Malaysian low-cost carrier looks to kick start its operations in India from September. Earlier this month, Air Asia received formal approval from the Foreign Investment Promotion Board to launch an airline in the country in association with the Tatas, paving the way for the companies to move the sectoral regulator DGCA for an air operator licence.

The company also threatened Indian rivals including IndiGo and SpiceJet which operate some flights internationally when it announced 'zero rupee' fares to Indian cities on international routes within Asia.

Earlier Firstpost argued why Air Asia's entry is a positive for India's turbulent aviation sector.

The carrier also plans to hire pilots and first officers.
