Hey all,

I was doing a little reserach and wanted to know more information on this airline. Is there any list of destinations served or route maps available? Also what was their fleet types? Are there any pictures of their aircraft available?

I remember seeing one of their Dornier 228s in Bangalore when I was a kid, but I know for a fact I've never flown on them.

Any information regarding this airline would be most welcome.

Thanks!

Boy! That brings back memories!!

I think that company is now defunct since the Indian govt. unregulated the airline industry in India. Vayudoot was a financial drag and was later merged into Indian Airlines. I am not sure of the exact dates/times, but it has been quite a few years. Same goes for another airline ModiLuft (partnership b/w modi group and lufthansa) which went bankrupt and later resurrected as LCC Spice.



Life only makes sense when you look at it backwards.

It does bring back good memories. We once travelled on Vayudoot on a holiday package to Mussorie as a kid.Must have been 1985-86. Delhi-Dehradun on Vayudoot Donier 228 and then by bus via Rishikesh and Haridwar. I still remember seeing a some moths between the window panes!

The whole package costed Rs. 555 including 3 nights at the Savoy in Mussorie. I believe it was a promotion they were running.

To contribute to your question - Dehradun was one of the cities they served!

I remember the Do228 & the HS748 of this Airline well.The famous round head rivets on the aircraft fuselage of the latter was interesting.

Quoting Sammyk (Reply 5):

I agree...does anyone have any pictures or route map history?

A list of destinations served would be great too.

This is all I could find:

I seem to remember they were the first operator of the HAL assembled 228. I assume the HS748's were also HAL assembled.

Hey..I remember a charter airliner out of then Calcutta called Jamair. They had DC-3s in their flleet. Also remember an airline named just 'Airways' but not sure what part of India they based in. I also beleive they flew DC-3s. This is going back to the early 70s.
Thanks for the memories.
