Sources told CNBC-TV18 that the airline continues to operate a further curtailed network with five planes and sustainability of operations will depend on the infusion of these funds.
The lenders are yet to respond to Jet Airways' request of interim funding and a total of around 10-11 flights have taken off but the total operational aircraft per se remains around five and five is a number that they need to maintain in order to keep their operational license in India.
Also the CEO of the airline Vinay Dube wrote a letter to employers late last night saying that the company had reached out to lead banker State Bank of India (SBI) yet again and has stressed the need of interim funding and also stressed that this interim funding will be critical to continuation of airline operations.
