Akasa Air Starts Flights To North-East India

India’s newest budget carrier Akasa Air is rapidly covering all corners of the country, with its latest flights to Guwahati and Agartala in North-East India. The airline has seen steady growth in just over two months of operations and has captured almost 1% of India’s domestic market share.

On October 21st, Akasa Air started connecting Bengaluru (BLR) in South India to Agartala (IXA) via Guwahati (GAU) in the North East. The airline announced GAU and IXA as its latest destinations last month, with Guwahati being the gateway to the state of Assam and Agartala as one of the fastest-growing cities in the region.

Flight QP1323 has a scheduled departure time of 09:20 from Bengaluru, arriving in Guwahati at 12:25. After a brief stopover, it leaves for Agartala at 13:00 with an arrival time of 13:55.

Tripura Chief Minister Manik Saha was at Agartala’s Maharaja Bir Bikram Airport to mark the occasion along with Minister of Agriculture & Farmers Welfare and Tourism & Transport, Pranajit Singha Roy, and Kailash Chander Meena, the airport director.

The airline also consolidated its Bengaluru-Chennai (MAA) network yesterday by adding a 5th frequency between this route. Akasa now flies to eight destinations in the country.
