Jet Airways to hire over 50 expat pilots to fly its widebody Boeing 777 planes

04 Apr 2016

Jet Airways is in the process of hiring over 50 expat pilots to fly its widebody Boeing 777 planes. Six of these aircraft, currently on lease to Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways, are expected to start returning to the Indian carrier’s fleet from June.

The airline is planning to deploy these long-haul planes to destinations like Amsterdam, Paris and Toronto, when they come back from Abu Dhabi, by replacing the existing wide-body Airbus A330s which currently service these foreign cities.

The airline has leased out six of its ten B-777s to its 26 per cent equity partner Etihad. Jet Airways has as many as 97 planes comprising B-777s, B-737s, Airbus 330s and ATRs.
