Jet Airways saw its net profit for the second quarter of financial year 2017-18 fall to Rs 49.63 crore in comparison to Rs 549.02 crore recorded last year for the corresponding period last fiscal. Foreign currency fluctuation loss and impairment loss of Rs 56.57 crore on account of loans to its subsidiary JetLite also contributed to the decline.
