Air Sahara to go solo on int’l flight

Mumbai: With its Rs 2,300-crore merger deal with Jet Airways running into rough weather, Air Sahara is planning to go ahead with its international plans on its own.
The carrier is exploring the possibility of starting international operations from September this year. The earlier plan was that the single entity formed after the merger would operate domestic as well as international flights.
Air Sahara president Alok Sharma told FE, "We will be starting our international operations from September and we are looking at destinations like Thailand and China to start with." The airline already operates flights to Colombo and Kathmandu. The carrier also has the permission to operate long-haul international flights.
