MUMBAI- Indian FSC Jet Airways Accountable Manager Captain P P Singh has resigned from the airline. The information is shared by senior Indian journalists on their Twitter accounts.
Captain PP Singh first joined Jet Airways in 1999. He, unfortunately, had to quit following the shutdown of Jet Airways. However, he returned back as an Accountable manager in 2022.
PP Singh: Ex-Jet Airways Accountable Manager Journey
He graduated from the University of Delhi in 1982 after doing his bachelor of Science. Mr. Singh joined the Indian Air Force in Jan 1984 and served 10 years for the nation.
He then joined the leading private carrier, Jet Airways, in 1999 as Operations Manager – Flight Standards and Procedures. Furthermore, he left it in 2003, then in 2012, he returned as chief pilot and then became VP of Regulatory Affairs.
Mr Singh was with Jet when it ceased in 2019. Following this, he was forced to leave and joined Nepal Airlines. Finally, with the Jet 2.0 team, he made a comeback as Accountable Manager.
However, he quit again, possibly due to the delayed restarting of Jet 2.0. We have contacted Mr. Singh and await his precious comments on this matter.
The Indian Journalist Tarun Shukla tweeted about it, and he wrote, “His tone on Jet’s future was somber telling me: Frankly, one hopes Jet flies, everyone hopes…only thing is at the moment I think I need to move to something different.”
Also, Jet Airways has less than a month to pay dues to its creditors.
Jet Airways Dues to Creditors
There is high uncertainty over India’s Jet Airways (9W) comeback as the Jalan Kalrock consortium (JKC) has less than a month to pay its creditors.
On April 17, 2019, Jet Airways’ employees witnessed an emotional moment. As the airline operated its last flight from Amritsar to Mumbai. All operations were suspended due to severe financial turbulence.
However, even after four years, there is still no clarity on when the airline will return to the skies. According to sources, the Jalan-Kalrock consortium, which won the bid to take over the airline, has not paid creditors despite the approaching 180-day deadline on May 13, less than a month away.
The consortium must pay Rs 270 crores to creditors and Rs 225 crores to PF. Furthermore, a gratuity of employees, as ordered by the Supreme Court, before transferring airline ownership.
Jet Airways might see more hurdles as they get closer to restarting their operations. The airline core committee members have strong Business acumen in Aviation and Travel Industries. With this, we can expect Jet to return to the skies and stand up to its reputation.
Despite facing many obstacles, Jet Airways have covered a lot of ground and are a few steps away from getting started. In addition, Jet Airways will be the first defunct airline to restart its operation in India.
