Stranded Jet Airways passengers wait for refunds


More than a day after India’s first private airline Jet Airways Ltd announced that it would temporarily cease operations amid a fund crunch, passengers across the globe have been left in the lurch. Selena Lester, 53, a resident of Bushey in England flew to India in the first week of April for a holiday.

Lester and her family of three were scheduled to return to London on 21 April but are currently stranded in Goa. “Our Jet Airways flight has been cancelled and we’ve been promised a refund but have no idea when it would get credited. I’ve been trawling the internet since Thursday but there are hardly any flights,” said Lester on Friday.

The family spent €216 ( 16,850, as on 19 April) for a ticket when they first made the booking in May 2018. Lester will now have to shell out nearly 15 times as she said the air fares are as high as €3,000. Read More
