The home ministry has granted security clearance to Jet Airways that is planning to relaunch commercial flight operations in the next few months, according to an official document.

The Jalan-Kalrock Consortium is currently the promoter of Jet Airways. The airline in its old avatar was owned by Naresh Goyal and had operated its last flight on April 17, 2019. Last week, the airline conducted its test flight to and from the Hyderabad airport in a step towards obtaining the air operator certificate.
A letter sent by the civil aviation ministry to the airline on May 6 informed it about the grant of the security clearance by the home ministry.

Last Thursday’s test flight was conducted to prove to the DGCA that the aircraft and its components are operating normally. After the test flight, the airline has to conduct proving flights after which the DGCA will grant the air operator certificate.
