Jet Airways 45 destinations include most of the big cities in India. International destinations include Kathmandu, Colombo, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and London's Heathrow Airport and will soon start serving Bangkok, Brussels and Newark. Jet Airways was the first private airline in India to fly to international destinations. It started international operations in March 2004 between Chennai and Colombo after it had been cleared by the Government of India to operate scheduled services to international destinations.
Subsequently, a second route linking Mumbai with Colombo and a new route between Delhi and Kathmandu were added. The latter commenced in May 2004. On December 29, 2004 the Government of India decided in principle to permit privately owned Indian carriers to operate scheduled air services to any international destination world-wide (outside of Pakistan) with the exception of the Gulf countries, i.e. Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
Another effect of this stipulation was that, apart from Jet Airways itself, Air Sahara was the only other privately owned Indian carrier permitted to operate international scheduled services.
Jet Airways sought to take maximum advantage of this ruling by adding new international scheduled routes to destinations within the commercially viable flying range of its growing fleet of "Next Generation" Boeing 737-700/800 series narrowbodied jets, such as Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.
Jet Airways was incorporated as an "air taxi" operator on 1 April 1992. It started commercial airline operations on 5 May 1993 with a fleet of 4 Boeing 737-300 aircraf, with 24 daily flights serving 12 destinations.
