Take the discount

From The Hindu: "Paramount Airways is planning to launch its third Madurai-Chennai service with a link to Hyderabad on Friday... The airways would offer 50 per cent discount on full fare to senior citizens and disabled passengers, ... adding that travel for disabled children below 12 years would be free."

PARAMOUNT AIRWAYS PREFERS HINDI SPEAKERS ONLY

When Paramount Airways was introduced, every one might have been exited that for the first time airline based out of Tamil Nadu was started. There was also expectation that the aviation sector in Tamil Nadu would improve. For a long time Bangalore was the only headquarters for all airline. TamilNadu was a desert of aviation enterprise ever since Air Asiatic wound up.

There was also reports of Tamil newspapers inflight abort Paramount, which would have attracted exitement in the emotional TN market.

To tell the truth Paramount Airways is no different from they claim to be. They are just part of the Hindi-speaking herd which are based in Tamil Nadu only in name.

THeir vacancies within Tamil Nadu DO NOT care for knowledge of Tamil but require Hindi. Speaking Tamil is considered shameful in India's aviation industry. Speaking Hindi is actual considered good etiquette. Paramount Airways has also shown this preference.

They barely link 3 of the busiest airports in Tamil Nadu, which others like Air Deccan have already been doing.

The only thing Paramount Airways is unique is that they are the most expensive.

To sum it up, being an expensive airline which at the end of the day you get the usual English and Hindi only treatment, you would rather pick others for less.
