Akasa Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 8

Currently my favourite LCC in India… VOTED ❤️

honestly I don’t really see an different USP of theirs in the heavily competitive market and I haven’t flown with them yet. I don’t think I would even fly with them. Air India and Vistara imo provide better service.

Akasa basically aims to operate in the industry as a low cost airline. They’ve purchased 200+ MAX series aircraft (taking southwest airlines as an inspiration, if I recall correctly) and aim to increase their domestic and international network. Other airlines such as Indigo and Air India can provide tough competition but it’ll be interesting to see them grow and observe their strategy to compete with those already having a larger presence :)

Yes,they seem to be following the single aircraft type model(as most LCC’s),let’s hope they are successful like their competitor,IndiGo😉

It’s not about a different USP….it’s the things that matter. Akasa’s interior and cabin though simple is still refreshing. It’s not the boring drab that we saw on IndiGo and GoAir. Akasa’s crew doesn’t seem as tired and overworked as IndiGo’s, as amazing as those warriors are, they always look tired and affected by work life. Even the menu is such a change in Akasa. Their choice of items and presentation is something I compare with Vistara, Kingfisher and the new Air India

Just my opinion though, flew with Akasa 5 times this year alone.

Akasa’s crew is very friendly compared to Indigo and Air India’s crew, I experienced all of em this year, but Akasa was great with the price it charges

The orange and purple scheme looks pretty distinguishable for Akasa. It reminds me of the colour scheme for Indian Airlines, particularly at the tail section… wonder if that’s intentional in any way?

It is a very cool livery but it would’ve been more cooler if it was on a A320neo 🤪🤪

Haha agreed

Haha I’m sure it’ll fit the NEO pretty nicely as well, though they’ll likely continue operating the MAX fleet for the foreseeable future :)

Certainly nice to see them beginning international/medium haul operations. Are there any plans for their next international destination(s) too? So far I’ve heard they were considering expanding their routes in the Middle East servicing Riyadh and Jeddah along with new routes to Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bangladesh, and possibly Southeast Asia as well.
