The process of reviving the grounded carrier is on track with the existing Air Operator Certificate (AOC) already under process for revalidation.

Jet Airways, which has remained grounded for almost two years now, is ready for a fresh restart with its new stakeholders. The popular full-service airline from India plans to restart its domestic operation with its first flight from New Delhi to Mumbai by March next year. Also, the international flights will be started by Q2 2022, the company announced today. The process of reviving the grounded carrier is on track with the existing Air Operator Certificate (AOC) already under process for revalidation.

"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," said UAE businessman MurariLalJalan, lead member of the London-based JalanKalrock Consortium and the proposed Non-Executive Chairman of Jet Airways.

Interestingly, this is a unique feat for Jet Airways, as no other airline has been able to recover after remaining grouded for such a long time. India's one of the biggest private full-service carriers was forced to ground its flights in April 2019, owing billions to lenders and leaving thousands without a job.The company is now talking with authorities and airport coordinators about reclaiming its flight slots, night parking, and other related infrastructure.
