Indian Jet Airways defers introduction of Boeing 787 to its fleet
India’s second largest carrier Jet Airways has deferred the introduction of Boeing 787 to its fleet, according to The Business Standard.
In 2006, the carrier ordered 10 Boeing 787 Dreamliner and was set to receive the first in the 4Q 2017. However, the airline has chosen to defer the delivery in order to limit its widebody aircraft capacity addition. Jet Airways has not revealed the new date but the Indian media speculates that it may not be until 2019.
Jet Airways spokesman stated, that the airline is currently upgrading the capacity of on key international routes by deploying the six Boeing 777s which are returning from lease. When the extra wide-body aircraft will be inducted to carrier's fleet will depend "on the outcome of the review."
