Today, Akasa Air, India’s newest airline with the greenest and youngest fleet, unveiled the first look at its planes.

The airline, which is backed by ace investor and billionaire Rakesh Jhunjhunwala, posted photographs of its new aircraft today and stated that it will begin operations in July.

As it prepares for delivery, the airline shared photos of its first Boeing 737 Max plane from the production site in Portland, Oregon.

“The airline has confirmed its commitment to receiving its first aircraft in India by mid-June and launching commercial operations in India by July 2022,” the company said in a statement. By the end of March 2023, Akasa Air expects to operate 18 aircraft throughout internal routes in the country, with a concentration on metro to tier-2 and tier-3 cities, according to the company.

Akasa Air had already revealed its airline code, “QP.” Every airline has a code, such as 6E for Indigo and AI for Air India.

The CFM LEAP B engine will power the Max aircraft, according to the company. “The 737 Max is one of the crucial aspects that will provide Akasa Air a competitive edge in its dynamic home market,” according to the announcement. “It has the lowest seat-mile costs for a single-aisle airplane, as well as high dispatch dependability and an enhanced passenger experience.”

The images were released by the airline’s Twitter account amid fears that the beginning of its services would be delayed.

Last year, the civil aviation ministry issued the mandatory no-objection certificate (NOC) to the Mumbai-based airline, which is a brand of SNV aviation.

According to recent sources, Akasa Air has failed to acquire its first aircraft, which could force the airline to delay its services launch.

The airline must now complete a series of proving flights before receiving an Air Operator Certificate, which is the final regulatory approval required to commence operations.

To meet the need for domestic air travel, Jhunjhunwala has teamed up with Aditya Ghosh, former CEO of IndiGo, and Vinay Dube, former CEO of Jet Airways, to start the carrier.
