Press Release Summary: September 08, 2008: Jet Airways, India’s premier
international airline, will re-introduce their daily operations on the
Pune-Bengaluru-Pune sectors, becoming the ONLY airline to offer its passengers a
same day return service between the two cities, effective September 11, 2008

Press Release Body: Jet Airways will commence daily operations on the sector with an
advanced, Next-Generation Boeing 737 aircraft, complementing the airline’s existing
(six days a week) service on the sector.

Flight 9W 460* (Pune-Bengaluru) will depart Pune at 0620 hrs, arriving in Bengaluru
at 0740 hrs. On the return leg, flight 9W 459 (Bengaluru-Pune) will depart Bengaluru

early morning departure from Pune and arrival in Bengaluru. The airline will also
operate the last direct service out of Bengaluru to Pune, offering business
travellers a full day to complete their work and return home, without the bother of
an overnight stay.

Announcing the launch, Mr. Wolfgang Prock-Schauer, CEO, Jet Airways said, “The
Pune-Bengaluru sector enjoys a lot of business traffic, and the demand for a premium
daily service between the two established IT hubs, specifically tailored to suit the
corporate travellers’ schedule was high. As the only airline offering a
same-business day return service between the two cities, we expect the new flights
to prove very popular with passengers.”
