Jet Airways has started hiring operational services today and has asked its former cabin crew members to rejoin the airline.
Aviation regulator DGCA had granted Jet Airways a rehabilitated Air Operator Certificate (AOC) on May 20, allowing the airline to resume commercial flight operations.
“Our operational hiring has begun, with an appeal to the former Jet crew,” said Sanjiv Kapoor, the airline’s CEO, on Twitter.
“Start hiring pilots and engineers to follow in the coming days, when we reveal our aircraft choice,” he added.
The opening batch of cabin crew members in the airline will consist of former staff only.
In its old avatar, the airline was owned by Naresh Goyal and had operated its last flight on April 17, 2019 due to financial difficulties. The Jalan-Kalrock Consortium is currently the promoter of Jet Airways.
The airline plans to restart commercial flight operations in the July-September quarter.
In an ad on Twitter on Friday, the airline said: “There really is nothing like home! We invite former Jet Airways cabin crew to come back and join us in reviving India’s most stylish airline.”
“For now, we are only inviting female crew members. Male crew recruitment will begin as we scale up,” it added.
