The airline got a no-objection certificate from the civil aviation ministry under the UDAN scheme. The airline is now in talks with the DGCA for the airline operator certificate

India could have a new airline by the end of 2023 and its first from and for the northeast. Jettwings Airways on Wednesday announced that under the ‘Ude Desh ka Aam Nagrik’ scheme, the civil aviation ministry gave them a no-objection certificate. The airline is now in talks with the Directorate General of Civil Aviation for the airline operator certificate.

Once Jettwings gets the approval for operations, it will be the first ever airline to operate from the northeast. In an exclusive interview with CNN-News18, the management said it was hopeful of a launch in October. The airline is planning to begin with two aircraft, which will cover 16 routes and then expand, they added.

The management said the initial plan was to connect locations within the northeast and then expand pan-India. It also said Jettwings Airways fleet will have state-of-the-art aircraft with dual-class configuration – business class and premium economy.

On being asked about high airfares as a concern, the management said making money was not a priority for the airline but they wanted to help people realise their dream to fly.
