The domestic carrier is all set to commence operations from Dutch capital Amsterdam with daily non-stop flights from Delhi, Mumbai and Toronto from March 27. As of now Brussels is its European hub for international services.
The Mumbai-based private airline has also entered into a codeshare partnership with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and Delta Air Lines to provide convenient connections for passengers to and from destinations across Europe and North America via Amsterdam.
"I work with partners. For me bilaterally is the way that this airline has always grown. And we work with all the airlines across all the three alliances. They have partners with Star (Alliance), OneWorld and Sky Team. All of them are our partners. And they work bilaterally," Jet Airways
Whole-Time Director Guarang Shetty told reporters here.
Star Alliance, OneWorld and Sky Team are the global airlines' clubs providing marketing branding to facilitate travellers making inter-airline codeshare connections within countries. Among the two domestic carriers -- Air India and Jet Airways -- flying international, only the former has
joined one of these clubs. Air India became a part of 27-member Star Alliance in July 2014.
The now-defunct Kingfisher Airlines had also announced its plans to join Oneworld but it stopped operations before it could be granted the membership.
The SkyTeam had reportedly evinced interest in taking Jet Airways onboard after one of its members Etihad Airways picked up 24 per cent stake in it. "It is all about being bilateral where there is branding, it is not about conflict. It is about offering choice (to passengers). For me its is all about choice," he said.
He said the strategic partnership with KLM and Delta Air Lines will offer one stop codeshare access to 30 destinations across Europe and 11 destinations in the US and Canada.
