Jet Airways CEO Sanjiv Kapoor stated the airline is planning to take to skies again by the third quarter of CY2022. The successful bidder for bankrupt Jet Airways, the Kalrock-Jalan group, is also considering two-class facilities for passengers.
Following a more than three-year hiatus, services will be resumed. Jet Airways ceased operations in April 2019 due to financial difficulties. The Airline will offer two-class amenities for passengers, according to Kapoor, as part of the airline’s strategy to return with a mix of no-frills and premium services.
A business class will be available, with free meals and other premium services available to fliers. According to Kapoor, there will also be a low-cost economy class. Passengers in economy class will have to pay for on-board meals, he said. Domestic travellers, according to Kapoor, prioritise fares.
According to Kapoor, the Air Operator Permit (AOP) will be approved before the end of the month. A proving flight is required to ensure the aircraft’s safety. Kapoor, who formerly held key positions at Vistara and Spicejet, was chosen as the new CEO of Jalan Kalrock Consortium in March.
The “Successful Resolution Applicant” and new proposed promoters of Jet Airways are the Jalan Kalrock Consortium. The Jalan-Kalrock Consortium’s resolution plan was authorised by the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) in June 2021.
