Wings Aviation (India) (Hyderabad Begumpet) is planning to invest INR1.5 billion rupees (USD21.85 million) in its fleet with an eye on launching scheduled regional flights in 2019, Telangana Today has reported.

The passenger charter, air ambulance, general aviation, and training specialist intends to add five unspecified helicopters and two fixed-wing aircraft in the coming months, Chairman and Managing Director Y Prabhakar Reddy has said. The newly added aircraft will be used first for the carrier's charter business and for its medevac wing, Air Aid.

Short of going into any details, Reddy has added that Wings Aviation would be looking at "regional connectivity" once it launches a scheduled airline.

The carrier's training arm, Rajiv Ghandi Aviation Academy, is also planning to expand into Airbus and Boeing narrowbody jet training. It currently trains pilots on a fleet of Cessna Aircraft Company single- and twin-engine aircraft.
