Jet Airways cancels international flights till April 15


Apr 13, 2019 (2 months ago) |
New Delhi , Apr 12 : Jet Airways has cancelled its international operations from April 12 to 15, said a spokesperson of the private airline in a statement on Friday.
"The airline is working to minimise guest inconvenience using its round the clock contact centre, guest relations and the social media response teams, to handle schedule adjustments in line with defined regulatory guidelines, including offering re-accommodation choices or extending applicable refunds as the situation warrants," the spokesperson added.

The decision comes as an extension of Thursday's announcement by the airline to suspending its international flights after its 10 more aircraft were grounded.

Union Government on Thursday said that the Jet Airways' eligibility to fly on international routes needs to be examined.

Debt-laden Jet Airways is currently operating only 14 aircraft in its fleet and may soon lose the right to fly on international routes, official sources had said on Thursday.

The airlines permitted to fly on international routes must have 20 aircraft in service.

Burdened with high operating costs and a huge debt, Jet Airways has been facing the biggest crisis in its history, according to reports.

Since January, it has not been able to pay salaries to pilots and maintenance engineers.

Many lessors have taken possession of planes after the airline failed to pay rents.

Lenders, led by State Bank of India, took control of Jet Airways in March after its founder and chairman Naresh Goyal gave up control to resolve the crisis.
