DGCA may bar Jet Airways from accepting advance bookings beyond a period

Mumbai: Aviation regulator DGCA may bar beleaguered carrier Jet Airways from taking advance bookings beyond a particular period amid a drastically reduced capacity and massive flight cancellations, an official said Thursday.

As per the official, Jet Airways has been flying only 61 of the 116 planes it has in the fleet, forcing it to cancel as much as 45 per cent of its total flights per day.

Jet Airways operates over 600 flights within Indian and overseas. “We may ask Jet Airways not to accept forward bookings beyond a particular period,” a senior DGCA official told PTI Thursday.
