A reader has written to us saying the delivery of  Air Costa's 3rd Embraer ERJ 170 has delayed plans for launch.Air Costa, we hear, conducted trail runs in Vijayawada airport yesterday. It is awaiting the final NOC for airport slots expected by the of this month. The average fleet age is 4.6 years.
DGCA norms mandate regional carriers to have a minimum of 3 aircraft, while scheduled operators must maintain 5 aircraft on their fleet.
