From CNN:

“Jet Airways has canceled all its international flights, raising fears that it may be close to collapse.

The airline said in a statement on Friday that it “has canceled its international operations from 12th to 15th April.”
All of Jet’s long-haul services — including to London, Paris and Amsterdam — were suspended from Thursday night, but a spokesperson initially said earlier Friday that all long-haul flights had resumed.
However, the airline later announced the cancellation of all international flights until Monday, adding that it was “working to minimize guest inconvenience.”
