As Jet Airways continues to face severe financial problems, Air India said on Friday it would not accept any passengers that have got cancelled tickets of the former airline.
Generally, when an airline cancels a flight due to some exigencies, other carriers accommodate the former’s passengers on their flights. The airline, which has got its flight cancelled, has to pay other carriers for passengers accommodated.
“With immediate effect and till further notice, Jet Airways (India) Limited and Jet Lite Limited documents (including FIM and endorsed/involuntary rerouted/rebooked/exchanged/reissue documents) are not to be accepted for travel on Air India flights,” said an order of Air India dated March 1. FIM stands for Flight Interruption Manifest.
Nearly 20 aircraft of Jet Airways have been grounded by the lessors due to non-payment.
et Airways is trying to raise funds for its operations as it has a debt of around Rs 8,200 crore currently.
Moreover, pilots of Jet Airways have been threatening action as there have been delays in salary payment.
