Jet Airways is looking to get on board one of the big international airline alliances. Chairman Naresh Goyal said his airline would join either SkyTeam or Star Alliance. He added that this would expand his Jet’s revenues by about 5%. The government is currently opposed to Jet becoming part of the Star Alliance because Air India is joining it. Meanwhile another airline, Kingfisher, is becoming part of OneWorld.
