Indus Airways to fly in October

New Delhi: India will get its 5th full service carrier and 14th scheduled airline as Indus Airways, promoted by liquor baron Kapil Mohan of Mohan Meakins, takes to air in October.
The airline, which will start operation on Delhi-Chandigarh sector, will eventually expand its operations to Mumbai, Bangalore, Goa and Kolkata as well.
"We will be starting operations in a month's time. We have already received two 50-seater aircraft," Indus Airways chairman Kapil Mohan told FE.
The airline had received the no objection certificate (NOC) along with Royal Airways, Inter Globe Aviation, Kingfisher Airlines and Go Airlines in 2005. But, since it didn't start operations within a year, the company had to renew the NOC, industry sources said.
