Air Pegasus 3rd airline to take off from Bangalore

Here comes a third airline to start from Bangalore after Air Deccan and Kingfisher, which blazed Indian skies before going off the radar in a perennially risky business. Air Pegasus, floated by one of the largest domestic airport ground handling companies, will take to the skies in March, linking the southern cities with ATR turboprop aircraft.

The low-cost carrier — keeping Bangalore as the hub — will fly 25 sectors daily with three 72-seater ATR aircraft initially, before ramping up the fleet to six aircraft by the year-end.

“We hope to offer fares Rs 750-1,000 cheaper than rivals in sectors that we fly,” Air Pegasus chairman & MD Shyson Thomas told TOI.
