The Federation of Indian Airlines had challenged the aviation regulator's decision this week to issue an operating permit to AirAsia India.

After a nine-month-long wait, new airlines AirAsia India was on Wednesday granted AOP or flying licence by the DGCA. The airline has promised to offer low and competitive airfares.

The Tata Group and investment firm Telestra Tradeplace are AirAsia's partners in the joint venture.

The AirAsia India has not yet given a date for its launch, but said that it would announce its domestic routes in the coming weeks.
