In an effort to encourage regional airline connectivity, a new aviation policy in India set for release in January will no longer distinguish commercial airlines from charter services operating under Non Scheduled Operators Permits (s). According to the new guidelines, operators will have the option to convert themselves into Scheduled Commuter Airlines (), allowing them access to tax exemptions enjoyed by the country’s commercial airlines. Those that do not opt for status will now fly under the category called Air Charter Operators.
