Prince Air, India's 1st subscription-based airline, promises economical chartered flights

From news to music to online cabs, subscription is the buzzword these days. In the current world, it is not unusual to fancy a subscription service that provides unlimited travel on private jets. Taking cue, Prince Air, a Delhi-based company, is all set to launch first subscription-based chartered flight services in India.

Sanket Raj Singh, the founder of Prince Air, looks to revolutionise private jet flying that is currently time-consuming and expensive. Currently, a chartered flight service on an average costs about Rs 2 lakh to Rs 3 lakh in India. However, members of Prince Air would be able to travel on as many flights as they want across the three destinations of Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru for a monthly fee.
ingh promises that with Prince Air, the amount would be just a “fraction”—80 per cent to 90 per cent less than the actual cost. In fact, for what most charter companies charge these days for per hour to fly on a private jet, Prince Air promises to fly unlimited, monthly across multiple cities in India.

Prince Air proves to be an attractive option for business travellers, including entrepreneurs, politicians and businessmen, for whom time is money. Singh plans to launch Prince Air services in the next eight to 10 months in India. To begin with, the services will be launched in Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru for which pre-booking membership has been opened. “We will be starting with six Bombardier or Embraer aircrafts and just want 2,500 members across Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru. The moment we close on 2,500 members, our membership would be closed,” says Singh. He adds that he has already received a few hundred requests and will have celebrities, politicians, entrepreneurs, businessmen and first-time jet fliers in the clientele.
