TruJet to expand fleet, increase number of flights
Regional carrier TruJet, which has bagged 18 routes under the Centre UDAN scheme, aims to raise its fleet size to up to eight aircraft by March 2018 besides increasing the number of flights to nearly 50 per day by this year end, a top company official said.
