There was a recruitment ad in yesterday's news papers - the blurb goes "Something special is in the air - Paramount Airways aims at providng a world-class experience to passengers in the Indian skies. A fleet of ultra-modern jet aircrafts and a truly promising future awaits you. We are recruiting candidates for the following positions, to be based at Coimbatore."
Followed by requirements for Trainee Captains, Senior Co-pilots, Co-pilots, Cabin Crew & Engineering. Also Customer service/ marketing/ reservations/ operations/ security/ finance/ HR/ IT/ Catering/ Secretarial & other depts.
If anything, I'd say the more the merrier. I mean, it's not public money they're taking to get started, so if someone has a couple of spare millions and a fancy for airlines, let him/her start up an airline by all means. In the end only the best will be around, with the junk having burnt out their money/fingers. It's going to need a lot of players/aircraft to increase the momentum in the industry. Plus it's going to help keep existing players on their toes (though some never learn )

This link to the Wednesday's TOI Ascent (Bangalore edition) should bring up the ad directly. From the drawing/rendering of the aircraft in the ad, it seems like a smaller RJ type of aircraft. A search for the name on google does not throw up any links to a coimbatore entity (but it does to a british airline with the same name)
