Akasa becomes India’s first airline to induct B737-8-200; ready for international flights

As India’s first B737-8-200 (VT-YAV) gets inducted into Akasa Air’s fleet, the airline is all set to embark upon a new chapter. This will be Akasa Air’s 20th plane, completing the mandate of the National Civil Aviation Policy 2016, which requires an airline to have 20 aircraft in its fleet to be able to start international operations.

This will also be significant for Indian aviation since this will be the first B737-8-200 aircraft in India. The airline currently has 19 aircraft in its fleet and has placed an order for 76 aircraft, of which 23 are the MAX-8 while the other 53 would be the B737-8-200.
