Sources reported on Thursday that Akasa Air, which is struggling with pilot troubles, has canceled certain flights from Bengaluru, despite the airline’s claim that it has rationalized the network to ensure high operational reliability. The airline’s hub is in Bengaluru, and it runs about 700 flights every day.
Several flights from Bengaluru have reportedly been canceled by the airline, which has been operating for more than a year. However, it was not possible to determine specifics right away.
“As we have already said, we were obliged to cancel a number of flights in the period of July to August 2023 when a small group of pilots abdicated their responsibilities and left the organization without completing their required contractual notice period.
A spokeswoman for Akasa Air released a statement saying, “Since then, we have rationalized our network to ensure that we offer our customers the best levels of operational reliability, as we did for the first 11 months of our operation.
16 cities are served by the airline. With its cutting-edge pilot planning and training programs, the airline is “now squarely back in growth mode,” the spokesperson claimed.
The spokesperson added, adding that the carrier is financially sound, “We look forward to opening up several domestic and international destinations within the fiscal year 2023–24 as we take delivery of several additional aircraft in the remaining months of this fiscal year.”
