"(We are) very confident that we can solve the problems at the now defunct carrier," Puri said on the sidelines of an event here.
Running out of fuel, Jet Airways had on April 17 suspended its operations. Nearly 90 of its aircraft, out of 119, have already been de-registered with the lessors taking their possession.
The employees of Jet Airways are hoping the government will help revive the carrier and has been meeting top functionaries, including Puri, ever since the NDA government returned to power last month.
Puri, a former diplomat, is the new Aviation Minister. In addition to aviation, he holds the portfolios of urban development as well as trade and commerce.
