The development comes in the backdrop of the aviation security regulator asking foreign airlines to make alternative arrangements soon.
The beleaguered airline is facing insolvency proceedings from various vendors over unpaid dues.
"After the suspension of operations, approval for one month of transition time with effect from April 30 is granted to Jet by the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) headquarters to carry out security services function for foreign carriers. However, the service provider (Jet) may pull out at any time, keeping in view their current state of affairs. You are requested to make alternative arrangements as early as possible for security functions and uninterrupted operations," the BCAS wrote in a letter to foreign airlines on Friday, as seen by Business Standard.
Jet provides security and engineering services to other airlines, which includes, pre-departure checks, baggage X-ray (in non-metro airports), frisking of staff and frisking of passengers ahead of boarding, the report said.
