Jet Airways passenger tariff has declined by 5% for FY13. High fuel cost and rupee depreciation have impacted operating result of the company. Meanwhile, the company has either sold or leased out excess capacity to other airlines.
In separate development, Jet Airways’ promoter Naresh Goyal is planning to divest 5% stake in the company for Rs 253 crore to meet the SEBI’s norms of 25% public float. The promoter will sell the same through offer for sale (OFS) route which is likely to be done before May 30.
