Akasa Air announces International Flights to Kuwait & Saudi Arabia


Akasa Air is set to broaden its horizons with plans to commence flights to Kuwait, Riyadh, and Jeddah by the close of October this year. This ambitious move follows closely on the heels of the airline’s inaugural overseas service to Doha earlier this month, signaling a robust appetite for international expansion.

Vinay Dube, the Founder and CEO, Akasa Air, expressed unwavering confidence in the airline’s international prospects, citing India’s vast potential as a key driving force. In an interview with PTI conducted on Thursday, Dube articulated the company’s eagerness to tap into the burgeoning opportunities presented by international routes.

Equipped with a fleet comprising 24 Boeing 737 Max aircraft, Akasa Air is poised to kickstart its international journey on March 28th with the launch of a Mumbai-Doha flight service. The airline plans to operate this route four times a week, marking a significant milestone in its foray into international aviation.

With its strategic expansion strategy, Akasa Air aims to not only bolster connectivity between India and key destinations in the Middle East but also to cater to the growing demand for air travel in the region. By leveraging its modern fleet and customer-centric approach, the airline is primed to carve a niche for itself in the competitive international aviation landscape.

As the global aviation industry gradually rebounds from the challenges posed by the pandemic, Akasa Air’s proactive approach towards international expansion underscores its commitment to meeting the evolving needs of travellers while seizing emerging opportunities in the market. With a clear vision and a robust operational framework in place, the airline is poised to chart a course towards sustainable growth and success in the dynamic realm of international air travel.
