New Delhi: Billionaire investor Rakesh Jhunjhunwala's airline Akasa Air on Wednesday unveiled its aircraft livery and tagline.

In October, the airline had received aviation ministry's no objection certificate (NOC) which made it eligible to apply for air operator permit from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).

The airline hopes to start operations by summer of 2022.

It had recently placed an order for 72 Boeing 737 Max at the Dubai air show. The deliveries are expected to begin next year.

The proposed ultra low cost carrier (LCC) is piloted by aviation veteran Vinay Dube, who is its CEO.
