Akasa Air’s will continue to focus on connecting metro and non-metro cities in the next one to two years, its founder and Chief Executive Officer Vinay Dube said on Monday. The airline will start operating international flights before December, he added.

In its summer schedule, the airline will operate 751 weekly flights. By the end of June, this number will rise to 925. Dube said: “Our focus is going to be on connecting the metros with tier-2 and tier-3 cities. While we do some metro-to-metro flying, we have got a lot of metro-to-non-metro cities like Bengaluru-Visakhapatnam, Bengaluru-Bhubaneswar, Bengaluru-Guwahati, and Bengaluru-Kochi.”
