Meanwhile, cargo handler Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has seized a Jet Airways Boeing 777 at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport because of unpaid fees. Passengers travelling on Jet flight 9W321 from Amsterdam to Mumbai were in for a shock when their flight was cancelled just as boarding was about to begin.
On Wednesday, the Indian Oil Corporation reportedly cut oil supply to Jet Airways briefly over non-payment of dues for the second time in a week.
Last week, the International Olympic Committee had stopped fuel supply to Jet Airways for some time before restarting the same after receiving assurances over payment of dues.
Nonetheless, industry insiders said that the lenders of the airline might have made a part-payment towards the dues. Further, the lenders stepped in to make some payment in this regard, the sources said.
The airline's operations were not effected during the day, as other retailers continued to supply fuel to its aircraft.
Apart from employees, aircraft lessors are also upset with the current financial situation with some of them requesting the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) to de-register their aircraft leased to the company.Читайте также: Trump says no plan to revive family separations, blames Obama for uproar
After the lessor puts forth irrevocable deregistration and export request authorisations, or IDERA, the DGCA checks if the aircraft has any pending dues and if none are found, the de-registration is allowed, PTI said.
According to the last update, only 26 aircraft out of 119 were operational.
During the last a few weeks, Jet Airways has been grounding its aircraft in tranches due to non-payment of dues to its lessors.
Due to cash crunch, the airline has been paying only part salaries to its over 16,000 employees which forced a section of its pilots on Tuesday sending a legal notice to the management which is now being headed by the lenders led by State Bank of India.
The Mumbai-based airline has also defaulted on several loan payments.
Canadian airline Air Canada also remains in talks with lenders for a potential bid, but has sought more time from banks for submission of EOI, which is the reason why the SBI-led consortium made a decision to extend the bidding deadline to April 12, sources told CNBC-TV18.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
