Jet Airways has announced that it is going to start hiring experienced trainers, captains and co-pilots.
The Airline tweeted, “Jet Airways is looking to onboard experienced trainers, captains and co-pilots (Type Rated 737NG) for immediate joining. Perks and benefits best in class. People who are interested in the jobs can send their resume to Careers@JetAirways.com.”
The selected candidates will have to join work immediately.
The hiring announcement is attracting a lot of attention because the Jet Airways was grounded on 17 April, 2019 after it had run out of money, and had gone on to declare bankruptcy the same year. In June 2021, the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) approved the insolvency resolution plan given by Jalan-Kalrock consortium, composed of Kalrock Capital Management from Britain, and UAE’s entrepreneur Murari Lal Jalan.
Jal-Kalrock Capital Consortium had given assurance that the Airline’s operations will restart from 2022, with six narrow body planes, after the company managed to get the air operator permit. The Consortium aims to pay Rs 1, 183 crore to its creditors over a span of five years, with the money it makes from sale of assets. It has already outlined a plan to invest Rs 600 crore in the first two years so that it can repay the creditors.
Founded by NRI Naresh Goyal in 1992, Jet Airways was one of the biggest airlines in India with a 21 per cent passenger market share in the country until February 2016.
