Ghodawat Enterprises, the parent company of Star Air, sought permission from the Central Government in March 2017 to establish a scheduled passenger airline called Star Air.[3] The airline acquired its first aircraft, an Embraer 145LR, in June 2018.[4] It obtained its Air Operator's Certificate in early January of the following year and announced that it would operate flights under the Central Government's UDAN scheme, which aims to improve regional connectivity within India. Kempegowda International Airport in Bangalore was selected as the base of operations.[5] On 25 January 2019, the airline's first flight departed Bangalore for Hubli. Flights to Tirupati were initiated as well.[6]
