The proceedings are still ongoing in India, where the airline is fighting against an impending bankruptcy. Employees have been taking to the streets for weeks because they fear unemployment.

At the beginning of April, an aircraft was arrested and confiscated at Schiphol Airport at the behest of the freight company WFS because the airline had outstanding payments that it did not meet. Jet Airways is said to have a total of $ 1.2 billion in debt.
