New Delhi: Akasa Air was given an AOC (Air Operator Certificate) by the Indian regulator DGCA on Thursday. The airline will operate only Boeing aircraft and has ordered 72 737 MAX aircraft, of which one (a 737-8) is already in its fleet and another is anticipated to follow soon. “We are thrilled to announce the receipt of our Air Operator Certificate,” Akasa Air posted on Twitter (AOC). This is a huge accomplishment that will allow us to begin selling tickets for our flights and launch our commercial activities.

Akasa is notable for becoming this year’s second passenger airline to be approved to fly. In May, Jet Airways’ licence was restored thanks to its new owners. In November of last year, Akasa, doing business as SNV Aviation, ordered 72 Boeing 737 Max aircraft.
If you recall, the airline released a preview of the appearance of its employees on July 3. A black-and-white film teaser depicted crew members getting ready for duty. Can’t remain composed. Stay tuned,” tweeted Akasa Air.

The Ministry of Civil Aviation had granted the airline a no-objection certificate in August 2021 to begin operations. On June 21, Akasa Air, whose airline code is QP, got its first 737 MAX. The airline would start flying with two aircraft, later increasing its fleet every month.
