Akasa Air has rapidly expanded since commencing operation on August 7th, 2022, and now serves 10 destinations within India. The carrier has not formally declared to operate from Mopa; however, it has been noted that Mopa’s availability of slots could provide easy connections to Bangalore’s Kempegowda International Airport (BLR).
In its phase of rapid expansion, the airline currently has an order with Boeing for 54 737 MAX 200’s and an additional seven 737 MAX 8, welcoming an increase from its 11 737 MAX 8 in operation. Akasa AIr is already recruiting flight instructors and plans to make its presence known in India quickly.

With Vistara already operating at the existing Goa Dabolim Airport to Bangalore, Delhi, and Mumbai, the carrier will undoubtedly look to expand its offering from Mopa.
It is unknown where the airline plans to operate. However, with its absorption into Air India, it would be exciting to see international routes on the cards.
On Vistara’s careers website, 5 roles are listed for the carrier. However, it does not stipulate at which Goa International airport. Available roles are duty managers, customer service, and security executives.
