Akasa Air, India’s newest airline, took delivery of its much anticipated first Boeing 737 MAX aircraft in Seattle, USA. With a strong commitment to democratise the skies, the airlines’ total order of 72 aircraft includes an initial delivery of 18 aircraft by March 2023, followed by delivery of the remaining 54 aircraft over the course of the next four years.
Commenting on the successful delivery, Vinay Dube, managing director and CEO of Akasa Air said: “This is indeed a symbolic milestone in the journey of Akasa Air, bringing us one step closer to the process of obtaining our Air Operator’s Permit (AOP) and leading to our commercial launch. While we are extremely happy with this achievement, we want to keep ourselves focussed on the task of delivering on our vision to transform India’s air transportation ecosystem, support the nation’s economic growth engine and help fellow Indians chase their dreams”.
The company is getting its first aircraft in Delhi this week as it arrives from Seattle, Dube added.
