‘Lenders creating hindrance in Jet Airways revival’


The Jalan-Kalrock consortium, which had won the bid to take over bankrupt Jet Airways, on Friday sought clarity from the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal on the transfer of ownership of the grounded airline, claiming that the creditors were creating hindrances to restart operations.

The consortium’s counsel argued that the “committee of creditors was initiating litigation in different fora”, making it difficult for the airline to resume flight operations.

The counsel for State Bank of India(SBI) , one of the lenders of Jet Airways, on the other hand, said the consortium had not infused any funds in the airline and had not complied with any of the conditions laid down by the National Company Law Tribunal order for the transfer of ownership.

The counsel sought time from the appellate tribunal to file an additional affidavit to bring certain documents on record. The tribunal granted three days to do so and listed the matter for arguments on August 7. The counsel for the CoC also argued that revival plan for the airline was not viable. Jet Airways in 2022 acquired an air operator’s certificate from the DGCA to resume flight operations. The certificate, which was valid for one year, expired last month.
