India airline Jet Airways will launch daily thru-flights to Bangalore (Bengaluru) from three North American gateways beginning October 31. With the introduction of transatlantic service to Bangalore, Jet Airways will operate 12 daily connections from New York JFK, Newark and Toronto to four Indian cities (Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and, now, Bangalore), through its European hub in Brussels. Flights in both directions are timed so that travelers can easily make connections. Through its codeshare agreements with American Airlines and Brussels Airlines, Jet Airways also offers passengers easy connections to six other U.S. cities (Washington, DC; Dallas; Boston; Cleveland; Baltimore; and Raleigh-Durham) and five additional destinations in Europe (Birmingham, Madrid, Barcelona, Berlin and Lyon).
