Umesh Vankayalapati

Managing Director,Trujet (Turbo Megha Airways)

Umesh Vankayalapati, along with actor Ram Charan have joined together to set up Turbo Megha Airways, a regional airline under the brand name of Trujet.It launched operations on July 12, 2015 and currently flies to Hyderabad, Tirupati, Rajahmundry, Chennai and Aurangabad.

Umesh said that in the last 10 years, the aviation growth has just scratched the surface and that there is vast potential waiting to be tapped.

“We believe that there are a lot of underserved and/or unserved markets in India. And a quality airline with warmth, care and efficient service is still missing from Indian skies. That is where we believe Trujet fills the gap with its state-of-the-art, efficient aircraft and friendly service,” he said.

Trujet is a scheduled regional carrier based out of Hyderabad with a fleet of two ATR- 72 500 aircraft.
