AirAsia India set to miss its December take-off deadline

Low-cost carrier AirAsia might have to defer the launch of its domestic operations to early 2014, as the process to procure an operating permit would take three months. According to a Business Standard report, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) last month issued an air operator certification manual, which stipulates that an application for permit must be filed at least 90 days before the date of intended launch of operations. The report added that the 90-day period is only an indicative time limit and the actual process can take even longer if formalities have not been completed.
