As per resolution plan banks will now own majority stake in Jet Airways and will initially fund the liquidity crunched carrier with ₹1500 crore through various debt instruments keeping its assets as collateral. This will be bringing the carrier back to normalcy and will help it to carry out its flying operation like earlier.

Jet Airways was grappling with its worst financial crises and the carrier was forced to look for bailout plans as it was unable to meet operating cost and was not even able to pay rental for planes to lessor and also defaulted in paying loans and on time salaries to employees.
