On June 21, the airline Akasa Air’s first Boeing 737 MAX touched down at New Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport. On June 15, according to Akasa Air, the airline was presented with the ceremonial keys to the aircraft in Seattle, USA. With the arrival of its first aircraft, Akasa Air is one step closer to receiving its Air Operator’s Permit (AOP).
The airline received the no-objection certificate from the Ministry of Civil Aviation in August 2021 to begin conducting commercial flights. The airline is supported by renowned investor Rakesh Jhunjhunwala as well as aviation legends Vinay Dube and Aditya Ghosh.
72 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft are part of Akasa Air’s aircraft order. The first 18 aircraft will be delivered by March 2023, while the remaining 54 aircraft will be delivered over the next four years.
By the end of July, the airline hopes to begin conducting commercial flights. “QP” will be its airline code. Superior flight experiences and low prices are Akasa Air’s main priorities.
