Launched in 1993, Jet Airways grew to become the airline of choice for discerning travellers in India. The famous tagline “The Joy of Flying” became synonymous with Jet Airways and its unrivalled product and service.
Jet Airways eventually flew to over 65 destinations in India and across the world, including Europe, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, and North America, with hubs in Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru, and gateways in Amsterdam, Paris, London, and Abu Dhabi. It operated 124 narrow-body and wide-body aircraft on nearly 1000 domestic and international routes, before suspending operations in April 2019 due to financial headwinds.
The company underwent a corporate insolvency resolution process under the (Indian) Insolvency and Bankruptcy Laws in April 2019. After several rounds of bidding, the Jalan-Kalrock Consortium emerged as the successful resolution applicant for Jet Airways in June 2021, giving the airline a new lease of life and paving the way for its revival.
Jet Airways’ AOC (Air Operator Certificate) was revalidated on May 20, 2022, allowing the airline to recommence commercial operations.
