India's Air Costa to expand licence to entail national ops

Air Costa is planning to expand its operational scope beyond its current regional limitations Chief Financial Officer Vivek Choudhary has disclosed. Speaking to India's Economic Times, Choudhary said his airline had already made the relevant application to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).

Launched in 2012, Air Costa's operations are restricted to India's Southern Region whose confines includes the metros in and around Bangalore, Chennai, and Hyderabad. At present, India has four defined regions in which so-called "Regional Carriers" may operate: North, South, West, East/North-East. Each region coincides with an existing Flight Information Region (FIR) with its airports defined by the Airports Authority of India (AAI).
