Jet Airways Ready to Fly Again As Its 2nd Aviation Innings
After a break of almost two and a half years, Jet Airways is prepared to begin its second inning in India. There will be the latest planes with new staff.
Having stated that, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation has already given the airline the operational authorization (DGCA).
Additionally, it trained the first group of cabin personnel last week at the Gurugram center.
New Management of Jet Airways
Jet Airways will initially start operating on internal routes under the leadership of CEO Sanjiv Kapoor until the airline has the minimum of 20 aircraft needed to travel internationally.
Kapoor has extensive experience in the aviation sector, having held executive positions at Vistara and SpiceJet among other airlines.
Interestingly enough, Jet will only lease brand-new airplanes from foreign lessors and will not use even a single plane from its older fleet.
Meet our first batch of wonderful and experienced cabin crew that started service training today. Over half are former Jet crew, and all are getting ready to bring the ‘joy of flying’ back to the skies even better than before!— Jet Airways (@jetairways) August 22, 2022
Jet Airways Starts Hiring
The airline has unveiled a new job website to hire staff, including pilots for Airbus A320, Boeing 737NG, and Boeing 737 MAX aircraft.
The planes that the airline would deploy during its upcoming run in India are clearly indicated by this pilot recruitment effort.
According to reports, Jet Airways has informed the Ministry of Civil Aviation that by the end of 2024, it plans to add 20 more aircraft.
Furthermore, VK Singh, the Minister of State for Civil Aviation, stated in the Parliament that it wants to have 150 aircraft in its fleet by 2030.
The Memorable ‘Imli Candy’
A few days ago, Jet teased its passengers on social media by mentioning the return of “Imli Candy.”
Because it was such a memorable event for Jet passengers, they couldn’t help but share their favorite Imli Candy memory.
For those who are unaware, Imli Candy was a delectable treat that the airline offered on its flights and was adored by all, especially kids.
It sure is!— Jet Airways (@jetairways) August 25, 2022

One Of India’s Most Prolific Airlines
Prior to ceasing operations in April 2019, Jet Airways was one of India’s most successful airlines.
It was the only airline, save Air India, that operated flights to the U. S. using wide-bodied Boeing aircraft, and Naresh Goyal served as its chairman.
Jet Airways had the most seats available for foreign flights of any airline operating out of India until it ceased operations.
