The debt-laden airline, once India’s biggest private carrier, stopped flying in April 2019 after running out of cash, leaving thousands without jobs.

Shares of the airline jumped as much as 3.7% to 85 rupees on Thursday and were trading 2.4% higher at 0740 GMT.

The news on Jet comes a month after billionaire investor Rakesh Jhunjhunwala-backed low cost Indian carrier Akasa Air placed a $9 billion order for 72 Boeing 737 MAX jets. read moreReporting by Shivani Singh in Bengaluru; Editing by Devika Syamnath
