The challenges ahead are plentiful, but so are the opportunities. I am confident that the stringent measures we are putting in place will develop Jet Airways into a market leader that offers immense value and quality to domestic and international guests, supports the economic development of India and the other countries it serves, and achieves sustainable profitability. The three-year plan has already resulted in demonstrable progress and Jet Airways' financial foundation is much healthier today.
