Unfortunately, in 2014, Jet Konnect ceased flying operations and merged with Jet Airways.
Jet Airways had previously launched Jet Konnect in 2009 as a low-cost brand. Jet Konnect had operated a fleet of Boeing 737 Next Generation and ATR 72 aircraft and operated on profitable short-haul routes with higher passenger load factors.
In March 2012, Jet Airways merged the JetLite brand into Jet Konnect and started offering business class seats after the shut down of Kingfisher Airlines. In August 2014, it would phase out Jet Konnect by the end of the year as part of plans to re-position itself as a uniform full-service operator. In December 2014, Jet Konnect was fully merged with Jet Airways, making it the third full service airline in India besides Air India and Vistara.
As Jet Konnect was part of Jet Airways, it flew to various destinations within India. The specific routes served by Jet Konnect varied over time based on market demand and operational factors. Some of the common domestic destinations served by Jet Konnect included major cities such as Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Ahmedabad, among others.
Passengers were allowed to carry one piece of cabin baggage weighing up to 7 kg (15 lbs) with maximum dimensions of 115 cm (55 cm + 35 cm + 25 cm).
The free checked baggage allowance depended on the fare class, route and JetPrivilege (Jet Airways' frequent flyer program) membership status. As a general guideline, Economy Class passengers typically had a checked baggage allowance of 15 kg (33 lbs) for domestic flights. However, passengers with higher fare classes or elite membership status could have received a higher baggage allowance.
Passengers were required to arrive at the airport with sufficient time before their scheduled departure to complete the check-in process. The recommended check-in time for domestic flights was typically 2 hours prior to departure. Passengers could proceed to the designated Jet Konnect/Jet Airways check-in counters at the airport. These counters were usually located in the departure hall or terminal.
Two cabin classes were available on Jet Konnect flights - Economy and Business.
This was the standard class available to most passengers. It provided comfortable seating, in-flight meals or snacks depending on the duration of the flight and access to in-flight entertainment (if available).
Jet Konnect also offered a Business Class cabin for passengers seeking a higher level of comfort and service. Business Class passengers enjoyed additional benefits such as priority check-in, access to dedicated lounges at select airports, extra legroom, enhanced meal options and a more personalised level of service.
Jet Konnect had a frequent flyer program called JetPrivilege, which was the loyalty program of Jet Airways. JetPrivilege allowed passengers to earn and redeem miles for flights, upgrades and various rewards.
JetPrivilege allowed members to earn JPMiles, the program's reward currency, by flying with Jet Airways or its partner airlines. JPMiles could also be earned through non-flight activities such as hotel stays, car rentals, shopping and dining with program partners.
JetPrivilege had different membership tiers based on the number of JPMiles earned or the number of flights taken within a specified time period. The tiers were Blue, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Platinum Privilege Elite. Each tier offered additional benefits and privileges, such as bonus miles, priority services, lounge access and extra baggage allowance.
Jet Konnect wasn't a member of any airline alliance.
