Many airlines seem to benefit from the Jet Airways' absence.
Vistara is inducting six planes, including four Boeing 737s, to fuel its expansion plan. These Boeing 737s were earlier flown by Jet Airways and will have two class configurations (12 business and 156 economy seats).
Vistara will use the planes on domestic routes and will open three new destinations, it is learnt.
Vistara operates an Airbus A320 fleet in a three-class configuration, which includes a premium economy cabin. It has opted to go for a mixed fleet following the collapse of Jet Airways. Jet’s grounding has opened up growth opportunities for rival airlines, which have access to slots, planes, pilots and trained manpower from it.
Vistara said it had hired around 500 ex-employees of Jet Airways including pilots, the cabin crew, engineers and other staff. Spicejet has inducted over 15 Boeing 737s flown by Jet Airways. It plans to induct 50 planes in 2019, the airline's chairman Ajay Singh wrote in a staff email on Friday. “In the last three weeks alone we have added 21 planes to our fleet - adding a pane every day. Nowhere in the world has an airline expanded at this pace, increased capacity and added new stations and flights as Spicejet has done in last one month," Singh said. The airline also aims to operate on medium and long haul routes and ground work for same is underway, he added.
