Jet Airways cancels nearly 60 flights due to ‘operational issues’

Cash-strapped Jet Airways on Wednesday said it has cancelled multiple flights for February 28 due to operational issues.

The flights to and from New Delhi, Guwahati, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Abu Dhabi, Doha, Bangkok, Chennai, Pune, Coimbatore, Indore, Kathmandu, Udaipur, among other key cities are cancelled, the airline said in a statement.

Jet Airways has also cancelled its Bengaluru-Thrivanthanapuram and Thiruvanthanapuram-Bengaluru connectivity between March 30 till October 26, citing the same reason.

The airline further added that another 77 flights were cancelled due to the closure of a Mumbai Airport runway until March 30 for maintenance and repair work.

The cancellations come at a time when the debt-laden carrier is trying to stay afloat. State Bank of India is set to meet Jet Airways promoter Naresh Goyal and top executives of Etihad Airways, which owns 24 percent in the Indian airline, in Mumbai today.
