Air India Express to increase flights in 2025

Budget airline Air India Express is planning to increase its flight operations by 40 per cent next year, thanks to the addition of new aircraft to its fleet.

The primary focus will be on strengthening domestic routes, although the airline will not add many new destinations – it will, however, launch flights to Nepal, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka during the upcoming summer season.

There may also be some growth in the international network.

The airline currently operates 350 daily flights with 69 planes and has an additional 1,300 pilots, including those from the soon-to-be-merged AirAsia India.

Air India Express is on track to complete its acquisition of 50 Boeing 737 Max planes by December this year, with over a dozen already inducted.

Additionally, the merger with AirAsia India is expected to be finalised by 2Q2025, bringing AirAsia India’s fleet, including its three A320neo planes, under Air India Express’s operations.
