In the matter of Jet Airways (Principal Bench New Delhi (11.06.2020))


In this case, the RP filed an interlocutory application seeking approval of the Tribunal for the sale of one of the non-core assets of the CD; which would clear its overseas debt and ensure six aircrafts were freed from encumbrances. The RP claimed that the proceeds from the proposed sale would be utilized for clearing the residual dues, which remained payable to Export-Import Bank of The United States (US Exim Bank) for the finance lease created on six aircrafts of the CD; and to release the charge-holder’s security interest created in favour of the non-core asset. 

The aircrafts were in the US Exim Bank’s possession. It had agreed that upon payment of USD 13 million, it would transfer the title of the aircrafts to the CD, which would add around USD 200 million to the CD’s estate. 


The Tribunal noted that the non-core asset had never been used by the CD as a part of its airline business. That the sale of the said asset would raise vital funds of USD 13 million required for payment to the US Exim Bank, and would unlock the full value of the aircrafts for the estate of the CD.

The Tribunal observed that there was no objection either from any member of the CoC, or from the charge holder of the premises, and that it would add huge value to the CD. Also, that the arrangement would be beneficial to the CD, as well as to all stakeholders. Therefore, considering this, the Tribunal allowed the Applicant to sell the non-core assets, and utilize the proceeds to pay the charge-holder of the assets and to pay the balance sum for settlement of the overseas dues and CIRP costs.
