• After Air Pegasus, Air Costa cancels flights

    Air Costa today cancelled all its flights since morning but said that the airline will restart operations tomorrow.

    The airline, in an email statement, said that the cancellation of lights is only for 24 hours due to unresolved issues with aircraft lessor.

    “From Tomorrow (5-08-2016), we will start our operations as scheduled. We are resolving the issues we have with lessors. We are very positive about our operations and future expansions. There are absolutely no issue regarding salaries in Air Costa,” said Kavi Chaurasia, Vice President – marketing for Air Costa said in an email statement.

    Flight cancellation by the Vijaywada-based airline raises concerns over the viability of regional airlines in India, as it follows flight cancellations by Bengaluru-based Air Pegasus recently.

    Air Costa is currently the largest regional airline in the country and operates 24 daily flights with 3 E190’s.

    The airline also has plans to induct new aircraft as it awaits approvals for a PAN India license from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation. Kevan Miller Authentic Jersey
