On April 17, 2019, Jet Airways shut down operations. The possibility of the grounding being lifted is now slim, given everything the airline had, such as planes, routes and so on are given away, and employees have left the building. Also, the airline has entered the process of being liquidated for whatever is left and to be distributed to everyone whose claims are found valid. Up for sale, perhaps, are the remaining aircraft of the airline which were owned by Jet Airways, the 49% stake in JetPrivilege and right down to the last chair that is still there.
The airline’s administrator (Interim Resolution Professional) had, in June 2019, invited everyone who the company owed anything, such as the Banks, the Employees and every one, to file a claim. As of yesterday, USD 3.6 Billion Dollars worth of claims were received from Banks, employees, and even for ticket refunds. Back in the day, I had posted about how to get your refund from the airline. I think that it would be very low probability now to receive your money, unless you had booked your ticket from a travel agent and they have access to the IATA deposits, which have still not been released to the agents.
So, to get pennies on the dollar for your refund, you should now apply for a refund from the airline’s Interim Resolution Professional, if you already have not done so.
Send an email to the email address email@example.com with subject of the email being “Refund Claim” by August 02, 2019. You need to use Form B for the claims, so download it here. Remember, you need to send proof of the ticket with the document for verification as well.
Eventually, your name needs to be on a List of Creditors which the Jet Airways India Limited owed money to. Once the list is finalised, the appropriate court will decide who gets how much money. Here is an FAQ that was put out by the IRP on July 4 as a guidance.
At this stage, the chances of getting your money returned are dim, but you should never say never, and still raise a claim.
Have you had success receiving any money from Jet Airways tickets?
