In December last year, Synergy Group had sought more time to take a decision on investing in the grounded airline. In December 2019, the UK-based Hinduja Group yet again expressed interest to buy Jet Airways.
was admitted for insolvency on June 20 last year, after lenders failed to sell the grounded airline. Creditors' claims for the airline are of Rs 36,090 crore, of which Rs 14,640 crore was admitted as on October 20.
The airline has 12 aircraft, including three Boeing 737s, six Boeing 777s, and three Airbus A330s (including one leased to Air Serbia). Of them, the three Boeing 737s are fully-owned by the airline. There is a pending loan of around Rs 250 crore on the remaining planes.
Meanwhile, to settle liquidation in the Netherlands, the airline is selling one of its six Boeing 777 aircraft to KLM to settle pending aircraft loans and meet insolvency resolution expenses.
As reported by Business Standard, the deal value has not been disclosed, but sources said could fetch the airline around $23 million. As a part of the agreement, Dutch airline KLM will purchase a Jet Airways Boeing 777 aircraft, which was seized in Amsterdam last April, along with the grounded airline's marketing data and catering equipment.
