“Akasa Air is the first Indian airline to have introduced custom trousers, jackets and comfortable sneakers for its airline in-flight crew. The uniform is inspired by the company’s core beliefs of employee centricity and sustainability,” the statement added.

Jet Airways CEO Sanjiv Kapoor appreciated the sneakers in the crew’s look.
“Reminds me of the casual jeans and kurtis weekend uniform we had introduced at SpiceJet in 2014. Casual and fun works well for LCC (low-cost carriers). Good an Indian LCC will have it now,” he said.
The low-cost airline, backed by billionaire businessman, stock trader and investor Rakesh Jhunjhunwala, is awaiting Air Operator’s Permit.
Akasa Air received a no-objection certificate from the Ministry of Civil Aviation last August for starting flights.
The airline acquired its first aircraft, a Boeing 737 MAX, on June 21.
It has ordered 72 Boeing 737 MAX planes for its fleet, 18 of which are scheduled to be delivered by March 2023.
