Air International which is currently operating chartered and cargo flights from US, is now eyeing the Indian aviation sector. After contemplating airport and passenger traffic on various routes, the airline is in the process of introducing a new budget airline from Fujairah, UAE to various Indian cities. To start with, the company will start with five flights a week from Fujairah to any of the South Indian destinations, probably Kochi and will deploy an Airbus A320 on the route gradually expanding further. The new budget carrier will be offering cheaper airfares and allow additional baggage to passengers on India – UAE route.
Captain Rajan Nair, CEO, N-Air International informed that the Indian operations are expected to begin from June or July 2013. The aircraft and crew is standing by, awaiting approvals from DGCA.
“Our prime focus is on Indian market, primarily, on cities like Kochi, Kozhikode, Vishakhapatnam and Madurai, with flights to and from Fujairah. We plan to market these flights to the expat population from these cities which fly home frequently and also carry huge amounts of excess baggage,” he said.
