Jet Airways has said that its domestic market loads have declined by double digit figures in recent months and the airline will be reducing its long haul expansion plans. In addition, the number of flights Jet Airways will be offering in its winter schedule, will be approximately 15% lower than originally planned.

As a consequence, personnel hired for the expansion, probationers and unconfirmed personnel, (who have been recently hired), will be released by the airline. As a first step, around 800 flight attendants, recently recruited for the planned expansion program, which has now been suspended, have been released. Jet Airways is also in the process of releasing personnel in other categories also. 

The other categories include probationary and unconfirmed personnel in other areas including cockpit crew and management personnel to reflect the lower number of flights and seats offered.

In a statement Jet Airways, said, "We wish to clarify that the reconsideration of our operations has been ongoing for some time now and this adjustment in personnel numbers did not result from the planned alliance with Kingfisher Airlines."

"As painful as it may be for every single person affected, this adjustment was inevitable in the greater interest of regaining viability of Jet Airways and to securing its economic health."
