Jet Airways board will meet tomorrow morning on the current status of engagement with the lenders and other related matters shall be placed before the board where the management will seek guidance from the board on the next steps forward.

The airline on Sunday said it has extended the cancellation of its west-bound flights - to and from Amsterdam, London and Paris - until April 16.

With delay in fund infusion, Jet's operations have been shrinking.

At present, Jet is operating only 7 aircraft for domestic operations due to the grounding of over 80 per cent of its fleet by lessors owing to non-payment of dues, IANS report added.

The airline had more than 120 aircraft operating a year ago, but competition from low-priced carriers such as IndiGo and SpiceJet Ltd, together with high oil prices, hefty fuel taxes and a weak rupee have lately piled on pressure.
