Jet Airways (9W, Mumbai Int'l) is switching its European hub from Brussels National to Amsterdam Schiphol following confirmation it will indeed be pulling out of the Belgian capital on March 27 of next year.

In a statement, Jet Airways said operations at the Dutch commercial centre would come online with effect from March 27 with a daily flight from Mumbai Int'l alongside another daily flight from Delhi Int'l with an onward sector to Toronto Pearson.

"Schedules of all three flights have been planned to allow quick and convenient connections between India and Toronto over Amsterdam," Jet Airways said.

Both routes operate on-board A330-300 aircraft. Jet Airways will however drop New York Newark as a destination as part of the network change.

To help bolster its new scissor hub's viability, Jet Airways has also signed a codeshare agreement with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines (KL, Amsterdam Schiphol) and Delta Air Lines (DL, Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson) wherein the Indian carrier will place its '9W' flightcode on flights to thirty European destinations as well as eleven destinations in the United States and Canada including New York JFK, New York Newark, Washington Dulles, Chicago O'Hare, San Francisco, CA, Los Angeles Int'l, Vancouver Int'l and Montréal Trudeau.
