This year assumes a greater significance as Jet Airways reaches a momentous milestone of 25 years of service in the Indian skies. The Mumbai Marathon truly symbolises Jet Airways’ pervading spirit of camaraderie and family bonding as well as the relentless efforts of its employees to constantly innovate and push the boundaries of service excellence. It is also a fitting tribute to the city of Mumbai’s spirit that espouses hope, inspiration and a can-do attitude.”
