November 2007 data from AAI on Indian Aviation traffic.
http://www.airportsindia.org.in/traffic_news/nov2k7_trafficnews.jsp

The top five international airports are:
1. BOM
2. DEL
3. MAA
4. CIAL
5. BLR

The top five airports in terms of domestic traffic and total traffic(dom and intl.) are:
1. BOM
2. DEL
3. MAA
4. BLR
5. CCU

However, I expect BLR, which has a higher growth rate, to surpass MAA when the new airport opens in April.

Overall, international traffic grew at 18%, domestic grew at 30%, and total traffic grew at 27%. Traffic in Nov. 2007 is 2.5 X the traffic of Nov. 2003.

At the current growth rate, the total traffic will double by 2011 to 200 million passengers annually. As a reference point, the US will have about 750 million passengers by 2011.

News about Jet service to SFO.
http://www.mercurynews.com/breakingnews/ci_7999124?nclick_check=1

Quotes:
Jet Airways, India's largest domestic airline, has reached an agreement to launch service between India and San Francisco International Airport. The airline plans to launch flights between the airport and Mumbai, India's financial center, by way of Shanghai, later this quarter.

"We've been given permission to fly, and we can go now," said Joe Cheung, sales manager at Jet Airway's new Burlingame office. He said papers must first be signed to make it official, and could not yet give details of a launch date from San Francisco airport.

But he noted that the airline is planning an evening departure from San Francisco for the flight to Shanghai and Mumbai.

Thanks for sharing. Witn an evening departure from SFO, does this mean a morning or early afternoon arrival into SFO? Either way, their 773 will probably sit on the ground for a few hours.

I remember reading a report that Jet wasn't happy with the slot timing offered by the PVG airport--It was around 2.00am.

BOM-PVG-SFO is 9301 miles--BOM-PVG is 3151 miles and PVG-SFO is 6150 miles. This would be about 19 hours of flying from SFO to BOM--SFO-PVG 13 hours and PVG-BOM 6 hours--plus 2 hours at PVG, for a total of 21 hours. BOM-PVG-SFO will be around a total of 18 hours.

A possible schedule is as follows:
Departure from SFO around 7:30 pm will get the flight into PVG by 10:30 pm, and into BOM by 6:00 am--all local times.
Departure from BOM around 10:00am will get the flight into PVG by 7:00 pm, and into SFO by 3:00 pm--all local times.

Soon there'll be numerous other ways to get to SFO - including on CX's newly expanded India frequencies. However I think there's enough demand on BOM-PVG-SFO to sustain the route, and wish 9W all the best in making this a success!

OT question...

It seems only Kingfisher and Indian are flying to AGX (Agatti, Lakshadweep). While Kingfisher is flying their ATR-72s, Indian is sending the Dorniers (I am not too sure whether this service of IC is still running).

Why no other airline is showing interest to serve this route even during the just concluded peak tourist season? They all are flying ot Imphals and Aizwals, but not to LD. Is it due to regulations or is AGX is not such a money spinner afterall? IT fares doesn't seem too cheap for the 40 mins hop.

This 'leasing' deal between IT and AI is really interesting. While both of them are competitors in the real terms, they still are co-operating under the strange circumstances.

- AI still has 'considerable influence' on policy making bodies within the Indian govt, and its not in its interest to let IT or any other new airline to fly abroad.
- IT has the brand, money, service credentials and importanly the planes. Clearly it doesn't make sense to fly them domestically with low yield or keep them idle.
- AI has few new planes coming into its kitty in the near future. IT is happy to let them use their planes in IT livrey and crew till then, indirectly promoting IT brand. This could also make AI regulars to ditch AI when IT's time comes.

Suppose one fine day IT gets the nod to fly abroad, can they get all those leased planes back in a scramble? What are the chances of AI acting 'rogue' ?

Well - the word "Peak tourist season" is a bit of an overstatement for Lakshwadeep - given the lack of tourist infrastructure there,. and the unwillingness of India to develop it as a tourist destination. That might be the reason no one else's flying there. And IT probably flies there only because VJM owns a resort (or two) out there, so they have little choice!

That being said, I have no idea of the actual traffic demand or yields on that route.

With the 737 backlog the way it is, this would mean deliveries in 2011-12 or something like that I would guess.

My guess is somebody made them an offer they couldn't refuse...

Seriously, companies in India are facing a big problem with rapid growth - employee retention. At the engineer level, job hopping is very 3-6 months has become common as it is the only way to move up the compensation ladder quickly before the music stops. I've had to cancel a few offshore projects because of this.

AI may set up European hub in Munich. Why can't AI convert the India-Europe-USA flights to India-Europe terminator flights and redeploy the aircrafts to the proposed Munich hub?
http://avindia.blogspot.com/

Quotes:
New Delhi: Air India's long wait for a European hub could end soon. The German city of Munich is emerging as the favourite over other contender cities like Frankfurt and Vienna. A formal announcement is expected in the coming days.
Just like Jet Airways offering scissor connections between India and Europe and North America from its hub in Brussels, AI plans to connect a large number of Indian cities to its European hub.

"If Munich is the final choice for the hub, we will try to launch flights from Mumbai this year itself. Our Star Alliance partner, Lufthansa, has a Delhi-Munich flight and we will first focus on Metros where neither we, nor our partners have a connection to Munich," said a senior official.

AI will continue its direct flights to three European cities even after the hub gets operational --- Paris, London and Frankfurt. However, a severe shortage of planes --- worsened by delay announced by Boeing for the 787 Dreamliner --- will mean that AI will be able to achieve the plan of linking important metros to its hub with a daily flight only in next three to four years.

Deccan opens first hangar in Chennai.
http://www.hindustantimes.com/StoryP...ccan+opens+first+hangar+in+Chennai

Quotes:
Low-cost carrier Air Deccan launched its first fully owned hangar for the maintenance and repair of its fleet at Chennai airport. The Rs 111.5 million hangar stretches over 6,503 sq metres, large enough to hold one Airbus aircraft or two ATR propeller aircraft.

"The Deccan-Kingfisher combine is aggressively building up its infrastructure to ensure better maintenance of its fleet. The hangar facility in Chennai will strengthen our engineering competence and is consistent with expansion plans of the airlines," said GR Gopinath, the airline's executive chairman.

The hangar will be used to provide basic and medium-level maintenance checks and protective storage for Deccan and Kingfisher Airlines aircraft, as well as function as a repair shop and assembly area. It is expected to significantly reduce aircraft downtime for both airlines.

Gopinath said the airline preferred Chennai to Mumbai and New Delhi because of congestion problems at the airports in the two metros. K Ramalingam, chairman, Airports Authority of India, said the hangar "would pave the way" for other airlines to invest in creating maintenance hubs.

No surprise really, given they're up against 9W's 332s on this sector, with fully lie flat J seats and great Y seats. SQ probably had to do it to remain competitive on the sector. I guess it also helps that they've got a good complement of 77Ws now, and have some spare capacity that could be deployed on these sectors.
