Jet Airways to resume domestic operations in 2022, first flight on Delhi-Mumbai route

Media Release

New Delhi, Sep 13: Jet Airways is all set to resume domestic operations in Q1 2022, according to the Jalan Kalrock Consortium, the successful resolution applicant of Jet Airways.

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. Senior Members of the Jalan Kalrock Consortium along with Jet 2.0 Operations Team led by the newly appointed Capt Sudhir Gaur, Accountable Manager, and acting CEO visited key airports last month and held productive meetings with them.

Elaborating on details, Murari Lal Jalan, lead member of the Jalan Kalrock Consortium and the proposed non-executive chairman of Jet Airways said “We received the NCLT approval in June 2021, and since then we have been working closely with all concerned authorities to get the airline back in the skies. 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. The aircraft are being selected based on competitive long term leasing solutions. 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. The brand Jet Airways has a huge loyalty-base and we are confident that with industry stalwarts like Capt Gaur, we will be able to capitalize and create new benchmarks. We would like to assure all our loyal Jet Airways guests that your favourite airline will soon be back in the skies.”

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.

Sharing operational details, the new accountable manager and acting CEO of Jet Airways, Capt Gaur said “Jet Airways is a brand which has grown bigger and stronger over the last two decades. In its new avatar, Jet Airways will now be headquartered in Delhi NCR with its senior management working from the corporate office at Gurugram. However, Jet Airways will continue to have strong and significant presence in Mumbai where it will work from its ‘Global One’ office in Kurla. Jet Airways also has a state-of-the-art training centre located at Global One, which will be retained and used for in-house training for the Jet Airways team.”

Adding further, Capt Gaur said, “We will start with domestic operations on an all narrow-body aircraft fleet leased from major global aircraft lessors who have approached us, and with whom we continue to engage. Jet Airways has already hired 150+ full time employees on its payroll and we are looking to onboard another 1,000+ employees FY 2021-22 across categories. The hiring will be in a phased manner and will be strictly on merit, to meet the operational requirements of the airline. The team at Jet Airways is committed to ensure that Jet Airways will restart its operations with its first flight from New Delhi to Mumbai by Q1 2022.”

Murari Lal Jalan is the lead member and proposed promoter of Jet Airways.

Jalan is a visionary who expanded his business horizon by investing in multiple paper manufacturing units in India, diversifying his business into mining, trading, FMCG, renewable energy, and other financial and strategic investments across the globe. Jalan's passion for aviation started in early 2020 when he initiated discussions with the government of Uzbekistan to develop an international airport in Namangan City. His desire for aviation got the right push in May 2020 when the bidding process for Jet Airways opened for the fourth time. When major aviation companies decided to stay away from new acquisitions, Jalan saw potential in Jet Airways.

Jet Airways is a common household aviation brand in India and the oldest private airline with a history of more than 25 years. The aviation sector was deeply hit by COVID-19, but that helped the sector as it underwent substantial correction and created an opportune time to start an airline. Given the potential in Indian aviation and with aircraft and human capital available in abundance, Mr. Jalan knew there was no better time to enter the Indian aviation market. In no time, he put together a core team to lead the process and on October 17, 2020 he was announced as a successful bidder for the airline.

    Jet Airways won't fly in 2022 - running an airline is not easy. It may start a few round trips but won't be able to sustain in the long run.

    Rusty planes due to involvement of funds of D-Company. Earlier one more East West Airlines was operating funded by D-Company for dealing his nefarious activities. Latter on its Chairman was gunned down in Bandra Office by Nana (Chota Rajan) group. On same time financer of D-Company also gunned down in Nepal by Chota Rajan group. Now Dawood dwelling in rat hole..afraid of his life.
