Jagson Airlines (JGN) of India is to buy or lease up to 19 A320 family airplanes over the next three years. The airline will lease six A320s and acquire an additional 13 from Airbus, transforming it from a regional turboprop operator to a national carrier serving nine major Indian cities by year end. Jagson Airlines (JGN) became India's first private airline in 1992 and focuses on tourist destinations in the states of Himachal Pradesh and Rajasthan. Recently, it also started serving business destinations. Based in Delhi, it operates three 20-seat Do-228s.

March 2007: Has now abandoned plans to launch a scheduled country-wide, low cost carrier (LCC) and will instead focus on developing its regional operations. It considers a national network unviable.
