Jet Airways announces Delhi – Ho Chi Minh City via Bangkok from November 2014

I like the Indian skies these days. In fact, I love them. After years of shutting down international routes due to the problems of the recession and slowing traffic that came with it, airlines of India are daring to dream again. Jet Airways kicked off the year with announcing a flight between Mumbai & Paris, which they started operating since June 2014. Air India followed up with flights to Italy, and Russia.

Now, Jet Airways is stepping up the plate to fly to Ho Chi Minh city, via Bangkok. Jet Airways currently operates once daily flights between Delhi and Bangkok, and will extend the same service further to Ho Chi Minh City (SGN) from there, from November 5, 2014. Hence, the timing of the flight changes from afternoon to morning.

The time table between Delhi – Bangkok currently looks like this:

9W64 DEL1300 – 1835BKK 737 D
9W63 BKK0900 – 1155DEL 737 D

Then, from November 5, 2014, the schedule will look like this:

9W64 DEL0910 – 1435BKK 737 D
9W64 BKK1545 – 1715SGN 737 D

9W63 SGN1815 – 1945BKK 737 D
9W63 BKK2045 – 2355DEL 737 D

These flights also tie in well with the Jet Airways flights between Mumbai and Bangkok, and one can connect between Bangkok and Saigon after flying from Mumbai to Bangkok directly. Here is how that schedule looks like:

9W70 BOM0750 – 1335BKK 737 D
9W64 BKK1545 – 1715SGN 737 D

9W63 SGN1815 – 1945BKK 737 D
9W67 BKK2135 – 0030BOM 737 D

Jet Airways operates these flights on the regionally configured Boeing 737 planes.

As a matter of fact, Jet Airways is offering introductory fares on this route at the moment, but somehow the Mumbai – Ho Chi Minh fares don’t add up for me, as they are about double the Delhi – Ho Chi Minh fares. Clearly, they are not being able to get concessions from Bangkok airport to be able to reduce the price of this flight.

I am guessing these flights are also tying in with the Etihad schedules from the Middle East somehow, to be able to provide travellers on Etihad connectivity to South East Asia.

  1. In the schedule from BOM-BKK, you surely meant 9W 67 from BKK-BOM instead of BKK-DEL, right?
