Earlier last week, Jet Airways’ Resolution Professional Ashish Chhawchharia told ET Now that the company has to do find a resolution or a settlement for the creditors which were there before the company shut down and then new capital needs to be introduced for the revival of the company.

“The business plan that has been submitted by the Jalan Kalrock consortium have provided for both these aspects and the lenders in their commercial wisdom have now approved the plan,” he had said.

“After a few more formalities, we should be able to get these airlines back in the skies soon,” he added.
