  12. 12.  Jet Airways should discontinue loss making routes where airport charges have increased but there is no increase in revenues from those routes  Jet Airways should think of adding flights to profit making routes like Gulf and ASEAN markets  Jet Airways should sale/sale and leaseback some of its aircrafts.  Revised fare  staff restructuring  Effective marketing strategies & pull customers  Join global airlines alliance
  13. 13.  Diverting part of its fleet based on the demand supply scenario  Unique business model with presence across segments  Leasing out owned fleet to capitalize on the demand-supply mismatch.  Sell the old aircraft  Presence in 75 countries therefore route sharing is also an option  Network expansion  Termination of non-profitable routes  Focus on International segment- key driver for profitability  Improving domestic business ◦ strong brand image ◦ increase its domestic capacity and capture a greater share of the demand supply
  14. 14.  Proposed Jet-Etihad deal will bring immediate revenue growth and cost synergy opportunities for both the airlines and will help strengthen the balance sheet  Key cost benefits and cost synergies in fleet acquisition, maintenance, joint purchasing opportunities for fuel, spare parts, equipment and catering supplies as well as external services such as insurance and technology support will come through  Other areas of co-operation will include joint training of pilots, cabin crew and engineers
  15. 15.  All this above will result in accelerated return to sustainable profitability.  Jet announced that they were ready to sell a 24% stake to Etihad at US$379 million  Jet Airways plans to raise external commercial debt worth $300 million to replace its existing high cost loans. The total debt is a little over Rs 11,700 crore, of which Rs 7,300 crore is an aircraft acquisition loan. The rest is working capital and other short-term debt.  The airline will save around $30 million (Rs 183 crore) in reduced interest outgo after the debt restructuring. 
