Will create transparent SOP to allocate Jet Airways' foreign flying rights to airlines: Kharola

New Delhi: With each of the Indian airlines vying for maximum share of the Jet Airways' foreign flying rights, Civil Aviation Secretary P S Kharola said Friday the ministry will create a transparent standard operating procedure (SOP) to allocate these rights on a temporary basis.
"We had asked airlines to confirm their requirement of (domestic) slots and (international) traffic rights...Their requests have been officially logged in. Our people will do an analysis now and we will evolve a transparent SOP based on which the rights will be given," Kharola said.
He was speaking to reporters after holding a meeting -- which was focused on temporary allocation of foreign flying rights of Jet Airways -- Friday morning with senior executives of the Indian airlines.
The airfares have risen dramatically on many international routes since Jet Airways suspended its operations on April 17.
The central government, therefore, is planning to allocate Jet Airways' international flying rights to other airlines such as IndiGo, Air India, SpiceJet, GoAir and Vistara.
