Jet Airways halts all international flights
April 13, 2019 5:01 am
Passengers are stranded in India and around the world after Jet Airways suspended all international flights.
Flights from London, Paris and Amsterdam are among those grounded amid fears about the survival of India’s largest private airline.
The airline cancelled all international flights until Monday when, according to reports, it will meet its lenders again to try to secure funding.
Jet Airways is saddled with more than $1bn (£765m) of debt.
These were the latest flights to be grounded and it was not clear how many of its fleet of more than 100 planes was still in operation. Local reports suggested that it was barely a dozen.
The airline flies on 600 domestic and 380 international routes – but carriers in India must maintain a fleet of least 20 aircraft to continue to operate international services.
