Jet Airways’ Revival Plan Accepted, Routes Yet To Be Decided: Sources


The resolution plan submitted by a consortium of London-based Kalrock Capital and UAE-based businessmen Murari Lal Jalan was approved by the National Companies Law Tribunal (NCLT) on Tuesday, sources told NDTV.

As part of the revival plan NCLT has given 90 days to Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) and Aviation Ministry to allot slots to the debt-laden Jet Airways. However, Jet Airways being given its important historic domestic and international routes remains unresolved, sources added.

The Kalrock-Jalan consortium had proposed to repay banks, financial institutions and employees Rs 1,200 crore over next five years and plans to establish Jet Airways as a full service airline with 30 aircraft.

In April 2019, Jet Airways – which operated a fleet of more than 120 planes serving dozens of domestic destinations and international hubs such as Singapore, London and Dubai – was forced to ground all flights, crippled by mounting losses as it attempted to compete with low-cost rivals.
