Inviting former Jet Airways cabin crew to come back and join us in relaunching India’s classiest airline.”

Jet Airways will begin its operations with female cabin crew for now and will hire male cabin crew later, following the Vistara’s hiring model. “For now we are inviting female crew only. Male crew recruitment to commence as we scale up,” it added.

Aviation regulator DGCA had on May 20 granted Jet Airways a revalidated Air Operator Certificate (AOC), allowing the airline to resume commercial flight operations. “Our operational hiring has commenced, with a call out to former Jet crew,” the airline’s CEO Sanjiv Kapoor said on Twitter.

“Commencement of hiring for pilots and engineers to follow in the coming days, when we make our aircraft choice reveal,” he added. The opening batch of the cabin crew members in the airline will consist of former staff only.
