Ethiopian Airlines has signed a shareholding agreement with Zambia's main develoment agency to relaunch the southern African country's flag carrier at an initial cost of $30 million.
Jet Airways had told pilots it had enough cash left to keep operating for just 60 days and would need to put in place cost-cutting measures including pay cuts.
The aircraft was delivered to the airline just last week and flew straight to the airshow for spectators to tour and experience first-hand.
The case comes a year after Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt cut ties with Doha on June 5, 2017.
Xian is set to become the fifth Chinese city with a direct flight to Pyongyang after Beijing, Shenyang, Shanghai and Chengdu.
The airline said it was looking for a short-term loan of Rs 10bn ($148mn) "to meet urgent working capital requirements".
The Central Bureau of Investigation earlier this week named Tony Fernandes, the airline and others in a complaint.
The family of Korean Air chief executive Cho Yang Ho has also been accused of smuggling luxury goods into the country.
The aircraft, the first of approximately 50 new aircraft to be added to the Air Italy fleet by 2022, is the first of 20 brand new Boeing 737 Max aircraft that will join the airline over the next three years.
