Mumbai: The grounding of Jet Airways has left the tourism industry a anxious lot as it has led to an average 25% spike in airfares across the sectors leading to massive hotel cancellations, says industry experts. The bulk of these flights are from Mumbai linking it to cities like Kolkata, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Bagdogra, Mangaluru and Amritsar in addition to two additional frequencies on the Mumbai-Delhi-Mumbai sector. All these flights will be operational daily once they commence, starting April 26.

Singh also said that SpiceJet is making all efforts to minimise the passenger inconvenience and "serve" Indian customers who are finding it hard to get seats in this busy season.

Earlier this week, the carrier said it will connect Mumbai to a host of worldwide destinations with direct non-stop flights to Hong Kong, Jeddah, Dubai, Colombo, Dhaka, Riyadh, Bangkok and Kathmandu, starting May-end.

"Jet Airways is hopeful that it will be able to bring the Joy of Flying back to its guests as soon as possible", the airline's statement said.

The government plans to form a committee to temporarily allocate takeoff and landing slots left vacant by the grounding of Jet's flights, a senior official said on Thursday.
