Things have quietened down in India since the launch of Akasa Air, so we ask the following question: How are they performing?
Looking at data from RadarBox.com, we will see how the airline has performed in its first full-cycle summer period so far.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Akasa Air Is Having A Strong Summer in India…
For June 13-20, Akasa Air operated 119 flights. With the carrier being new, there is not yet a comparison compared to the same period last year as they launched in August.
Below is the last six weeks’ worth of data based on the airline’s movement statistic performance:
|May 2-9||115 movements|
|May 9-16||117 movements|
|May 16-23||119 movements|
|May 23-30||123 movements|
|May 30-June 6||122 movements|
|June 6-13||125 movements|
What we can see from the numbers is that they are on a huge growth path at the moment. For context, by the end of 2022, they were averaging around 65 flights per week.
The New Carrier in India Is Growing Well…
As per data from Planespotters.net, Akasa Air has a fleet currently of 19 Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft, with another 53 on the way between now and 2027 at least.
Back in March 2023, it was revealed from the new carrier in India that another order is going to be made, potentially by the end of the year, spurring up rumors that this could happen at the Paris Air Show.
Looking ahead, it remains clear that Akasa Air has had a good start to its nearly 12-month period since launching operations.
All eyes will be on the carrier to see what the rest of the Summer period looks like.
