Jet Airways’ employees hold protest outside Civil Aviation Ministry, demand revival of airline

Employees of cash-strapped Jet Airways protested outside the Civil Aviation Ministry here on Tuesday, demanding revival of the airline and payment of their pending salaries.

The protests come amid the State Bank of India-led consortium of lenders struggling to find a buyer for the airline which ceased operations around mid-last month due to acute liquidity crisis.

Around 200 employees of Jet Airways demonstrated with banners reading “Hear our cry, let 9W fly”, “We fly you around, don’t let us be on ground”, “We have dependents to feed, please don’t let 9W bleed” and “A family helps each other for cleaning house”.
