Jet Airways seeks Aviation Min nod to buy 6 Kingfisher Airlines slots

With the government withdrawing Kingfisher Airlines' international flying rights and domestic slots, the Jet Airways has approached the Aviation Ministry to acquire six of the vacant slots, according to sources.
"We have applied to the government to acquire six slots from Mumbai. Of these, we are looking at four domestic and two international routes," Jet Airways sources said.
Out of the six slots from Mumbai, Jet has sought three morning slots and remaining three evening ones, they said adding, "the destinations are being worked out."
Last week, the government had withdrawn all domestic and international flying slots of Kingfisher Airlines, which remains grounded since October 1 last, with immediate effect and decided to allot them to other domestic airlines.
