AirAsia India urged to start operations from Surat

Surat: When Tata Nano arrived in Sanand, the first lot of the cheapest car was delivered in the hometown of the Tatas in Navsari.
With the Tata Group chairman emeritus, Ratan Tata taking over as the chief advisor to the board of AirAsia India, a joint venture between the group, the Malaysian low cost carrier, and Telstra Tradeplace, members of We Want A Working Airport at Surat (WWWAS) have urged leaders of the Parsi community to approach him to commence operations from Surat.
WWWAS members said AirAsia India is expected to be launched in the coming months with aviation minister Ajit Singh recently saying that the final nod will be given as soon as the home ministry gives its security clearance. The company has already begun the recruitment process of the employees on its fleet of aircraft.
