    It recently obtained government approval to launch international flights. Apart from Singapore and Colombo, it has approvals for operations to Bangkok and Dubai

    Currently the solely operating private full service carrier in the country, it operates 730 flights a week to 24 cities using a fleet of 23 single-aisle Airbus A320 and six Boeing 737s earlier flown by Jet Airways, India’s oldest private airline which grounded flights in April due to cash problems.

    It plans to add about 60 planes, including 10 Boeing 787 Dreamliners in the next five years through a mix of direct orders, leases and options. The rest will be Airbus A320neos and A321neos.
