Etihad leases plane from India's Jet
Mumbai, March 26, 2013
India's Jet Airways has leased a wide body aircraft along with 60 of its cabin crew to Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways, according to a report.
The wet lease comes even as the two airlines continue their talks on Etihad taking an equity stake in Jet.
The cabin crew will be trained by Etihad in Mumbai over the next three months, said the Economic Times report.
In an earlier $70 million deal, Jet had sold its Heathrow-London airport slots to Etihad.
The new wet lease agreement covers an A330-200, the report said. Jet has a fleet of over 100 aircraft, including 11 Airbus A330-200s.
