Mumbai: Struggling private carrier Jet Airways has stated that it will disburse 25 per cent of the September salary to its pilots and engineers along with the senior management on 25 October.
The airline, however, in a communication to these categories of employees did not give any time line on the payment of the rest 75 per cent of the salary for last month. The airline has over 16,000 employees on the payroll. Jet Airways has been delaying payment of salaries to these categories of staffers since August.
“We would like to inform you that the first tranche (25 per cent) of September salary will be remitted on the forthcoming week of 25 October,” chief people officer, Jet Airways, Rahul Taneja, said in the communication.
“While there is delay in the payment of the September payroll, please be reassured that the company remains committed to honour its obligation and is making every possible effort to release the remaining amount at the earliest,” Taneja added in the communication.
