Jet Airways resumed operations

Jet Airways today finally resumed operations after a crippling five-day strike by pilots that ended on Saturday. Nearly 100 of the 400 agitating pilots of Jet Airways reported for duty in Mumbai today as the airlines said that its flight operations will return to normalcy soon.

“We are operating 172 domestic and 72 international flights. So far, 98 pilots have already reported fit. The operation is expected to return to normal soon,” a Jet Airways spokesperson said.

Nearly 100 of the 400 agitating pilots of Jet Airways reported for duty in Mumbai on Sunday as the airlines said that its flight operations will return to normalcy soon.

“We are operating 172 domestic and 72 international flights. So far, 98 pilots have already reported fit. The operation is expected to return to normal soon,” a Jet Airways spokesperson said.

A trickle of passengers started arriving at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai early on Sunday to catch flights that were announced by the private carrier.

The airline will initially schedule its operations on a 12-hour basis and will extend it subsequently after more flights are added into operations, he said.

The pilots’ union National Aviators Guild (NAG) ended its five-day long agitation after a nine-hour-long meeting with the management in Mumbai last night.

The two sides agreed that the four sacked pilots will be reinstated and a consultative group be made to resolve all issues.
