Cash-starved Jet Airways grounded 15 more aircrafts. The airline has over USD 1 billion in debt. Asked about the active fleet of the beleaguered airline, the Civil Aviation Secretary P S Kharola said that “yesterday, it was 28”. On the airline informing stock exchanges on Tuesday evening that 15 more aircraft have been grounded, Kharola said the current fleet “would be less than about 15”. Regarding funding issues of the airline, Kharola - who was speaking on the sidelines of an event - said, “The issue is between bankers and Jet management. So they are discussing with each other.”
