Zoom Air also plans to start direct flights to Jabalpur, Mumbai, Surat and Tirupati this summer, the airline said on its website.
"From mid-May we are starting our Delhi-Bikaner-Delhi-Jabalpur-Kolkata-Dimapur-Kolkata-Jabalpur-Delhi flight which shall also operate as direct Delhi-Amritsar-Delhi evening services," Mr Dhar said, adding: "From June 10th we start in our third aircraft into western India connecting Delhi- Surat-Mumbai- Tirupati- Mumbai-Surat -Delhi flights."
Zoom Air's entry comes amid strong growth in the market and will further deepen competition, say analysts. The daily flights to Durgapur from Kolkata and Delhi will give "advantage for people from Delhi, Kolkata and Durgapur to have a same day return connectivity", the Zoom Air CEO added.
"As per DGCA requirements, we shall restrict till March 2018 to 5 Aircraft operations only," the Zoom Air chief added.
Commenting on the airline's business plans, he said: "The Airline started as a completely Debt Free organization with Director own funding into the project. But soon (post 5 aircraft), we feel we should be looking at Venture Capitalists and PE funds to assist us in funding and expanding the Business in a phased manner."
