Travelling to India? 10 Reasons to Fly Jet Airways

Travelling to India soon? Here is why Jet Airways is our preferred Airline.


After all the beach holidays around South East Asia, we recommend that India should be your next destination to explore. It has, after all, been gaining huge popularity as a tourist destination this year.

Here’s an insider tip from us to you, Deepavali is the best time to head to India. Deepavali is one of the biggest celebrations in India (almost synonymous to Christmas in America). It’s the time of the year where the whole country is lit up, everyone is out shopping for clothes and there’s always delicious food!

So this Deepavali, book your tickets and fly off to see the beauty of India. While the options of flights are many, we recommend taking Jet Airways. Yes, we’re talking about the same airline where a child was born on this year and was given free flights for life.

Why Jet Airways, you ask? Here are 10 reasons to take Jet Airways when flying to India.

1. Jet Airways Explore India Pass

If you’re out to explore India, then this could be highly beneficial for you. Jet Airways is the only carrier to be having such a program. When you book your tickets and avail of the Explore India Pass, you are provided with a single booking reference for all your domestic and international flights.

What does this mean? In the simplest way we can describe, this means carrying only one ticket instead of multiple ones for all your local journeys. It means having the flexibility of rerouting and changing your internal flights at a minimal fee. And most importantly, this also means having enhanced baggage allowance.

For those of you travelling to India for the first time, majority of local flights only allows 15kgs baggage, having the Explore India Pass means you get the same baggage allowance as your international flights.

2. Guarantee on the Best Fares and Deals when Booking Through the App

With the rise of third party booking websites that claim to get you the best flight deals, it’s easy to succumb. But when travelling with Jet Airways, you are guaranteed the best fares on their website and mobile application.
