The airline was always on time and very convenient for travelling. The airports were all upto the mark with all facilities and maintained very well. The shops and the cafes were a bit costly but affordable ones which kept us busy. The taxis and other modes of transport were available outside the airport. The journey was awesome one in which we felt very comfortable with the service provided.

It was a new experience as I was travelling by air for the first time. Travelled to Pune as a team. We were a group of 11 members in the same flight so we all enjoyed the travel time. Pilot explained the flight speed and flying height and location was nice. Flight services and everything was good. Overall it was nice.
