Jet calls off ATR wet leasing deal with TruJet 

Mumbai: Jet Airways on Monday said it has cancelled its proposed deal with TruJet for wet leasing of some of its regional jets over the latter’s failure to meet with the deadline on terms of agreement. Earlier in the day, a source had said that the deal for wet leasing of up to seven ATR planes to TruJet by the Jet Airways had hit air pocket due to regulatory issues and pilots problems. “Jet Airways has called off the proposed agreement with a regional carrier (TruJet) as the terms were not met within stipulated timelines,” a Jet Airways’ spokesperson told PTI in response to a query on the deal. The two carriers had attempted to strike a deal on ATR planes earlier last year as well, but even after months of back and forth, Jet Airways failed to phase them out. The airline has been battling cash crunch following two quarterly back-to-back losses. PTI
