No-frills Air One to take wings in May
Air One –– another Bangalore-based airline –– is gearing up for operations on non-trunk routes this summer with leased 50-seater Embraer ERJ 145 aircraft.
Air One has decided in favour of the middle path. The low-cost airline will serve only snacks and cold-drinks on board, but that would be complimentary service and passengers need not pay for the facility, Air One managing director Dr J W Lobo told ET.
The airline will operate on non-trunk routes and is looking at Delhi-Thiruvananthapuram service, one of the longest routes in the domestic sector. The ERJ 145, fitted with Rolls Royce engines, will take three hours and 20 minutes for a flight on the sector, he added.
Air One has hired a number of ex-Indian Airlines hands like former finance director R N Saxena and former operations director Capt P Chaudhari.
