• Jet Airways flew a test flight to and from the Hyderabad airport.
• To obtain an air operator certificate.

Indigo CEO Sanjiv Kapoor congratulated Jet Airways on its new journey, saying that the latter has "set a very high bar" and that Indigo has "shown what is achievable by an airline in India in terms of size, scale, and consistency of operations, with a huge focus on the basics."

Airways flew a test flight to and from the Hyderabad airport to obtain an air operator certificate.

Jet Airways is in the process of resuming operations under its new promoters, the Jalan-Kalrock Consortium, after not flying since April 17, 2019. Kapoor said after the test flight that it was an emotional moment "for all the wonderful folks who have been working so hard to get Jet back in the skies.

A test flight is carried out to demonstrate to the aviation regulator, the DGCA that the aircraft and its components are in good working order.

An airline must conduct proving flights after the test flight on Thursday, after which the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) will grant the air operator certificate (AOC).

The DGCA and airline officials serve as passengers and cabin crew members on the proving flights, which are similar to commercial flights.

Yesterday was a momentous and emotional day for all of us, with a Jet-registered aircraft, flown by Jet crew, and with a Jet call-sign, back in the air after a gap of more than years!" Kapoor wrote in an e-mail to employees on Friday 6th May.

The amount of goodwill generated as a result has been enormous

This is the first time an airline has been resurrected and flown under its original call sign and name after a long period of inactivity.
He stated, "This is truly a historic moment!".
