Mantra Regional Airline, under the aegis of Religare Voyages Ltd, is scheduled for take-off on July 23, with everyday flights connecting the northern sector of India, starting with Amritsar and Chandigarh.

Mantra has two exclusive 17-seater Beechcraft 1900D aircrafts for a comfortable travel experience. Moreover Mantra has a personalised touch and therefore every seat on aircraft is a window-cum-aisle seat.

India, a country with 28 diverse states, hundreds of cities and more than a billion people, has limited airlines serving smaller cities. Mantra aims to put those untapped cities on a map, boost air travel and connectivity by Inter connecting cities out of the radar of most airlines. With further expansion on the cards the plan foresees Jammu and Dharamshala entering its fold shortly. 

Mantra is part of a larger strategy of Religare Voyages, which started 5 years ago with the launch of air charter services. The vision quickly diversified into Travel Management, Training Academy and Aviation Engineering. The company has fleet of 12 aircrafts spanning across the board ranging from the 5-seater turboprops to 17 seater corporate luxury jets.

Mr. Sanjay Godhwani, Group CEO and MD, quotes "better service and connectivity is our primary objective. Every possible detail has been taken into consideration to ensure that our passengers have a wonderful experience with safe and comfortable flight".
