Akasa Air is the 7th schedule airline with brand name of SNV Aviation having corporate headquarters at Mumbai with Boeing Max – 8 aircraft.
New Delhi: Minister of Civil Aviation Jyotiraditya Scindia on Sunday virtually flagged off the first flight of Akasa Air from Mumbai to Ahmedabad. The flight took off from Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport in Mumbai.
Scindia, on the occasion, said, “The inaugural flight today is a new dawn in the history of Civil Aviation in India. It is because of the foresightedness and visionary goal and zeal of the Prime Minister that we have seen first time in India, the democratisation of the civil aviation. Earlier it was an industry which was considered very elitist, but now because of his vision we are seeing a transformation over last eight years in terms of accessibility, availability affordability and inclusion in the Civil Aviation which we have never seen before. In this new environment, I would like to welcome Akasa Air and I am very confident that in coming days Akasa Air will certainly make a very important mark.”
He further added that over the last eight years India’s Civil Aviation industry has been completely transformed. Under UDAN scheme, we have 425 routes aiming to go up to1000 routes, 68 new airports aiming to touch 100 airports. In next 4 years we are expecting 40 crore travellers through Civil Aviation in India. That day is not far when along with rail transport and road transport Civil Aviation will become the bulwark of the transportation in India.
Akasa Air is the 7th schedule airline with brand name of SNV Aviation having corporate headquarters at Mumbai with Boeing Max – 8 aircraft. Akasa Air plans to be a low-cost carrier with single fleet and all economy seats.
