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.
