Lead Member of the Consortium and Proposed Promoter and Non-Executive Chairman of Jet Airways, said in a statement, “We are excited to embark on the next phase of revival of India’s most loved airline.

He reiterated, “We are aiming to start Domestic Operations at the earliest in 2022 as a Full-Service Carrier and look forward to creating history with Jet Airways revival.”
