In the latest quarter under review, the airline saw its fuel costs climb to Rs 1,428.89 crore which also pushed the total expenses higher. The expenses went up to Rs 5,405.32 crore in the December quarter.


Jet Airways Chairman Naresh Goyal said various initiatives undertaken by the company in relation to cost synergies, revenue management opportunities and ancillary revenues have resulted in significant improvement in operating cash flow.


"Further, our continued thrust to improve operational efficiency and initiatives to raise funds are expected to result in sustainable cash flows," he said.
