Sept 6 (Reuters) - Pilots of embattled carrier Jet Airways (India) Ltd have warned the airline’s management of ‘non-cooperation’ over default on salary payments, the Times of India reported on Thursday citing news agency Press Trust of India.
The airline, part-owned by Etihad Airways, has been struggling to stem losses in the world’s fastest-growing domestic aviation market, but has said it is confident it can slash costs and keep flying, dismissing reports it had told staff it was running out of cash.
"Withholding salaries, that too without prior notice, is a serious matter and the management will bear sole responsibility for any repercussions... failure to address the above points and not paying the salaries on time would lead to non-cooperation by pilots," Jet Airways' pilots said in a communication to the management earlier this week, the report said here
Jet Airways did not immediately respond to Reuters’ request for comment. (Reporting by Krishna V Kurup in Bengaluru; Editing by Sunil Nair)
