India’s Jet Airways has ‘two months’ to cut costs

India’s Jet Airways has ‘two months’ to cut costs

India’s Jet Airways is suffering major turbulence and may cease flying in 60 days without major cost cuts, local media reported Friday, sending shares in the carrier tumbling.

The dire warning was made in talks between managers and employees in recent days, the Economic Times reported, quoting an unnamed senior executive.

The claims, as well as another report in the Mint daily that the airline was in talks with investors to raise cash, sent Jet Airlines’ shares down seven percent.

Mint quoted an unidentified source who said the talks included founding chairman Naresh Goyal potentially selling some of his 51 percent stake in India’s number-two carrier by market share.

Etihad Airlines of the United Arab Emirates currently owns a 24 percent stake in the firm. A previous Etihad offer to hike its stake was spurned by Goyal, Mint reported.

Jet Airlines declined to comment on the reports when contacted by AFP. There has been a six-fold increase in passenger numbers in India over the past decade as customers take advantage of better connectivity and cheaper fares thanks to a host of low-cost airlines.

But intense competition and rising jet fuel prices — exacerbated by a weaker rupee — has eroded the profitability of airlines including Jet Airways and Vistara, a joint venture between Singapore Airlines and Tata Sons.
