Jet Airways will begin operations in September and will face fierce competition from Rakesh Jhunjhunwala‘s Akasa Air.
Jet Airways (India) Ltd is a Delhi-based multinational airline with a training and development facility in Mumbai. In February 2016, it was one of India’s major airlines, with a 21.2 percent passenger market share. From its former main hub at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport in Mumbai, it operated over 300 flights daily to 74 destinations worldwide, with secondary hubs at Chennai International Airport in Chennai, Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi, Kempegowda International Airport in Bengaluru, Cochin International Airport in Kochi, and Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport in Kolkata. According to rumors, the airline would resume operations in mid-August or September 2022, making it the first Indian airline to be resurrected after a hiatus.
According to the airline’s press release, the employment process has begun. Kempegowda International Airport in Bangalore, Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi, and Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport in Mumbai would be the new operational hubs following the resurrection in August 2022.
Jet Airways has launched a new live career webpage to help the airline attract new workers. Jet Airways CEO Sanjiv Kapoor was alerted through Twitter. “@JetAirways now has a live careers page where openings are published and applications can be submitted immediately,” he tweeted, adding that vacancies are being added to the platform as we speak. He also reminded everyone that the previous recruiting procedure for pilots, engineering employees, and other positions was done using social media channels like Twitter and LinkedIn.
When questioned about pilot jobs, Kapoor responded quickly that they are being posted separately and would be available in July. Jet Airways has requested entries for pilots who wished to work with the airline via its official Twitter feed. Jet Airways ceased operations on April 29th, 2019, owing to financial difficulties.
A consortium of lenders led by India’s major public-owned bank, State Bank of India, filed an insolvency case in June 2019 to collect over 8,000 crores in debt from the firm.
The airline was previously owned by Naresh Goyal and is currently held by Murari Lal Jalan of Indian origin and KalRock Capital Management Limited of the United Kingdom, who have agreed to invest up to $120,000 in the firm. The Director General of Civil Aviation, DGCA, has given the air operators certificate AOC to resume commercial flights. Jet Airways will begin operations in September, initially just operating domestic routes. The airline will struggle to build a name for itself in the aviation business, which is becoming increasingly congested as new and old entrants, such as the Tata Group, increase their presence.
