After SpiceJet and AI, AI Express may also take up to seven B737s of Jet
“We have received some offers to take on lease B737 aircraft which were being operated by Jet. We are in the early stage of examining these offers. There are offers for 4-7 aircraft,” AI Express CEO K Shyam Sundar said. AI chairman Ashwani Lohani had asked Express, which has B737s in its fleet, to see it can utilise Jet’s B737s.
Some of Jet Airways’ grounded aircraft will start flying by mid next week, possibly as early as Tuesday. SpiceJet will take anywhere between 30 and 40 of Jet’s Boeing 737s while Air India will take five of the wide body Boeing 777s. Almost 40 to 45 of Jet’s planes will be operational within the next 10 days, say sources.
