MUMBAI: Teetering for over four months due to cash-drought, Jet Airways, flying for over 25 years, Wednesday said its last flight will takeoff later this night, after its lenders refused to offer a Rs 400-crore lifeline.
“With immediate effect, we are compelled to cancel all our international and domestic flights. The last flight will operate today,” Jet Airways informed the exchanges.
The airline said the decision follows the lenders refusing to offer a lifeline.
“Since no emergency funding from the lenders or any other source is forthcoming, the airline will not be able to pay for fuel or other critical services to keep the operations going… and has decided to go ahead with temporary suspension of operations,” the airline said. (AGENCIES)
