Jet Airways is set to resume operations from September after receiving the airline operating permit from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA). Airline officials in the know have told Business Standard that it will restart operations with 20 aircraft and will only fly on domestic routes initially.

All these aircraft will be brand new and will be leased from foreign lessors. None of the older planes leased or owned by Jet will be used as the airline – which suspended commercial operations on April 17, 2019, due to financial distress – takes to the skies again.
