Jet Airways has dropped plans indefinitely to start dedicated freighter services, as it doesn’t find market conditions conducive, said two people in the know. India’s second-biggest airline by market share had in February applied to the country’s aviation regulator for approval. It currently flies cargo in the belly hold of its passenger aircraft.

“The launch of dedicated freighter operations by Jet Airways has been deferred indefinitely due to commercial and operational reasons,” said a spokesman at Jet. “Internal processes and framework are in place at Jet Airways and our strategic partner Etihad Airways to allow the initiative to progress at a later date,” he added.

Jet had plans to wet lease an Airbus A330200 F freighter plane from its strategic partner Etihad Airways. The Abu Dhabi based airline owns 24% in Jet. Sources said the airline had plans to fly freighter planes to neighbouring countries.
