Jet Airways to resume domestic flight operations in early 2022
After being grounded for over two-and-a-half years, Jet Airways is set to resume domestic operations in the first quarter of calendar year (CY) 2022, according to the Jalan Kalrock consortium, the successful resolution applicant of Jet Airways. The consortium also aims to start international operations by mid-2022. Captain Sudhir Gaur has been appointed as the acting CEO of the company.
Murari Lal Jalan, lead member of the Jalan Kalrock Consortium and the proposed Non-Executive Chairman of Jet Airways said that Jet Airways 2.0 aims to restart domestic operations by Q12022, and short haul international operations by Q3/Q42022.
In a statement released on September 13, the consortium said that the process of reviving the grounded carrier is on track with the existing Air Operator Certificate (AOC) already under process for revalidation. “The consortium is working closely with the relevant authorities and airport coordinators on slot allocation, required airport infrastructure, and night parking,” it said.
The revival plan for Jet Airways is being implemented as approved by NCLT and all the creditors will be settled as per the plan in the coming months, it said. The consortium received the NCLT approval in June 2021.
Captain Sudhir Gaur, Accountable Manager, and acting CEO, visited key airports last month and held productive meetings, it said.
Sharing operational details, Captain Gaur said, “Jet Airways will now be headquartered in Delhi NCR with its senior management working from the Corporate Office at Gurugram. Jet Airways will restart its operations with its first flight from New Delhi to Mumbai by Q12022.” (Source Business Line)
