Air Costa secures DGCA nod to be pan-India airliner

Regional airline Air Costa has received a licence from the regulator, the Director-General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), to operate flights to any destination within India. The airline has been operating with a regional licence for three years since inception. The pan-India approval has come on the occasion of the third anniversary for Air Costa. Vivek Choudhary CEO of Air Costa, in a statement said, ?Receiving a pan-India permit is another milestone for all of us at Air Costa. This validates the hard work and efforts put in by each one of our 800-strong team over the past years. I also personally would like to extend my gratitude to the DGCA, our partners Embraer and GECAS, and our esteemed trade partners, who have supported us.? ?With this permit we can now replicate our philosophy of connecting the smaller towns and cities to metros across India. We plan to connect Delhi and Mumbai to smaller towns and cities across India. Our immediate focus now moves to adding aircraft and expanding our operations,? he said. Currently the airline covers eight destinations including Vijayawada, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Tirupati, and Vizag. After obtaining the licence, the airliner will be able to add more destinations, including trunk sectors such as Delhi, Mumbai and other busy air travel sectors such as Lucknow, Bhubaneswar, Chandigarh and Indore.
