The second airline to launch commercial flight operations from the soon-to-be Noida International Airport in Uttar Pradesh was Akasa Air on Friday. A statement claimed that IndiGo was the first airline to establish a partnership for commercial services with the Greenfield Airport, which is close to the nation’s capital.
According to a release, Akasa Air and Noida International Airport in Hyderabad inked a collaboration agreement on Friday during the industry gathering “Wings 2024.” We are thrilled to announce Akasa Air as a new airline partner, which is a big step closer to the airport’s inauguration. The collaboration demonstrates our dedication to enhancing aviation connections in western Uttar Pradesh and the Delhi-NCR, according to Christoph Schnellmann, CEO of Noida International Airport.
“We are excited to have Akasa Air join us on our mission to establish a comprehensive air network, connecting major metros as well as Tier-2 and Tier-3 cities across the country,” Schnellmann said. “Akasa Air is one of the fastest-growing airlines in the country.” According to him, the airport’s mission is still to provide travelers with the best possible connection and travel experience.
Vinay Dube, the founder and CEO of Akasa Air, said that the Noida International Airport is a prime example of the government’s emphasis on building aviation infrastructure as the nation progresses toward being a global aviation center.
“Akasa Air’s proposed partnership with the airport aligns with our goal of creating a comprehensive network that spans the entire country.”
“We are sure that working together would help us improve connections to and from Uttar Pradesh and provide a smooth travel experience for customers all throughout the nation. We are eager for the airport to open and are working toward our shared objective of enabling more Indians to enjoy air travel,” he said.
By the end of this year, the airport’s first phase is expected to be operational for aircraft.
