Jetlite is the new name of the former Air Sahara which was bought by Jet Airways in 2007 and made into its wholly owned subsidiary. Making a beginning in 1991 as Sahara Airlines, two Boeing 737-200 aircraft were bought in 1993 paving the way for the first Jet lite flight. The brand name of Sahara Airlines changed to Air Sahara in 2000, though the registered name still remained as Sahara Airlines. After five years of operating the domestic fights and on obtaining the permission to fly international flights, the first overseas flight was operated from Chennai to Colombo only to be discontinued later. Jetlite Airlines now flies only to Kathmandu outside India.
