Jet Airways posts net loss of Rs 713.60 crore in Q2 FY'12

The airline had a net profit of Rs 12.40 crore in the corresponding period of the 2010-11 fiscal.

"The quarter's results have been adversely impacted due to high ATF prices and a steep decline in the value of rupee against the US Dollar. The airlines have been progressively increasing the fare to pass on the rising input cost including the cost of ATF," Jet Airways said in a filing to the BSE.

Total income of the company during the period increased to Rs 3,293.54 crore, from Rs 3,067.62 crore in the comparable period, it said.

Further, during the half-year ended September 30, 2011, the airline reported a net loss of Rs 836.76 crore against a net profit of Rs 15.92 crore in the year-ago period.
