Akasa Air (QP, Mumbai International) has decided to trim its budget for the 2024-2025 financial year, which starts in April, as part of its cost control measures, the news agency Press Trust of India reported.

The budget reduction could be up to 20% compared to the current financial year. In a statement to the Press Trust of India (PTI) news agency, the company said it is always looking for prudent ways to control its costs without sacrificing any elements of safety, customer experience, employee salaries, or the business's long-term health.

The cuts will be executed a few days after the Indian carrier debuts its international operations, with 4x weekly services connecting Mumbai with Doha Hamad International.
