Just thought we see the massive expansion 9W has put forth to the Gulf from India.

BOM - KWI started at the onset of summer 09
BOM - DXB second daily flight started in April
MAA - DXB April
BOM - JED 14th July 2009 (delayed by a month)
BOM - RUH delayed and will start on 6th August
HYD - DXB to start on 16th August
COK - SHJ to start on 1st september

All operations by B737-800 ( having PTVs/AVOD).

Apart from the Gulf 9W also started second daily BOM - BKK.

9W got permission from the Indian govt. to fly to the Gulf from 1st Jan 2008. They started 15 routes in 2008 of which 4 have been terminated.

Nice - I like to see 9W not shying away from competing head-to-head with EK.

Interesting. Thanks for the update, Ojas

Although 9W may eat away at EK's share of the O&D market, it cannot compete in terms of the network EK offers beyond (in that case, 9W cannot offer many UAE-Far East connections the way EK has India-Europe/North America).

Interesting that the COK flight will go to SHJ. Why doesn't it simply go to DXB?

Query, do 9W and EK code share? I'm sure they compete for DXB O&D, but what about connections? Although I've heard some of the EK subcontinent flights currently have weak yields... Note, I'm asking. As the information I currently have doesn't quite add up...

The codeshare is "unilateral" on DXB-India: customers who book through EK can fly on 9W metal, but not vice versa. It does not include flights beyond DXB-India routes. They also have a reciprocal FF agreeement which does cover routes globally.

Rgds.

EK also has a FF agreement which they signed earlier last year with Kingfisher, but no codesharing there.

Well you never know. They may in the future fly to both places.

The timings of borh Hyd-Dxb and Cok-Shj suggest its likely there will be follow on Hyd-Gulf and Cok-Gulf routes once permissions and rights are in place - maybe to Saudi ?

Not necessarily, the B738 can rotate something like DEL-HYD-DXB-HYD-DEL.

However earlier in a press release, 9W has committed to start BOM/TRV/CCJ - SHJ and IXE/TRV/COK-DXB. So something like that can come up as well.

for the latter to happen however you would look at W routings of HYD-DXB-IXE-DXB-HYD and not turnaround services
