CARGO handler Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has seized a Jet Airways Boeing 777 at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport because of unpaid fees.

In a statement, WFS said: 'A Jet Airways passenger aircraft was seized at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport following a court order issued by Haarlem Court in favour of Worldwide Flight Services in relation to the outstanding payment of handling fees.



'We regret having to take this course of action and apologise for any inconvenience to the airline's customers. We hope Jet Airways will be able to resolve this matter as quickly as possible.'



Shortly after news of the seizure broke, Indian Oil Corp is reported to have halted fuel supplies to the airline for the second time.



The Reuters report said the airline has debts of more than US$1.2 billion and owes money to 'banks, aircraft lessors, suppliers, pilots', amongst others. However, the report said that other fuel firms are still supplying the airline.



State Bank of India recently led a group of lenders and invited bids for a stake of as much as 75 per cent in the airline.
