Jet airways may resume services in the summer of next year.
Earlier, we had reported that Jet airways has found a new owner.
If the consortium led by Murari Lal Jalan and Kalrock Capital gets regulatory and NCLT approval, including the reinstatement of slots and the bilateral traffic rights by Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) and Ministry of Civil Aviation, then the airline may resume flying in the summer of next year.
“Jet Airways has been a brand with a glorious history of over 25 years, and it is the vision of the Consortium to put Jet Airways back in the skies at the earliest opportunity. We aim to re-energise the brand by infusing energy, warmth, and vibrancy into it while making it bigger and better. Over the years, the brand has created loyal customers and we wish to bring in freshness by adding value – an Indian brand with a global outlook, warm yet professional which symbolises the New India, Young India. With the revival of Jet Airways, it will restore the confidence among the Jet customers to fly again and experience its world-class facilities.”, commented Manoj Narender Madnani, Board Member of Jalan Kalrock Consortium.
The airline intends to operate all of its historic domestic slots in India and restart international operations. In addition of these flights, the carrier intends to start a dedicated cargo service.
As before, Jet airways hubs will remain Mumbai, Delhi and Bengaluru. Secondary hubs will be created in Tier-II and Tier-III cities.
