India's Jet Airways halts all flights to and from Singapore

With its operational fleet g o i n g below 20, the ministry of civil aviation said it will review whether Jet Airways should be allowed to fly on worldwide routes in line with the 5/20 rule and that it is awaiting a report from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA). "It is working to minimise guest inconvenience using its 24x7 Contact Centre, Guest Relations & Social Media response teams, to handle schedule adjustments".

When contacted, Jet Airways said that the airline was now focusing on accommodating its passengers on other flights and ensuring their inconvenience was reduced.

From a high of about 120 aircraft, Jet Airways, which has struggled with declining profits in the past few years, is down to fewer than 30 planes.

Lenders, led by State Bank of India (SBI), want a new investor to acquire a stake of up to 75 percent in the airline.

At its peak, Jet Airways was operating nine services a day to and from Singapore; three each from New Delhi and Mumbai, two from Bangalore and one from Pune.

And due to these reasons, the company is offering leave without pay to its employees and employees have received requests for extended time off due to changes in operational requirement including leave without pay for some pilots says a communique from Jet to its Boeing 737 pilots titled "invite request for leave without pay".

Another man, travelling with his wife and five-month-old daughter said the airline told him there is nothing they can do for him.

"Still anxious about my connecting flights to the final destination. We have asked it to take into consideration issues of passengers". "Please note that your connecting flights must have been booked and ticketed before 11 April 2019 and appear within the same reservation as your Virgin Atlantic flights".

Daily Star Online has approached Jet Airways for comment.

Sources said lenders are expecting EoIs from worldwide airlines like Air Canada and Delta Airlines.

"It could be financial investor, it could be airline.including Naresh Goyal himself or Etihad".

The airline, once India's leading private carrier, has been forced in recent months to cancel hundreds of flights to dozens of destinations both in India and overseas, leading to a customer backlash and a steady slide in its market share.
