Akasa Air, India’s fastest-growing airline, recently welcomed two Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft to its growing fleet.

With the two additional airframes, the airline finished 2023 with a fleet of 22 aircraft, including 21 Boeing 737 MAX 8 and one Boeing 737 MAX 8 200, the first of its kind in Asia.

Having reached that size within 17 months of commencing operations, Akasa Air said it had witnessed “unprecedented growth since its inception and has emerged as one of the fastest-growing airlines in the history of civil aviation”.

Vinay Dube, founder and CEO, Akasa Air, said: “Akasa Air’s remarkable growth testifies the sheer promise that India holds as an aviation market.

“The additions to our fleet will help us bolster the strength of our operations as we expand our footprint and foray into international skies in the coming months.

“Each addition to our fleet brings us closer to our purpose of connecting people, places, and cultures, and we hope that as we step into the next phase of growth, we will be able to serve millions of satisfied travellers across the globe.

“We are grateful to our employees and our partners for their unwavering support that catalysed Akasa Air’s unmatched trajectory and look forward to building a world class airline that transcends generations.”
