Jet Airways Seeks Permission to Decrease Flights to Northeast

Jet Airways suffered a loss of Rs 298 crore last year and this has prompted the airline to seek government permission to cut back the amount of flights they operate to the northeastern region of the country.  According to sources, the airline wants to decrease the number of flights by almost half, from their current 38 daily flights to various northeastern cities.  However, as of yet, they have not heard from the government on the matter.


The government’s Route Dispersal Guidelines (RDG) require airlines to service the more remote northeastern portions and other remote sections of the country as a social obligation.  Recently there has been a panel headed by Air India’s CMD Rohit Nandan that made suggestions for the revision of the RDG, requiring each airline to devote a minimum percentage of their capacity or a percentage of their available seat per kilometer to small towns and cities.  Jet is arguing that they northeastern region is over-capacity at the present time and their reduction in flights will not affect connectivity.
