As the full service carrier also the second largest owner of wide body aircrafts after Air India plans to get to the skies within 6 months, here are some of the interesting facts about the resumption plan.
Jet Airways plans to reclaim its slots at its former hubs like Mumbai, Delhi, and Bangalore. Once as the business expands the airline plans to diversify into more regional routes. This means Jet could start flying to Tier 2 and 3 cities.
In view of the current aviation scenario the airline is unlikely to focus on wide body operations, instead will be focusing on a streamlined fleet of 25 planes when it relaunches. Out of the 25, 18-20 will be narrowbodies while 5-7 will be widebodies. This does not include Jet’s formar fleet of owned aircraft but rather includes newly leased planes. While the airline hasn’t said exactly which planes it will fly, the Boeing 737 family and 777s look like ly to join the Jet fleet.
Jet Airways also want to revive one of its critical aspect: the brand. Jet will remain a premium, full-service airline, despite the changing market.
