Jet Airways has decided to increase the utilisation of Boeing 737 aircraft that are used for flights within India and to neighbouring countries as domestic traffic is growing at over 20% and competition in the full service carrier (FSC) segment is heating up.
In this regard, the airline will hire 400 pilots in the next 18 months so that it has the manpower required to sweat its assets optimally.
Jet currently has a fleet of 116 planes. Last November, it ordered 75 B-737 MAX-8 aircraft, which is Boeing's answer to Airbus' highly successful A-320 Neo. This order includes conversions of 25 next-generation 737s to 737 MAX 8s, as well as options and purchase rights for additional 50 aircraft
