Image: Boeing 737-800 VT-JGH of the new Jet Airways Konnect landing at Bangalore

Jet Airways recently launched its low cost service called Jet Airways Konnect. A while back I managed to catch one of the Boeing 737-800s of the new Konnect service at Bangalore airport.


VT-JGH slows down after landing on runway 27 in front of the iconic air traffic control tower of the Bengaluru International Airport. Just love the complex wing with all its parts opened out – flaps, slats, and spoilers along with the reverse thrusters on the CFM56 engines.

In the background is the tail of one of the Airbus A330-203s of Kingfisher Airlines.
