The aviation authority, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation, has given Jet Airways permission to resume commercial flights (DGCA). After completing two proving flights, the airline was issued an air operator certificate (AOC).
The aircraft must complete five landings (five flights) in order to complete its proving flights. On May 15 and 17, the airline successfully executed five proving flights with DGCA officials on board.
Jet Airways ceased operations in 2019 after its promoters failed to supply money, and the airline’s insolvency procedure began in June of that year.
Naresh Goyal owned the airline in its previous incarnation, and the last flight occurred on April 17, 2019. Jet Airways is now promoted by the Jalan-Kalrock Consortium.
The airline’s Committee of Creditors (CoC) adopted the resolution plan proposed by a consortium led by UK-based Kalrock Capital and UAE-based entrepreneur Murari Lal Jalan in October 2020.
The airline intends to resume commercial flights in the summer of this year, between July and September.
