Jet Airways reportedly announced plans to add six additional B737 aircraft to the fleet of Jet Airways Konnect, its new all Economy service, and replace full service off-peak flight on metro routes with Konnect services (The Economic Times, 18-Sep-09). The transfers are expected to be completed over the next two to three months. Jet Airways Konnect already operates 130 services per day with a fleet of 11 B737 aircraft. Jet Airways reportedly stated that Jet Airways Konnect has reduced yields by 10%, partially attributed to a 30-35% gap between the parent and subsidiary’s fares, however, increased seat factor on Konnect by 20-25%.
