    If you longpress the notification it should bring up a button for "app info", pressing that should tell you which app it is.

    It's not an application, it's more a function of TouchWiz. You can turn it off, but it can't be deleted.
    Tasker might be able to replicate it, but it will kill your battery

    If you installed air call accept from the play store then you will get update notifications from the Play Store. That's normal

    I agree, third party apps like that trying to replicate features in other smartphones are usually the issue with this kind of things. They either download and install other apps or give you tons of ads
