Jagson Airlines is an airline based in Delhi, India. It operates scheduled and charter services within India and to Bhutan and Nepal.[1]

History[edit]

The airline was established and started operations in November 1991. It began charter operations with two 18-seat Dornier 228-201 aircraft and later operated regular services from Delhi. It is wholly owned by Jagson International.[1] In 2006 they announced plans to expand their services to 9 cities, using leased Airbus A321-200 aircraft.The airline currently offers only charter service from Delhi and Mumbai.The Avro RJ85 registered VT-JJC has been grounded.VT-JJK another AVRO RJ-85 is atlondon

Because of the trouble the airlines were having with cancelled flights and numerous other problems, Jagson Airlines has not and has no plans to launch a nationwide low-cost airline. They are currently continuing as a regional airline in India. [2]

Jagson Airlines have two MI-172 helicopters and 3 Dornier-228 aircraft's that are a part of their fleet. [3]

Jagson has recently taken deliveries of RJ 80s / BAe 146-200s Avro Regional Jets. They will be starting operations to all their previous routes shortly. Efforts were on to merge the erstwhile MDLR, which operated the same type of aircraft, and form a 5 aircraft airline.
