Akasa Air has flown in Indian skies for over seven months. The airline has been the fastest among Indian airlines to reach 20 aircraft. Vinay Dube, founder and CEO of Akasa Air, says the airline plans to start international flights before the end of the year.
“We will have our first international flight before the end of the year. We’re not constructing a hub. Even today’s Indian airlines don’t make a living off of this. So, while we will build connections over time, we are not considering a hub concept. Many non-metros could also offer international flights.”
