New Delhi, Sep 27 (IANS) India's private airline Jet Airways Wednesday announced its entry into car rental business as a part of its diversification process.

The company launched a separate entity Jetfleet by signing a franchisee agreement with Europcar, Europe's leading car rental company, to start its operations in 13 cities in India.

'We will commence operations in New Delhi on Oct 3 followed by Bangalore in early November and Mumbai by early December,' Gautam Nath, Jetfleet's country manager, told reporters.

'To begin with, the Delhi operations will start with 30 cars but the fleet will be expanded soon.'

'The agreement with Europcar will help Jetfleet provide its customers truly international personalised mobility solutions,' said Douglas Hunt, chief executive officer, Europcar (Asia-Pacific).

Jetfleet vehicles will be fitted with laptop chargers and will have mini refrigerators. It will also have a state-of-the-art global positioning system.

'Initially we will offer only chauffer-driven cars but soon there will be self-driven cars on rent,' said M.M. Sadri, director, Jetfleet.
