BJP Rajya Sabha member GVL Narasimha Rao revealed that the airline’s CEO explained that the withdrawal was driven by profitability concerns and limitations of the aircraft. However, he added that the CEO assured him of resuming operations in Vizag within a year. Rao also inquired about the fate of the employees, to which the CEO responded that they would be relocated to the nearest airport where the airline is currently operating.
