  • Jet Airways has added non-stop flights from two more Indian airports to Doha (DOH) in Qatar. On Sunday 15 March the Etihad Airways partner airline began thrice-weekly flights from both Kozhikode (CCJ) and Thiruvananthapuram (TRV). The former 3,005-kilometre route will see the airline compete with Qatar Airways (daily flights) and Air India Express (twice-weekly flights), while the latter 3,264-kilometre route will face competition from just Qatar Airways (daily flights). According to a Jet Airways press release from last September, both of these routes were supposed to start on 1 December 2014 and be operated on a daily basis using 737-800s on both routes. In fact, both routes will increase in frequency to daily flights from 31 May 2015. The Indian carrier already operates daily flights to Doha from Delhi and Kochi, as well as twice-daily flights from Mumbai. Jet Airways’ only other international service from Kozhikode is to Dammam in Saudi Arabia, while from Thiruvananthapuram the carrier serves Dammam and Muscat in Oman.
