Jet Airways to induct a plane every month

Mumbai:  Jet Airways, India's second-biggest carrier by market share, will over the next 3-4 years induct one plane into its fleet every month, as it aims to bolster its network post a stake sale to Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways.
The airline will take the delivery of 12 Boeing 737 narrow-bodied planes this year, KG Vishwanath, its vice-president for commercial strategy and investor relations, told analysts in a conference call on Monday. The total order is for 46 planes, he added.
Vishwanath also said Jet will conduct a 10-year study of routes and network before it takes a decision to order new planes. He didn't elaborate.
