AI Express to increase flights, add 3 Indian cities in 2006. Link:
http://www.zeenews.com/znnew/articles.asp?aid=291761&ssid=53&sid=BUS

Quotes:
Low-cost public sector carrier Air India Express, which completed one year of operations to the Gulf, today said it will expand its network to three more Indian cities. With this, Air India Express will cater to eight destinations in the country.

The Airline, a wholly-owned Air India subsidiary, also intends to increase its flights from 42 to 73 in a week by the end of this year. The airline has experienced a high seat factor of over 90 per cent, generally throughout its first year of operation, he said.

The carrier, which now flies from Thiruvananthapuram, Kochi, Kozhikode, Mumbai and Delhi, would add Trichy, Mangalore and Amritsar to its list of Indian cities.

I hope the state government in Karnataka is able to staff the immigration counters at IXE soon. Without this, AIX cannot commence operations.

Runway gives landing blues

From: http://www.dnaindia.com/report.asp?NewsID=1026719&CatID=1

Quote:
Passengers from Bangalore, Hyderabad and Kolkata were kept hovering above Mumbai airport for an hour due to problems on the runway on Friday afternoon.

It also led to around 15 flights of Jet Airways, Indian, Air Deccan and Spice Jet being delayed, leaving passengers stranded on the ground.

"A circle of depression (damage due to broken tar) was found at the beginning point (aircraft touch-down spot) on the runway 14-side (secondary runway), which led to the closure for 30 minutes," airport sources said.

The main runway, 9-27, was closed from 1.15 pm to 1.45 pm due to refurbishment of the Instrument Landing System; during the closure period, the secondary runway was opened to avoid delays, Air Traffic Control sources added.

After detecting the depression on the runway, which was caused by a sharp turn of an aircraft on secondary runway 14-side, the main runway was opened again after sometime.

But the runway 9-side faced tail winds- the wind was in the direction of landings( which makes aircraft landing difficult and risky during landing). This is said to be the second such incident in past two months.

However, Mumbai Airport Director, RJ Treasuriwala, refused to comment on the matter.

Jet Airways pilot academy, cargo airline coming. New flights to Zurich, Los Angeles, Munich. Jet Airways claimed that as of now, it commands 24% marketshare in the Mumbai-London route. Link:
http://www.talkingtarmac.com/launch/jet-cargo.asp

Quotes:
Jet Airways is planning to launch a cargo airline within the next two years. It will be headed by a former UPS official. Jet Airways hopes to tap the rising demand for freight transport in the country with the cargo airline. Recently, the company's outgoing COO Peter Luethi had said that the airline last year 67% of its revenues from cargo. The airline also has plans to start a pilot training academy.

Jet Airways also plans to tap the demand for increasing India-bound tourist travel with the launch of new overseas flights to Zurich, Los Angeles and Munich. However, the company may still have a few hurdles to clear, with permission for US flights stuck in the corridors of power. It is also planning direct Amritsar-Birmingham and Amritsar-London flights in 2 months.

The airline is also in talks to tie up with foreign carriers like Air New Zealand and Qantas, said Jet Airways board member Vic Dungca.

Jet it has recorded a 71% rise in its net profit in the last quarter. The profit for the period was Rs 227.12 crore, as against to Rs 133 crore in the corresponding previous quarter. Total income during the quarter rose to Rs 1,969.56 crore from the previous Rs 1,222.61 crore. Jet Airways is planning to raise more resources to finance expansion. It will come out with a $300 follow-on equity issue soon, along with an FCCB issue for $800 million.

Quotes:
New Zealand and India are due to sign a landmark agreement on Tuesday, allowing New Zealand airlines to fly to India daily. The Economic Development Minister Trevor Mallard says the two countries have had an air services pact since 1996, but arrangements for airline operations were never finalised.

A New Zealand airline will be able to operate seven aircraft services a week to Mumbai via Australia or Singapore. They would also be able to code share with an Indian partner airline to five Indian cities as often as they wished.

Cathay Pacific bullish on prospects in India

Quote:

The Hong Kong-based airline, Cathay Pacific, is bullish about the prospects in the Indian air passenger and cargo markets.

"India is a key focus area for the airline. Where cargo is concerned India accounts for 35 per cent of the airline's revenue and it is growing. As the number of aircraft in the fleet grows, we would consider launching more cargo flights here," the airline's Bahrain-based General Manager, West Asia, India and Africa, Mr Tom Wright, said.

The airline is to start operating a twice-a-week freighter flight on the Hong Kong-Mumbai-Chennai-Hong Kong sector with a Boeing 747-200 aircraft from June 2 this year.

At present, the airline freighter service to India includes a three-times-a-week flight to Mumbai that continues to Dubai and Paris and then returns to Hong Kong through Dubai.

