The Indian airline has shown strong Q3 results.

Jet Airways has posted a pre-tax profit of Rs 2.4 billion (£32.5 million) for the third quarter of its financial year.

The private Indian airline had an 18.8 per cent increase in total revenues for the three months ending on December 31st 2010.

Passenger growth in this quarter, compared to the same period in 2009, stood at 15 per cent.
