New Delhi : Jet Airways has bagged another nod from the Indian government by clearing the security process by the Ministry of Home Affairs. The ministry is responsible for the internal security of the country, and its approval paves the way for Jet to clear the last few bits left to relaunch operations.
A letter was sent to the airline by the Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA) on May 6, communicating the grant of the security clearance, according to reports.
"It is directed to refer to your application to convey security clearance for change in shareholding pattern of the company/firm, for scheduled operator permit, on the basis of security clearance received from the Ministry of Home Affairs."
It also added that the clearance can be withdrawn in case of any adverse inputs from the home ministry.
Jet's team has been working behind the scenes to get all the necessary approvals for operations to start. Days ago, it conducted a test flight to show the aviation regulator DGCA that the airplane and its components are operating normally. Next comes a set of proving flights needed to get the AOC.
