Jet Airways CEO on twitter: Shares New Livery, safety card and safety tags
Sanjiv Kapoor, the Former Oberoi Group President joined Jet Airways as CEO on 4th April 2022. After joining Jet, he has been dedicated towards restarting Jet airways, which stop its operation more than 3 years ago.
Recently, the airline has done all preparation they can to restart the Jet 2.0. They were on track to start the airline by making new website, hiring senior management staff, even Aviation Professionals like Captains, Cabin Crew, engineering staff, ground staff and more. They have also leased Airbus A320neo and are painted in Jet airways livery. So, with this it’s clear that Jet is on verge of Comeback, but nobody knows when, not even the CEO.
On Friday the Jet Airways 2.0 CEO in his profile shared and replied many users with very interesting photos.
Firstly, He shared a post regarding safety instructions and said, “So, we had safety cards prepared for both types (to keep people guessing!) in preparation for the then planned Oct ops launch. These are the top sections or “headers” of the cards. As one can see, we were looking into every detail, every visual aesthetic. God is in the details.”
Later he replied some user that it’s not Boeing 737 MAX 8 instead its B737-8 and shared the image of Singapore Airlines safety card. “Some asking whether the word “MAX” is required on the card. The answer is no. MAX is a marketing name. The aircraft is the 737-8. See SIA safety card example.”
The most important thing he shared on twitter was the new livery of Jet airways B737-8. When somebody told him, “Sir, I’d love to see the 737 Max with the black details around the cockpit windows like your A320neo that we’ve seen images of. Wishing you and the team all the best for the restart which I hope would be soon. Looking forward to flying 9W again!”
He replied to him with, ” You mean something Like this?.”
But as mentioned Jet revival will be going to take a while. But we know that Jet Airways 2.0 Mangement and team is working hard to restart the operations.
