Coming soon: MRDL Airlines!

A new full service start-up airline, run by a real estate entrepreneur, would begin operations from New Delhi to some northern hill towns by October.
The MRDL Airlines, which has plans to acquire five RJ-70 aircraft from British Aerospace and an equal number of Mi-172 helicopters, would launch flights from Delhi to Kullu Dharamsala and Dehradun in the next three months, once the aircraft start being inducted, chairman of MRDL group of companies, Gopal Kumar Goyal said.
While the RJ-70, to be inducted on lease-purchase basis, would be about 8-years old with a capacity of 70 seats in executive and economy configuration, the helicopters to be acquired from Russian firm Kazan Helicopters would be 27-seaters.
On pricing, former Vayudoot chief Harsh Vardhan, who is an aviation consultant for the MRDL, said it would be done in a competitive manner and would be flexible.
