Originally, the airline had planned to break even in four-five months but has gone slow on its expansion plans.
AirAsia India began service from Bangalore in June and has three planes at present. It will add a fourth plane in next three weeks.
The airline plans to launch Delhi-Bangalore and Delhi-Goa service in its summer schedule and will also introduce red eye flights (wee hours flights).
While airlines in India have flown red eye flights on routes such as Mumbai-Delhi, AirAsia plans to fly red eye flights to Pune, Jaipur and other cities.
“We hope to break even after adding sixth plane. We have started generating positive cash flows already. The positive cash flow is not because of discounts from Bangalore airport, which add up to only 0.75% of our costs. Our flight occupancy is good,” he added. The airline will have a fleet of 13 planes by December 2015.
Initially, the airline had decided not to fly to Delhi and Mumbai because of high costs but changed its plans.
