Restarting an airline, according to the statement, is a complicated process that "must be done properly" in conjunction with regulatory authorities. "The process is well under way." The timing represents the average duration of an AOC process, although we fully intend to complete the proving flight and receive the AOC far ahead of the scheduled dates."

Furthermore, according to the statement, the timeframe extension has "nothing to do with where aircraft are registered and deregistered, or the cost of leasing."

“Further, there is no regulatory requirement of taking an aircraft outside India for the purposes of re-registration. We are working with multiple aircraft lessors as well as aircraft manufacturers to source aircraft that will be inducted into the Jet Airways fleet over the next three to five years."
