Jet engineers say aircraft safe to fly

New Delhi/Mumbai: Jet Airways flight maintenance engineers have written to the aviation regulator DGCA stating that the company's aircraft are fit and safe to fly.According to the Jet Aircraft Maintaince Enginners Welfare Association, the company has a 99.50 per cent technical dispatch reliability which is the highest in the industry. The corrigendum from the association comes after it had written to the DGCA on the issue of overdue salaries. 

The development also comes after the Union Civil Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu on Tuesday directed senior officials to hold an emergency meeting on the grounding of flights by Jet Airways.The Civil Aviation Minister tweeted: "Directed Secretary, MoCA, to hold an emergency meeting on grounding of flights by Jet Airways, advance bookings, cancellation, refunds and safety issues, if any. 

"Asked him to get a report on Jet compliance issues immediately from DGCA (Directorate General of Civil Aviation)." The development comes a day after passengers were left stranded at Abu Dhabi as Jet Airways cancelled flights. The cash-strapped carrier, which has been forced to ground over 40 aircraft of its fleet due to non-payment of amounts outstanding to lessors, is regularly grounding aircraft as it is unable to pay the lessors.
