In order to lease 6-8 aircraft before the end of this year, the soon-to-be-relaunched airline Jet Airways is in talks with aircraft manufacturers and lessors. For popular narrowbody aircraft like the Airbus A320 and Boeing 737, there is typically a huge waiting list, but Jet is interested in the aircraft that were scheduled to be delivered to Russian carriers before to the Ukraine War.
“Aircraft availability is always an issue but now due to the Russia-Ukraine war, aircraft which were to be delivered to Russia are also available in the market along with those leased planes which were flying in Russia,” a source with knowledge of the situation told the Press Trust of India.
Prior to its anticipated launch, the airline is active and in "advanced discussion" with lessors and the original equipment manufacturer (OEMs). Additionally, it is working with airport managers to reserve spots. Prior to 2019, Jet was a significant national airline that had access to prime slots at all of the country's major airports.
But in a more competitive aviation industry since then, other airlines have snatched up the majority of those slots. In order to obtain "good" timing for optimum profitability, Jet is currently attempting to undertake conversations with airports.
