Jet to fly full services on all-economy JetKonnect

In a bid to take on competition from Tata-SIA's Vistara airline which is yet to start operations, Jet Airways on  Thursday announced launch of full services even on its all-economy subsidiary JetKonnect from December and plans to consolidate into a single-brand.

Full-service product with complementary meal service would be provided on all domestic flights from 1  December, with the buy-on-board concept being discontinued, an airline statement said. The announcement was in line with its recent announcement of a uniform 'single brand', with Jet Airways commencing streamlining and aligning its domestic operations into 'a single full service product to provide an enhanced and consistent product experience,' the statement said.

'As the first of many upcoming initiatives, all guests booking flights on or after 15 September for travel on or after 1 December, will enjoy the full service experience onboard all Jet Airways and JetKonnect-operated flights across the domestic network,' it said.

It said the 'Sky Cafe' or Jet's buy-on-board service would be discontinued. Passengers currently booked on JetKonnect flights (holding flight numbers starting with S2), for travel from 1 December onwards would enjoy complementary meals, the statement added.

Industry sources said the move comes in timely as Air India, after joining Star Alliance, has enhanced its on-board product offerings and new full-service airline Vistara is getting ready to launch its flights in the next few months.
