Jet Airways pilots’ body protesting non-payment of salaries defers ‘no flying’ call

The pilots' salaries are pending from mid-December.

After the meeting, Kharola said the carrier had money to operate 6-7 planes over the weekend and that the lenders would have to decide how many jets it could fly after Monday afternoon, news channel ET Now reported on Friday.

A tweet from ANI reporting the move cited a message to Jet Airways staff from the National Aviator's Guild, which had earlier advised more than 1,000 pilots who have not been paid for three months to stop flying from Monday. Therefore the "call of No Pay No Work stands deferred for the time being" to give the airline a chance of survival, it said. The debt-ridden carrier has also not paid the March salary to employees of other categories as well.

"Jet Airways has now suspended operations to the SAARC and Asean destinations, as well as to Toronto and Paris from Chennai and back", Jet Airways said in a statement. It also announced the resignation of one of its independent directors, Rajshree Pathy, from the company for other commitments.

Much now rides on the latter's decision to release the promised interim loan funding of around Rs 1,000 crore - which was a part of the revival plan for the airline drawn up by the SBI-led consortium - without delay to help the airline stay afloat.

The union asserted that it will meet on Monday with the airline management and State Bank of India (SBI) as no collective decision has been taken yet.
