Whilst researching how to get to Nagaland, I have come across domestic flights with JetKonnect, from Kolkata to Dimapur.

Is this the new version of "Jet Lite" ?

Does anyone have any experience with them?

For flights at the end of November they are charging 2,863 Rs per person for a one way ticket Kolkata -> Dimapur, for a two hour flight. (This is from the "Make My Trip" site.)

Air India also flies on this route at a similar price.

For flights on the last day of November (in other words, on cue for attendance at the Hornbill Festival which starts 1st December), the prices are 4,043 Rs per person for a one way ticket Kolkata -> Dimapur.

Any tips on flying this route would be appreciated.

(I am looking at one-way fares only.)

Hi TD

I flew JetKonnect between Del-Srinagar on 1st August and Leh-Delhi on 12th August. Apart from the fact that you do not get a meal on board included in the ticket price, it's the same as Jet airways! You may pre-book a hot meal (option on the website) OR buy on board.

I could not tell whether they were Jetlite aircraft either (looked good to me!). I'd not recommend Air India by a long margin but would happily fly JetKonnect again!

If you book your ticket through the Jet Airways own website, it will cost you lesser by around two hundred rupees.

The three times I flew JetKonnect (between Hyderabad - Tirupati and Bangalore - Hyderabad), the aircraft was ATR turboprop, a bit noisy, a litlle cramped and the flight duration was also longer. Yes, food is available for sale on board.

I did not find the fares any cheaper but that may be due to the fact that it was at short notice and I was lazy enough to book them with a travel agent.

I think the Kolkata-Dimapur flight will also be a ATR turboprop (as the flight duration is 2 hours, as stated by TD).

Regarding Jet Lite, it was merged with Jet Konnect sometime in this year only, most probably in the first quarter.

@ hyderabadi - I think the aircraft is dependent on the sector - I've flown Bangalore-Goa in Jet airways (full service) turboprop - back in 2005 (When JetKonnect wasnt launched). Both my flights in last couple weeks were Boeings, the Leh-Delhi was an especially good one (even the hostesses were upto the Jet airways standard! :P).

@ biman - good idea regd using the website (i booked my Leh-delhi on a short notice last week using the site and saved Rs 190 compared to cleartrip). There's a discount applied at the end for some reason.

Biman - This time, I may not come around to a report. Trip was too intense emotionally , atleast in parts.
