Air Costa (Vijayawada, India) today (October 14) launches scheduled passenger flights on regional routes in India.

In June 2013 Embraer announced the new carrier has acquired three E-Jets for launch of its scheduled regional airline service in India. Two Embraer 170s were acquired from ECC Leasing, Embraer’s wholly-owned subsidiary in order to commence operations today. The new carrier has also purchased one new Embraer 190 from Embraer.

“Air Costa has chosen E-Jets for their efficiency and reliability. Our plan is to link underserved markets in India with more direct flights,” said Captain Babu, CEO of Air Costa. “The E170 and E190 are ideal in size and range. We can add frequencies and routes without adding too much capacity, thus serving places with seasonal demand, as well as key secondary and tertiary business centers.”

Air Costa will initially connect cities in southern India such as Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad and Vijayawada, as well as key secondary cities in the north and northwest of the country.
