Once Jettwings Airways secures approval for flight operations, it will become the first airline from the Northeast region to operate nationwide, showcasing the region’s growing prominence in the aviation sector.
Jettwings Airways, a new player in the aviation industry, has received the coveted No Objection Certificate (NOC) to operate Scheduled Commuter Air Transport Services in India as part of the government’s regional connectivity scheme. The airline, headquartered in Guwahati, aims to enhance regional connectivity in the Northeast and eastern regions, offering passengers a convenient travel option under the UDAN Scheme.
With the necessary regulatory approvals in progress and an Air Operator Certificate (AOC) awaited from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), Jettwings Airways plans to introduce a modern fleet consisting of turbofan and turbo-propelled aircraft. The airline is committed to providing premium economy services for regional travel, catering to the demand for reliable and high-quality air travel within the region.
Once Jettwings Airways secures approval for flight operations, it will become the first airline from the Northeast region to operate nationwide, showcasing the region’s growing prominence in the aviation sector. Sanjay Aditya Singh, Co-Founder and CEO of Jettwings Airlines, expressed confidence in their commitment to becoming a sustainable and dependable airline deeply rooted in Northeast India, connecting vital destinations within the region.
Recognizing the need for efficient regional connectivity, Jettwings Airways has assembled a team of experienced aviation professionals to ensure reliable and quick service for passengers. Additionally, the airline plans to introduce a loyalty program to reward frequent flyers and further enhance customer satisfaction.
Sanjive Narain, Chairman of Jettwings Airways, applauded the government’s efforts to improve regional connectivity, noting the positive impact it has had on trade, economic growth, and tourism. He emphasized the unique opportunity provided by the UDAN Scheme to transform connectivity and create new economic avenues in the Northeast region.
Jettwings Airways’ progress comes on the heels of Fly91, another regional carrier, which aims to enhance air connectivity from tier 2 and tier 3 towns across India. Fly91 recently obtained the No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the Ministry of Civil Aviation and is working towards securing an Air Operator’s Permit (AOP) from the DGCA.
While the Indian aviation market is highly competitive and has witnessed the downfall of certain airlines, Jettwings Airways remains optimistic about carving out a niche for itself by offering a unique and innovative travel experience. The airline is in the final stages of readiness and formalities with the DGCA, eagerly awaiting the AOC to commence scheduled commuter airline operations.
As India strives to become a global aviation leader by the end of the decade, Jettwings Airways aims to play a significant role in expanding regional connectivity and contributing to the country’s thriving aviation sector.
