Jet Airways Crisis: 260 Pilots, Grounded Planes Lessors Approach SpiceJet


Financially troubled Jet Airways seems to be headed towards more turbulence as around 260 of its pilots have applied to join SpiceJet, even as investors like public sector banks struggle to stitch a rescue plan for the airline.

The development took place on Wednesday when pilots of the beleaguered airline applied for jobs in SpiceJet’s open interview sessions held here on Wednesday.

“Out of the 260 pilots, 150 are senior commanders. The commonality of Boeing jets between the two airlines is the main draw for pilots to apply in SpiceJet,” a source told IANS in Mumbai.

Jet currently has 1,900 pilots on its rolls. They are now being looked by all other domestic airlines, especially those who are looking at international expansion. Read Morre
