Jet Airways can start operating domestic flights in the first quarter of next year (2022). Jalan Kalrock Consortium has shared information in this regard through a press release. The airline will soon resume domestic flights with its first flight from New Delhi to Mumbai, while its international flights will be operational by the second half of 2022.
The press release said, “The process of restarting the grounded carrier is on track with the existing Air Operator Certificate, which is already in the process of revalidation. The consortium is working closely with the concerned authorities and airport coordinators on airport infrastructure and night parking for slot allocation.
Plan to start more than 50 flights in 3 years
Murari Lal Jalan, a key member of the London-based Jalan CalRock Consortium and non-executive chairman of Jet Airways, said, “Jet Airways 2.0 aims to resume domestic operations by the first quarter of 2022. Whereas the third quarter / fourth quarter is to operate international flights in a short time till 2022. “Our plan is to have over 50 flights in 3 years and over 100 aircraft in 5 years, which fits perfectly with the short-term and long-term business plan of the consortium,” he said.
Jalan said, “This is the first time in the history of aviation that an airline that has been suspended for more than two years is being revived and we look forward to being a part of this historic journey.” The consortium said that the first flight of Jet Airways will be on the Delhi-Mumbai route and the airline’s headquarters will now be in Delhi instead of Mumbai.
Operations had to be closed due to increasing losses
Let us tell you that due to the increasing losses, Jet Airways had to stop operating all its flights in April 2019. The National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) had in June this year approved the resolution plan of the Jalan Kalrock consortium for Jet Airways. The proceedings for the insolvency resolution of the company had started two years ago.
