Air India has been in the news recently after it announced lending hand to Jet Airways.
Air India Express, the international budget arm of Air India on Sunday, is examining the possibility of leasing some Boeing 737 aircraft of grounded carrier Jet Airways.
Air India has hired over 150 cabin crew staff from the Jet Airways for its international routes on the Boeing 777 and 787 aircraft to manage passengers on board their international flights to London, Dubai and Singapore.
Earlier on April 17, the lenders had rejected the Jet Airways' plea for emergency funds of Rs1500 crore, which led to airline halting all its flights and operations temporarily, throwing the jobs of their 16000+ employees into jeopardy. Only five aircraft were left in operation.
