Brief Introduction
Aviation as an infrastructure segment has played vital role in facilitating the growth of business and economy in India. A robust civil aviation set-up is key to seamless flow of investment, trade and tourism, with significant multiplier effects through the economy. Aviation sector does not only provide air transport for passengers and goods, but also is a strategic element for employment generation. About one-third of world trade (by value) is delivered by air and about half of international tourism is facilitated by air links.
Civil aviation industry is an important engine for innovation and technological progress in a world of decreasing barriers to trade.

Jet has recently leased a wide body aircraft along with 60 of its cabin crew to Etihad. According to the ‘aviation’ jargon, a wet lease of an aircraft is an arrangement whereby the lessor (Jet in this case), provides crew, maintenance and aircraft for a consideration. In turn the lessor takes on the responsibility for supplying and operating the aircraft.
