leading private airline, would establish its second European hub at Milan Airport, company chairman Naresh Goyal announced here Thursday. Jet anticipates operating its flights to the US routes via this hub. Goyal said Jet would closely work with European carriers like Air-France-KLM-Alitalia to offer travellers seamless connections between Europe, the US, Canada, Africa and India.

However, the beginning of operations with Milan as a transit point is still being worked out. “We are still chalking out plans, as we are on major expansion,” he said.

Last year, Jet had opened a hub in Brussels. Brussels was chosen as the hub because of unavailability of slots at Heathrow for the US operations.
