Yesterday, I wrote about how Jet Airways’ international operations were further tottering over after they had already cancelled a large number of flights since December 2018 for their international operations. The airline had yesterday cancelled all operations to Singapore and some operations to Amsterdam and Paris. The airline also had one of their 777 aircraft impounded in Amsterdam with the backing of a court order by a vendor who wasn’t paid. But there is more developing on Jet Airways international flight cancellation.
This cancellation prompted Changi Airport to put out an alert as well, something not seen often with them.
#ADVISORY: @jetairways (9W) has suspended its services to and from Singapore until further notice. Passengers are advised to contact their booking agent or the airline directly (email@example.com) for available options.

Jet Airways cancels most flights to London/Amsterdam/Paris for Friday, April 12, 2019
Now, the airline has cancelled the following flights for Friday:
- 9W 235: Amsterdam to Bangalore
- 9W236: Bangalore to Amsterdam
- 9W 231: Amsterdam to Mumbai
- 9W 234: Amsterdam to Toronto
- 9W234: Delhi to Amsterdam

- 9W127: Paris to Chennai
- 9W123: Paris to Mumbai
I am not sure about the suspension at the moment, but Jet Airways, as usual, has stated operational reasons to cancel these flights. One theory running through my head is they don’t want any more aircraft repossessed abroad or impounded, so they are cutting their losses. Another one is, that they have received back the aircraft in Amsterdam, and now they need to realign all their aircraft.
I will update this position as we get more information, however, for the moment, if you are flying Jet Airways abroad or flying back on Jet Airways, make sure you check your flight status before leaving for the airport.
For Delta/KLM/Air France passengers, they should request to be accommodated on the KLM/Air France flights to Mumbai and Delhi if they don’t have an operating flight with Jet Airways on their day of travel.
