Jagson Airlines to expand

Special Correspondent

To operate services to nine cities by year-end

NEW DELHI: Yet another private carrier, Jagson Airlines, has announced plans to expand into a low-cost domestic airline. The feeder airline, which flies to select destinations in Himachal Pradesh, Uttaranchal and Rajasthan, has firmed up plans to acquire 19 Airbus aircraft.

By the year-end the airline will operate to nine cities, the first flight in the Delhi-Bangalore sector in April or May. "We will keep the costs low and pass on the benefits to the passenger and our prices will be competitive," Jagson president and CEO Uttam Kumaar Bose told reporters here on Thursday.

For initial operations, six Airbus aircraft would be taken on dry lease and flights launched to cover Delhi, Patna, Bangalore, Mumbai, Kolkata, Guwahati, Jaipur, Dibrugarh and Goa. In the second phase, services would be expanded to Lucknow, Kochi and Hyderabad.

The 19 aircraft would be A-321-200s in a two economy class configuration.
