The statement comes after the debt-ridden airline on Thursday suspended long-haul west-bound flight departures for one night.

“Directed Secretary @MoCA_GoI to review issues related to #JetAirways. Asked him to take necessary steps to minimise passenger inconvenience and ensure their safety,” Prabhu tweeted.

The airline’s decision to halt west-bound flights came after it was left with only 14 aircraft from around 120 last year, triggering speculations over its survival as a lengthy stake sale process continued.
