Jet Airways to start flight operations by Q1 2022, international flights in 2nd half
New Delhi : The Jet Airways is all set to resume its flight operations in the first quarter of 2022 between Mumbai and Delhi; the international flights are likely to be resumed in the second half of the year.
The company issued a statement saying that the process of revival of the flights is on track with the existing Air Operator Certificate (AOC).
"Jet Airways 2.0 aims at restarting domestic operations by Q1-2022, and short haul international operations by Q3/Q4 2022. Our plan is to have 50+ aircraft in 3 years and 100+ in 5 years which also fits perfectly well with the short-term and long-term business plan of the Consortium," said UAE businessman Murari Lal Jalan, lead member of the London-based Jalan Kalrock Consortium and the proposed Non-Executive Chairman of Jet Airways.
"It is the first time in the history of Aviation that an airline grounded for more than 2 years is being revived and we are looking forward to being a part of this historic journey," Mr Jalan said.
Amid operating losses, the company was forced to shut its operations in April 2019.
The Jet Airways' revival plan was approved by the National Companies Law Tribunal (NCLT) in June. All the creditors, said the company, will be settled as per the plan in the coming months.
