Airline companies have suffered heavy losses due to the Corona epidemic, but veteran industrialists feel that this will be a profitable deal in the coming days. Rakesh Jhunjhunwala’s Akash Airline, known as the Warren Buffett of the country, has got the NOC certificate from the government. SNV Aviation Private Limited has shared information about this. He said that the company will very soon start the airline under the name of ‘Akasa Air’. It is believed that its operation will start in the summer season next year.
Akash Air is supported by Vinay Dubey, former CEO of Jet Airways. The airline is now waiting to get the license from DGCA. If the license is received on time, it is possible that in the summer of 2022, you will be able to travel by air by Akash Air. Former IndiGo President Aditya Ghosh is also on the board of Akash Air. He has congratulated Vinay Dubey’s team for NOC.
Many congratulations to #VinayDube and Team #AKASA on receiving the NOC from MOCA as it embarks on its journey to offer Indian flyers a warm, efficient, reliable and affordable travel experience with an endeavour to be the nation’s most dependable, affordable and greenest airline
