New airline AirAsia India gets licence to fly

AirAsia India, the joint venture between AirAsia and Tata Group, has got license to start their operations in India.

The DGCA today issued air operator permit to the airline. However, it could be sometime before the airline actually takes off.

A public interest litigation is pending before the Delhi High Court over granting of approval to AirAsia India, though the court has denied an interim stay on the matter.

AirAsia plans to operate a fleet of Airbus A320-200 aircraft, initially with 4-5 planes and quickly expand to 10 in a year.
