Akasa Air targets expansion to Doha, Riyadh, Jeddah, & Kuwait in 3-4 Months

Akasa Air is gearing up to introduce flights to key international destinations, eyeing Doha, Kuwait, Riyadh, and Jeddah within the next three to four months. Its CEO, Vinay Dube, expressed optimism about the expansion but noted a dependence on securing necessary permissions from foreign authorities.

With its Boeing 737 MAX aircraft’s capabilities, Akasa Air is not limiting its reach to the Middle East alone. Dube mentioned that the airline is considering additional medium-haul international routes, including destinations like Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, and the Maldives.

Amidst these plans, Akasa Air has been hinting at a significant aircraft order to fuel its future growth. Currently operating with 20 Boeing 737 MAX planes from its initial order of 72, the airline is on the verge of finalizing a triple-digit aircraft order, potentially within the next few weeks or months.

Dube revealed that by the end of December, Akasa Air aims to close the year with a fleet of 22 aircraft. Looking ahead, the plan is to reach approximately 25 aircraft by March, doubling the fleet size by the end of the next fiscal year.