Mallya may buy foreign airline. Part of plan to fly to US. Link:
http://www.talkingtarmac.com/others/kingfisher-acquisition.asp

Quotes:
Vijay Mallya, chairman and MD of Kingfisher Airlines has confirmed that "acquiring an international airline" is very much in his current plans. According to a Times of India report, Mallya is in "advanced negotiations" for this acquisition, which will allow the carrier to operate flights into India. Mallya has repeatedly shown interest in operation flights in the India-US sector.

Mallya, who is interested in controlling the non-stop Bangalore-San Francisco and Mumbai-New York routes, said, according to the report, "I have a plan in mind and acquiring an international airline is part of that plan. I will make a formal announcement once the deal is signed." The deal follows in the wake of Mallya's aborted attempt at acquiring rival Air Sahara.

According to a source cited in the report, "The move aims at cruising past Indian regulations that restrict international flights only to airlines that have a five-year domestic flight track record." The indications are, therefore, that the new acquisition will involve an airline that is in some difficulty in the International market. According to an analyst cited in the report, "A lot of new American carriers are facing trouble and airlines are fast cruising into bankruptcy….This is the ideal opportunity to acquire one of the smaller airlines."

The merged entity America West/US Airways is out of question as its market capitalization is around $3.6 billion. I am not sure if there is anything else with decent international operations. I figure he needs to buy an airline for its operating licence and then apply for routes to India.

New BLR Airport - Plane sailing: 20% work complete

From: http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/articleshow/1511761.cms

Quote:
DEVANAHALLI (BANGALORE RURAL): The road to the airport is the first indication that Bangalore's 10-year-old dream is taking concrete shape: The access road from the NH-4 to the Bangalore international airport site has been levelled and the first layer of granular sub-base (GSB) prior to asphalting has been laid.

As things stand at the end of 10 months, about 20% of the airport construction work is complete, with work ahead of schedule in several aspects. The S shape of the runway has been formed, GSB has been laid on about 2.5 km of the 4 km runway.

And there is a sense of burning urgency among the 2,000 workmen on site to get this protective layer finished on all surfaces - runway, taxiway, two access roads and an air side road before monsoon hits by June. "We are doing all that is possible.

If the GSB is not done, and rains come down like they did last October, the mud that has been levelled will break or wash away and we will have to do everything again," Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL) chief projects officer Sivaramakrishnan S Iyer said.

The runway, taxiway and apron area, all cleared and levelled, stand on the exact spot where the erstwhile Arasinakunte village was located. Workmen are filling in an open well - the last visible reminder of that village barely an year ago.

Eleven buildings are in various stages. The contentious terminal building - that the Union civil aviation minister Praful Patel wants expanded - is about 400 metres from the runway.

The basement of this sprawling building has been completed, the ground floor is being laid. Engineering for the redesign of this building that will expand its capacity to handle 11.4 million passengers per year instead of 4.5 million is still going on.

But work on the terminal building will not be hampered: The final design has to reach the construction site latest by February 2007, which is nine months away.

The administrative block, which was the first building to be taken up, is structurally complete with two floors. Plastering work and grooves for electricity and plumbing is taking place.

The Air Traffic Control tower, that will be a dizzying 65 metres high (213.42 feet) is being built at the rate of 2.5 metres every 10 days using a selfclimbing crane.

Even if he wanted to buy a majority stake in a US airline, it won�t be that easy. Even though his children are US citizens doesn�t mean he can just walk in and buy a stake in an airline (controlling stake or a minority), not to mention start flights to India.
This is all talk, I don�t see it happening.

Delhi, Mumbai airports in pvt hands
Our Bureau

New Delhi, May 2

In a move that would give a boost to the Government plans for modernising Delhi and Mumbai airports, the management of the two metro airports pass into private sector hands from midnight tonight. "The Operations, Management, Development Agreement, which is considered as the mother agreement for development of the two airports is now effective.

From midnight tonight the GMR group gets custody of Delhi airport, while Mumbai airport will be with GVK group," sources connected with the process said. Apart from undertaking mandated capital expenditure and fulfilling what has been promised at the time of submitting the bids to the Government, the two private sector companies would now be required to draw up a master plan for making the metro airports into world-class entities.



While I am sincerely hoping DEL and BOM get long overdue expansion and upgrades to reflect the current and future traffic levels and also gain due recognition along with HYD, BLR & MAA as major Indian gateways.

What is totally beyond me is that GOI is completing the transaction and locking the 30 or so yrs lease before getting a detailed description of the upgrades and investment the two companies are going to agree to for DEL & BOM respectively.

Is it just me who feels the preferred approach would have been to lock in the investment and upgrade agreements and then transfer the two Airports to the respective companies. It would be nice to hear opinions of other a.net members...

Regards,
VT-DEN
