breaking news The time is right for Akasa Air to take advantage of the market recovery, says Boeing India’s Salil Gupte

The year is ending on a good note for Boeing India. Your Max plane is ready to take back the skies after nearly three years of grounding. Boeing also signed a deal with India’s youngest airline Akasa Air for 72 Max aircraft.

Speaking to CNBC-TV18, Salil Gupte, president of Boeing India, said: “We believe that the market here is recovering. They saw it just a few weeks ago, on a Sunday, the footfall of passengers exceeded the equivalent level of 2019, pre-COVID. That is an indicator that this market will recover as strongly as we think, even with the second wave, and therefore a start-up airline like Akasa Air is arriving at an ideal time to take advantage of that recovery. “

On the full recovery of domestic and international travel, he said: “International will take another 18 to 24 months after domestic, but domestic has much more control of individual countries as we have seen in India with a faster recovery. That is why we have always said that the national will be between 18 and 24 months ahead of the international ”.
