Skift Take

Considering the number of expat Keralites everywhere in the world, and then add the big tourism circuit in the state, the airline could be a big hit if managed well as a state airline.

Given the large number of Keralites who would offer it patronage, and given also the large number of them regularly fleeced by airlines, it is surprising that this idea took so long reaching fruition. The proposal for the state’s own airline is now moving in the right direction, Excise Minister K. Babu said.

Besides a large number of tourists who travel to Kerala, which the state’s tourism department advertises as “God’s own country,” there are also a large number of people from the state working in other parts of the country and the world, especially the Middle East.
