Jet Airways, facing its worst existential crisis in its over 25-year-old history, Friday extended suspension of its international operations till next Monday due to severe liquidity issues.
The Indian prime minister’s office has called for an urgent meeting to discuss issues with debt-laden carrier Jet Airways, television news channels reported, citing sources.
The Principal Secretary to Prime Minister Narendra Modi will chair the meeting, the TV channels said.
Government officials have previously expressed concern about the loss of jobs at the airline and on the prospect of higher Indian airfares if Jet Airways collapsed. ■
