Jet Airways 2.0 could take to the skies early next year, starting with domestic flights — Delhi-Mumbai to be inaugural flight — and then flying to foreign shores. The airline had ceased operations in April 2019 and has become the first Indian carrier to be revived under the bankruptcy laws. In its new avatar, Jet will be based in Delhi NCR and not Mumbai like Jet Airways 1.0.
“We received 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,” Murari Lal Jalan, lead member of the Jalan Kalrock Consortium and the proposed non-executive chairman of Jet Airways said.
