    Civil Aviation Minister Gajapathi Raju attended a function in which the airline was handed over the flying permission. The minister was quoted as saying, "We welcome the new airline. It plans to operate some shuttle services during the forthcoming Maha Pushkarna at Godavari before the commencement of actual operations."
