Shares of Jet Airways on Thursday slipped nearly two per cent in morning trade on the Bombay Stock Exchange as pilots kept away from work for the third consecutive day leading to disruption of services.

Shares of Jet Airways fell as much as 1.68 per cent over previous close to Rs 258.15 on the BSE.

On Wednesday, the airline cancelled over 200 flights as more than 400 cockpit crew failed to turn up for work to protest the sacking of two pilots by the airlines management.

On the National Stock Exchange also Jet Airways plunged 1.56 per cent to Rs 258.75.

On Wednesday, Jet Airways Chief Naresh Goyal met Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel to discuss the impasse.

The airlines said it was willing to talk to the agitating pilots but made it clear that it would not allow the pilots union to hold operations of the airline to ransom.
