Jet Airways acquisition of Sahara Airlines Limited

Share

Air Sahara has been acquired by Jet Airways and it is proposed to be called Jet Lite. I had booked tickets by Air Sahara for a trip on 19th May, 2007 prior to the merging. After the merger of, I was a bit worried as to what will be status of my tickets.

However mails I have received from both the airlines today has allayed my fears. I being a registered frequent flyer member to both these airlines, I had received two separate mailers from these airlines. The content of the letters are almost identical, with only exception being the names of their respective frequent flyer programs. The gist of the mail text is reproduced below:

This indicates that though the airlines have merged, they will continue to operate as earlier. So one need not worry about their bookings. I hope that they will also have separate check in counters at airports.
