It was a special day when two of India’s largest entities joined hands in the service of the People of Bangladesh – Apollo Hospitals Group and Jet Airways announced their joint service ‘FLY FOR GOOD HEALTH PROGRAM’. This was facilitated by Health Connect International-Bangladesh, a medical consultancy firm. The launch was announced at a joint press meet of Apollo Hospitals and Jet Airways at Dhaka Press Club.

The Jet offer is a very unique offer and possibly the first of its kind where two major Indian entities have joined hands to provide such a service to our brothers and sisters in Bangladesh, which has become a home away from home. We would also like to announce the Apollo Connect Initiative by our partner Health Connect International and this would be unique service to provide free second medical opinion and I would like to invite all the clinics and doctors to join us in this initiative.

This unique travel option in collaboration with Apollo Hospitals Group is one more initiative aimed at making air travel more cost-effective for those seeking medical support at a premier institution.
