SP's Airbuz - - News Briefs -

On Au­gust 4, this year, Jet Air­ways said it will con­tinue to ex­pand its net­work and im­prove cus­tomer ex­pe­ri­ence even as its pi­lots’ union agreed to work with the com­pany on cost sav­ings. How­ever, it is un­der­stood that pi­lots have not agreed to pay cuts pro­posed by the air­line, which is bat­tling fi­nan­cial woes amid ris­ing fuel costs and low fares. “We are try­ing to as­sist our com­pany in fac­ing th­ese chal­lenges by meet­ing with the man­age­ment and be­ing a part of the so­lu­tion in achiev­ing cost ef­fi­cien­cies and en­hanc­ing our ser­vice stan­dards,” the Na­tional Avi­a­tors Guild said in a com­mu­ni­ca­tion to its mem­bers. The air­line man­age­ment on its part, painted a grim pic­ture of its fi­nances while ask­ing pi­lots and en­gi­neers to ac­cept pay cut; but de­nied there was any threat of clo­sure fol­low­ing me­dia re­ports which said the air­line can­not sur­vive for more than two months. The air­line has reached out to its fre­quent fly­ers as­sur­ing them of con­ti­nu­ity of op­er­a­tions.
