Mumbai, December 13: Air Deccan, India’s first domestic low-cost airline is re-launching its operations this month, debuting again with flight tickets starting at one rupees only. The airline will begin operations with 4 bases at Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and Shillong.

“Some of the initial lucky people will be able to get Rs 1 fares also,” founder GR Gopinath said, adding that the ticket prices will start at about Rs 1,400. Air Deccan had merged with Kingfisher Airlines in 2008, but the carrier owned by Vijay Mallya was grounded due to financial woes and Air Deccan too went down with it.

Gopinath also told “even if you are not able to get your hands on these fares, you will not have to shell out massive amounts as Air Deccan estimates tickets to be priced at about Rs 1,400 for a 40-minute flight.”

The first Air Deccan flight will fly to Mumbai from Nashik, and in the new year, Gopinath plans to expand its reach to cities such as Shimla, Kullu, Agra, Dehradun, Pantnagar and Ludhiana.

Apart from these cities, the carrier will also spread its wings to the eastern zone with two planes in Kolkata that will connect the city with Jamshedpur, Rourkela, Durgapur, Bagdogra, Cooch Behar, and Agartala. The flights from Shillong will connect Imphal, Dimapur, Aizawl and Agartala.
