Requesting CEO, please operate direct flight to Kannur & Mangalore also.
Thank you

Delayed flights is a big put off, that''s probably the only reason i will think twice before booking on Jazeera Airways. And this i say from my recent experience flying with them.
Another point being i thought they were a Budget Carrier/Low cost carrier, but looking at the fare they are at par with most other airlines operating.
