New Delhi: The Ministry of Home Affairs has given security clearance to Jet Airways. This airline is planning to start commercial flight operations once again in the next few months. Jalan Kalrock Consortium is currently the promoter of Jet Airways. Earlier this airline was owned by Naresh Goyal where it flew for the last time in April 2019. Financial crunch forced the airlines to turn off its engine of operations.
The airline had last Thursday conducted its test flight from Hyderabad airport to further its process of obtaining the Air Operator Certificate. The test flight was conducted to prove to aviation regulator DGCA that the aircraft and its components were operating normally. Now the airline will have to operate another flight, after which the DGCA will provide the Air Operator Certificate.
It is precise that Doctorate of Civil Aviation (DGCA) officers, airline officers and cabin crew members as passengers is similar to commercial flying. In a letter sent by the Civil Aviation Ministry to the airline on May 6, it was informed about the security clearance given by the Union Home Ministry.
Jet Airways had a debt of Rs 11000 crore, due to which the company had a financial crisis. The situation had become such that even the salary was not being given to the employees. After that the flights of Jet Airways were closed in the year 2019.
