Our Journey Begins

AIR Kerala, India's first ultra-low-cost carrier (ULCC), is launching soon in Kerala. Born from the vision of UAE entrepreneurs - Afi Ahmed (Chairman) and Ayub Kallada (Vice Chairman) operating under Zettfly Aviation Pvt Ltd. We're gearing up for take-off with our No Objection Certificate (NOC) secured from the Ministry of Civil Aviation to commence operations.

About the Aircraft

AIR Kerala takes pride in its fleet of ATR 72-600 turboprop aircraft, known for their fuel efficiency and market leadership. We're starting strong with three ATR 72-600s, with an ambitious plan to expand to 20 aircraft as we venture into international operations.

Our Commitment

We believe everyone deserves to experience the joy of flight. Recognizing the high airfare burden and frequent flight cancellations faced by Non-Resident Keralites, particularly in the Middle East, we're committed to making travel affordable and reliable. With a significant Keralite population of 2.5 million employed in the Gulf region, AIR Kerala aims to bridge the gap and connect them seamlessly with their homeland.

Our Mission

Our mission is to simplify air travel, making it convenient and budget-friendly for everyone - from expatriates to local residents. We envision a network that transcends destinations, fostering connections between people and empowering local economies. Our focus lies in connecting Kerala's Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities with major hubs, while also fostering strong ties with the large Malayali expat community residing in the Middle East.

Our Vision: A World of Opportunity Takes Off

AIR Kerala envisions to boost the travel and tourism sector in India and across the globe. We're dedicated to creating a wealth of new job opportunities - not just in Kochi, where at least 350 jobs are expected initially, but also with future expansion plans in the UAE. As we strive to take AIR Kerala international, Dubai is prominently positioned as one of our first international destinations.
