Unfortunately each new startup is coming with only kick-off funds with no future expansion plans or budget. They only focus on basic requirements to kick-off the airline and then keep on dragging their feet for long & long.
Just like SereneAir which started with 3 aircrafts (1new & 2aged) and still dragging, no international operations and no further fleet expansion. Although I didn't had high hopes from Air Sial since they took significant time to sign agreement for just 3 (probably aged) a320 jets but couple years back there were high hopes from few more airlines coming in action with even better advance jets like afeef Zara, gogreen, liberty etc.

Is there any airline in queue with better investments and may be new jets like 737-MAX or A320 Neo. Obviously they have to perform local operations in the start but one should agree that having improved jets shows an improved, consistent & long term investment along vision.
