Regional carrier Fly91 revealed its first look on Friday along with the launch of its brand logo and tagline- "Bharat Unbound", the Economic Times (ET) reported.
Fly91 is a regional carrier that aims to enhance air connectivity from tier 2 and tier 3 towns across India. The new airline is particularly eyeing the under-served and unserved airports where the VAT rates on fuel are lower. The airline said it aims to connect every Indian to their dreams, passions, aspirations, adventures and beyond, according to media reports.
The new airline plans to hit the Indian skies by this winter in the October-December quarter. The newly overhauled company website has also started expecting job applications for several roles including pilots, cabin crew, engineering, airport operations, and in the corporate department.
The soon-to-be-launched airline is steered by top aviation veterans like Harsha Raghavan, the former Fairfax India head and Manoj Chaco who has served as Vice-president of now-defunct Kingfisher Airlines.
According to Fly91 its logo which depicts a flying butterfly is a symbol of India's mesmerising beauty and vibrant diversity.
The new Goa airport built by GMR will serve as its main base.
