India is going to start first subscription-based airline

The airline industry in India is looking forward to a new beginning with a new flying model by Prince Air. The carrier is soon going to be India’s first subscription based airline. Yes, you read that right. By this we mean that you can fly multiple times for a monthly subscription. Kind of like subscribing to an OTT platform.

Prince Air’s Founder, Sanket Raj Singh said that passengers subscribing to this new model will be able to enjoy a privileged experience, far different from the regular check-ins we have to go through at airports. It will be similar to owning your own private jet, an experience that will make you feel special. Singh said that passengers will be required to arrive half an hour before the departure time, and entry will be from a separate gate, unlike the rest of the passengers. You can even arrange a car in order to make a quick exit from the airport.

Tips: Indian Visa processing 

Prince Air’s all new aviation experience should be ready for passengers in about six to eight months. The idea is new, and it would be interesting to see how it fares among Indian travellers. The company has already started to pre-sell memberships.

According to Singh, the airline wants to begin operations when it has 10000 to 12000 members across Mumbai, Delhi, and Bengaluru. According to Singh, membership costs INR 54500 per month. This means that you can fly across Mumbai, Delhi, and Bengaluru as many times as you want for INR 54500. As of now the airline covers New Delhi, Mumbai, and Bengaluru, and later it will connect to cities such as Lucknow, Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Hyderabad, Chennai, Pune, and Amritsar.
