KSA again negleted by Indian Government
Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
The total entitlement for Indian carriers on the Gulf routes
at present is 85,481 seats per week, of which
- 21950 are for Dubai,
- 7420 for Abu Dhabi,
- 10206 for Sharjah,
- 8000 for Kuwait,
- 10892 for Qatar,
- 7546 for Oman,
- 10967 for Bahrain and
- 8500 ONLY for the entire Saudi Arabia
Now Jet Airways has been permitted to carry 3,682 passengers to
Kuwait per week from three destinations in India.
Of the 3,682 seats, 1,582 would be from the Delhi-Kuwait route
while an equal number 1,050 each on Trivandrum and Kochi routes.
In addition, Jet can also fly 3,150 passengers to Oman per week
on three routes Kochi-Muscat and Trivandrum-Muscat and Calicut-Muscat.
The airliner has been given permission to connect Calicut and
Mumbai to Qatar's capital city Doha, where it can carry a maximum
of 2,100 passengers per week.
Similarly, Jet can operate 2,100 seats to Bahrain, of which
1,050 can be on the Mumbai-Bahrain and 1,050 on Kochi-Bahrain
.... and Frustratingly NOTHING again for Saudi Arabia.
