IATA suspends Jet from clearing house membership

International airlines lobby IATA Thursday suspended membership of the grounded Jet Airways of its clearing house system, a move that is likely to impact the refund process to passengers.

The suspension of membership, which comes in the wake of the airline halting operations temporarily from last night, is with immediate effect, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) said in a circular.

“Consequently, claims by and against Jet Airways will not be processed by the clearing house with effect from and period 02 of the April 2019 clearing month,” the association said, adding however, those claims already submitted for clearance are excluded.
