Private carrier Jet Airways will launch flight from Mumbai to Saudi Arabian capital Riyadh from Aug 6, the airline said Wednesday.
"The airline will launch four services a week on the Mumbai-Riyadh sector - on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays," Jet said in a statement.
Riyadh will be Jet's second destination in Saudi Arabia as it has already launched services to Jeddah. Jet flies to six other cities in the Gulf.
The airline would fly the state-of-the-art Boeing 737-800 aircraft on the Mumbai-Riyadh route.
Jet chief executive Wolfgang Prock-Schauer said the launch of flight to the new sector would further reinforce the airline's position as a leading carrier in the Indo-Gulf sector.
Jet will also launch daily service to Dubai from Hyderabad, its fifth daily service to the Gulf, and to Bangkok from Mumbai from Aug 16.
In addition the airline will also launch Kochi-Sharjah flight from Sep 1.
