The Netherlands Ambassador to India Alphonsus Stoelinga was present on the occasion at Delhi airport, while the Netherlands Consul General Geoffrey van Leeuwen was among those at the event at Mumbai airport, it added.

"Today (Sunday) marks the start of our new service connecting three continents, together with our code share partners KLM and Delta Air Lines," Jet Airways chairman Naresh Goyal said in the statement.

"We are happy to operate daily flights to Amsterdam from Mumbai, Delhi and Toronto, thereby providing greater choice and connectivity to our guests and facilitating trade and co-operation between India and the Netherlands.

"Through Amsterdam our new European gateway and along with our codeshare partners, we will now offer seamless connectivity to over 30 destinations in Europe and 11 destinations in the United States and Canada to our guests," he added.

The relocation of the Indian carrier's European gateway from Brussels has taken place even as the airport at the Belgian capital was the target of suicide bomb attacks last Tuesday that killed over 10 people and injured many, including two Jet Airways staffers.
