Air Deccan has 48 seater ATR-42’s in operation in its fleet. In India, this aircraft has already proven to be a highly successful one, both for its efficiency and cost effectiveness. It is presently being used by both, Indian Airlines and Jet Airways.
Air Deccan also has Airbus A-320 - 180 seater aircraft. These new generation fly-by-wire aircraft, with plush leather seats and drop down televisions have brought about low-fare inter-metro connectivity, bringing various destinations on the airline’s air map. These aircraft provide in-flight entertainment for the passengers – a first for any domestic airline in India.
The airline has recently acquired ATR 72 – 500 aircraft. These are 72 seater aircraft with superior engine power and improved interiors for a very comfortable flying experience. The aircraft is very reliable with highly improved productability.
