Jet Airways obtains certificate to resume commercial airline operations


India’s aviation regulator has granted Jet Airways the Air Operator’s Certificate, a document that allows the airline to resume commercial flight operations.

The airline intends to resume commercial operations in the July-September quarter. His additional senior leadership appointments will be revealed next, Reuters said.



The aircraft and fleet plan, network and loyalty program will be unveiled over the coming weeks. Jet was once India’s main private airline before going bankrupt and operating its last flight on April 17, 2019. The Jalan-Kalrock consortium is now the promoter.

Arun Kumar, Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), told PTI on Friday that PTI “the AOC” has been “granted” to Jet Airways.

Jet successfully operated all test flights earlier this week. The airline carried out the second and final series of two test flights on Tuesday with 31 people, including DGCA officials on board, sources said.
