Airlines company Akasa Air is starting its first commercial flight on August 7. Aakasa Air's first flight will be from Mumbai to Ahmedabad in a Boeing 737Max plane. The booking of tickets has started for 28 flights that will fly on the Mumbai-Ahmedabad route every week from August 7, the company said. At the same time, 28 flights will start operating on the Bangalore-Kochi route from August 13.
"Akasa Air's network plan is centered on creating a strong pan-India presence and connecting metro to tier 2 and tier 3 locations across the country." We began operations with flights between Mumbai and Ahmedabad on the brand-new Boeing 737 MAX. "We will take a staged approach to support our network development objectives, linking additional cities incrementally as we add two aircraft to our fleet each month in our first year," said Praveen Iyer, Co-founder and Chief Commercial Officer of Akasa Air.
According to a press release, the airline's passenger seats will have softer seat cushions, more leg room, and USB outlets for every passenger. Cafe Akasa, the airline's buy-on-board food service, offers a variety of high-quality fusion meals, farm-inspired and plant-based alternatives, pasta, Vietnamese rice rolls, hot chocolate, and a year-round festival menu inspired by Indian cuisines and festivals.
