FLY91 Secures Air Operator Permit from DGCA

FLY91, a Goa-based airline, has received its Air Operator Certificate (AOC) from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), paving the way for the commencement of its commercial operations. This achievement marks a significant milestone for the airline, and Manoj Chacko, MD and CEO of FLY91, expressed gratitude for the collaboration, dedication, and planning that led to this accomplishment.

FLY91 is making history as the first Indian airline to use Goa’s Manohar International Airport as its home base. The recent addition of the ATR 72-600 aircraft, leased from Dubai Aerospace Enterprise, further solidifies the airline's readiness for commercial operations.

The allocation of routes under the Regional Connectivity Scheme (RCS) UDAN 5.0 is a strategic move for FLY91 to enhance connectivity across India's tier 2 and tier 3 towns. The designated routes include cities such as Sindhudurg, Jalgaon, Nanded in Maharashtra, and Agatti in Lakshadweep, in addition to popular business and leisure destinations like Bengaluru, Goa, Hyderabad, and Pune.

The commencement of commercial operations by FLY91 is eagerly awaited, as it is expected to contribute significantly to regional connectivity and accessibility, fulfilling a crucial role in India's aviation landscape.

"We are truly delighted to embark on this journey and excited to have been allotted Jalgaon, Sindhudurg, Nanded and Agatti as our initial regional airports for starting our RCS operations," said Manoj Chacko, MD & CEO of FLY91.
