In a joint statement, the two carriers expressed confidence that once the plan is implemented, Jet Airways would "re-emerge as a viable and robust airline to reclaim its rightful place as airline of first choice for its customers".

Jet Airways has been grappling with financial woes and is looking to rejig debt as well as raise funds.

State Bank of India (SBI), on Monday, said no decision has been taken on moving the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) against Jet Airways.

On Sunday, officials associated with the lenders and key shareholders said SBI was considering moving the tribunal seeking insolvency proceedings against Jet Airways since it is running out of money for operations.

Crisis-hit Jet Airways Monday said it was working out a "mutually acceptable" arrangement regarding salary dues.

Salary payments have been delayed for many employees, including pilots. The airline management had promised to clear salary dues of its pilots by March.
