Initially, the airline was having plans to start operations in different tier 2 and tier 3 cities with Chennai International Airport as its key operating base. However, it changed its base to Bangalore, operating its first flight from Bangalore to Goa. Its secondary hub is located at Indira Gandhi International Airport.
