Staff marches, Naresh Goyal bids for Jet
Jet Airways founder Naresh Goyal put in bid for buying stake in the ailing airline, sources said. Goyal quit as chairman of the carrier last month. It couldn’t be immediately ascertained whether he has partnered with any entity or airline for the bid. Friday was the last date for initial bids set by SBI Capital Markets
The crisis in Jet Airways deepened on Friday as the airline could operate only 11 aircraft, leaving passengers stranded at various domestic and international airports and prompting the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) to hold an urgent meeting.
International flights have been cancelled till Monday, a spokesperson told DNA. The airline is working to minimise guest inconvenience using its 24×7 Contact Centre, Guest Relations and Social Media response teams.
