After the completion of two months of its activities, Akasa Air plans to establish Delhi as the sixth destination on its network and launch its maiden flight on the Delhi-Bengaluru and Delhi-Ahmedabad routes on Oct. 7.



The airline also announced Pets-on-Board, a pet-friendly service in line with its commitment to create an inclusive travel experience.

Both new routes will be served with daily flights in both directions. The airline has so far announced eight destinations including Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Kochi, Chennai, Delhi, Agartala and Guwahati with 11 non-stop routes.

Akasa Air, India’s newest airline, has completed the first two months of its commercial journey to build India’s greenest, most reliable and most affordable airline.

Speaking at an event to mark the airline’s first 60 days of operation, Vinay DubeFounder and Chief Executive Officer, akasa Air said: “Our first two months were very exciting and fulfilling as we transitioned from planning to commercial operations. We were hyper-focused on establishing and delivering an empathetic, reliable and dependable flying experience that has been witnessed in Indian skies thus far.”

In response to the rapid network expansion, Praveen Iyerco-founder and Chief Commercial Officer, Akasa Air, said: “We are delighted with the response we have received as we welcomed more than 100,000 passengers on board within just 60 days of operation. Further strengthening our domestic connectivity and catering for more flyers during the holiday season we are delighted to add Delhi to our network and connect the capital with the fast growing and vibrant cities of Bengaluru and Ahmedabad By expanding our network with a plane arriving every 15 days we aim to meeting our goal of developing a strong pan-Indian presence and we expect to operate 300 weekly flights by the end of October.”

Speaking about product, service and customer experience, Belson Coutinho, Co-Founder and Chief Marketing & Experience Officer, Akasa Air said, “We started with the promise to be a trusted airline focused on warm, efficient and reliable service”. As we continue our vision to create an inclusive and humane travel experience, Akasa’s pet-friendly service will begin on November 1, 2022, allowing passengers flying with Akasa Air to travel with their pets in the cabin. By going the extra mile to facilitate the travel experience for pet parents and their wards, we have teamed up with Umeed for Animals Foundation to ensure smooth pet-friendly travel,” he added.

Akasa Air has gradually expanded its network across the country, in a phased approach with a commitment to make travel in India accessible through the introduction of routes in Tier 2 and 3 cities. The company recently received its sixth aircraft and will have a fleet of 18 aircraft by the end of March 2023. Over the next four years, the airline will add 54 additional aircraft, bringing the total fleet size to 72 aircraft.
