Air Sahara resumes operations
New Delhi: After the much-touted takeover of Air Sahara by the
country's largest private airline Jet Airways collapsed last night, the
Sahara Group resumed charge of Air Sahara and started normal opertions
"I see energy and enthusiasm in people behind the counters and I am
seeing something positive," Air Sahara President Alok Sharma told
reporters at Delhi airport here.
The airline would give passengers very good service, he said, adding,
"they (Air Sahara employees) are looking after passengers very well."
About Jet describing Air Sahara as a loss-making enterprise, Sharma said
the numbers being quoted were far from truth.
"Had the clearance come in, the numbers would not have gone bad," he
said, taking a dig at Jet officials. "Many of the things going around
are figment of imagination," he added.
Sahara Group took over operations after Jet Airways' Rs 2,300 crore
bid to acquire Air Sahara collapsed yesterday, more than five months
after the biggest deal in Indian civil aviation sector was announced.
Sri Lanka was air Sahara's first international destination.
