Cramer Ball, CEO of Jet Airways said, “I am extremely pleased by the progress that is evident across several areas during the quarter. Thisis in keeping with our three-year turnaround plan.


The operational restructuring initiatives with route and network rationalisation are already yielding dividends on the domestic and international network. The organic network expansion, coupled with enhanced global connectivity through alliances and codeshares, has also helped increase international passenger traffic. All of which makes me confident that our move to a single brand by December, will help provide our guests with exceptional value and a significantly enhanced and consistent product offering.


In our commitment to improve our customer’s experience, the JetPrivilegeProgramme has been enhanced by the introduction of a new mileage accrual and reward structure, as well as new strategic partnership that will add value and strengthen the travel experience for our Jet Privilege members.
