[edit]History [edit]Early


Jet Airways was incorporated as an air taxi operator on 1 April 1992. It started commercial operations on 5 May 1993 with a fleet of four leased Boeing 737300 aircraft. In January 1994 a change in the law enabled Jet Airways to apply for scheduled airline status, which was granted on 4 January 1995. It began international operations from Chennai to Colombo in March 2004. The company is listed on the Bombay Stock Exchange, but 80% of its stock is controlled by Naresh Goyal (through his ownership of Jet’s parent company, Tailwinds). It has 13,177 employees (as at 31 March 2011).[5] Naresh Goyal – who already owned Jetair (Private) Limited, which provided sales and marketing for foreign airlines in India – set up Jet Airways as a full-service scheduled airline to compete against state-owned Indian Airlines. Indian Airlines had enjoyed a monopoly in the domestic market between 1953, when all major Indian air transport providers were nationalised under the Air Corporations Act (1953), and January 1994, when the Air Corporations Act was repealed, following which Jet Airways received scheduled airline status. [edit]Air

Sahara buyout

In January 2006 Jet Airways announced that it would buy Air Sahara for US$500 million in an all-cash deal, making it the biggest takeover in Indian aviation history. It would have resulted in the country's largest airline but the deal fell through in June 2006. On 12 April 2007 Jet Airways agreed to buy out Air Sahara for INR14.5 billion (US$340 million). Air Sahara was renamed JetLite, and was marketed between a low-cost carrier and a full service airline. In August 2008 Jet Airways announced its plans to completely integrate JetLite into Jet Airways.[6] [edit]Present

SM Centre, the former head office

In October 2008 Jet Airways laid off 1,900 of its employees, resulting in the largest layoff in the history of Indian aviation.[7] However the employees were later asked to return to work; Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel said that the management reviewed its decision after he analysed the decision with them.[8][9] In October 2008 Jet Airways and rival Kingfisher Airlines announced an alliance which primarily includes an agreement on code-sharing on both domestic and international flights, joint fuel management to reduce expenses, common ground handling, joint utilisation of crew and sharing of similar frequent flier programmes.[10] On 8 May 2009 Jet Airways launched its low-cost brand, Jet Konnect. The decision to launch a new brand instead of expanding the JetLite network was taken after considering the regulatory delays involved in transferring aircraft from Jet Airways to JetLite, as the two have different operator codes. The brand was launched on sectors that had 50% or less load factor with the aim of increasing it to 70% and above. Jet officials said that the brand would cease to exist once the demand for the regular Jet Airways increases. According to a PTI report, for the third quarter of 2010, Jet Airways (Jet+JetLite) had a market share of 26.9%[11] in terms of passengers carried, thus making it a market leader in India, followed by Kingfisher Airlines with 19.9% . In July 2012, Jet Ariways officially sought government approval to join Star Alliance.[12] [edit]Effects of recession The recession forced Jet Airways to discontinue the following routes: Ahmedabad– London, Amritsar–London, Bangalore–Brussels, Mumbai–Shanghai–San Francisco and Mumbai-Brussels-New York[13]. It also had to put an indefinite delay on its expansion plans. Jet Airways was forced to lease out seven of its ten Boeing 777-

300ERs to survive the financial crunch. Due to the recession all flights to North America were operated on an Airbus A330-200 replacing the Boeing 777-300ERs. It also had to sell a brand-new, yet-to-be-delivered Boeing 777-300ER in 2009 and had to defer all new aircraft deliveries by at least two years. The airline plans to restore the Mumbai-Shanghai route by the end of 2011.[14] [edit]Corporate [edit]Head

affairs and identity


Jet Airways's head office is located in the Siroya Centre in Andheri, Mumbai.[15] Jet Airways's head office was previously located in the S.M. Centre, a rented, unmarked six storey building in Andheri.[16][17] In 2008 Robyn Meredith of Forbes stated that the complex was "as shabby as (Jet Airways CEO Nares) Goyal's home is posh" and that the complex was "In need of a fresh coat of paint". The complex was 15 minutes driving time from Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport.[17] [edit]Subsidiaries [edit]JetLite JetLite was a wholly owned subsidiary of Jet Airways. It was established as Sahara Airlines on 20 September 1991 and began operations on 3 December 1993 with two Boeing 737-200 aircraft. Initially services were primarily concentrated in the northern sectors of India, keeping Delhi as its base, and then operations were extended to cover all the country. Sahara Airlines was rebranded as Air Sahara on 2 October 2000. On 12 April 2007 Jet Airways took over Air Sahara and on 16 April 2007 Air Sahara was renamed as JetLite. JetLite operated a fleet of mixed owned–leasedBoeing 737 Next Generation aircraft and Bombardier CRJ-200ER. JetLite ceased operations on 25 March 2012 after merger with Jet Konnect.[18] [edit]Jet Konnect Jet Konnect is the low-cost brand of Jet Airways. It was launched on 8 May 2009, and shares the same airline designation as Jet Airways.[19] It operates a mixed fleet of ATR 72-500s andBoeing 737-800s. The rationale for launching Jet Konnect was to close down loss-making routes and divert the planes to more profitable routes with higher passenger load factors. Jet already ran a low-cost airline named JetLite. According to Jet Airways, the decision to launch a low-cost brand instead of expanding the existing JetLite was taken to avoid the

regulatory delays associated with moving excess aircraft and assets from Jet Airways to JetLite, which have separate operating codes. Jet Konnect offers a no frills flight where meals and other refreshments have to be purchased on board. To identify if the flight is a full service or Konnect the flight numbers for Konnect are in the series 9W 20002999.[20] Jet Airways merged the JetLite brand into Jet Konnect on 25 March 2012. [18] [edit]Destinations Main article: Jet Airways destinations Jet Airways serves 52 domestic destinations and 24 international destinations, a total of 76[21] in 19 countries across Asia, Europe and North America.
