New Airline To Serve IND. Announcement 6/23/2010

This story is being featured on the local newspaper website.

http://www.indystar.com/article/2010...rt-to-unveil-new-airline-Wednesday

Any speculation? The story says the airline will offer domestic service but the story also says FAA approval is needed. I have no idea why FAA approval would be needed for domestic service. Does the FAA handle slot restrictions? Does this mean B6 and JFK? Can't imagine AS needing permission to run IND-SEA.

Really doubt it will be AS and yes you are correct...no approval needed. Since Jazz is already there I cannot even guess. Maybe AM announcing a service that will never happen?  

Possibly Porter...but that to me is also a long shot. I know little about IND. Would it be a foreign flagged Cargo carrier?

I was just thinking why would it be B6 since AA has the codeshare with them and they are starting JFK service in November. I doubt it is a foreign flagged cargo carrier. I mean it is possible. Cargolux already serves here. But the story did say domestic service. Then again it wouldn't be the first time the Indianapolis Star has blown an aviation story.

But the article specifically stated domestic service, so if the FAA is getting involved it would lead me to believe it has to deal with an airline that deals with a lot of slot control issues.

Your guess is as good as mine LOL. But I wouldn't be surprised. B6 continues to work on interline agreements for the TATL flights, moved the E190's all back east of the ORD/AUS line and is adding a few planes to the fleet this year, and have to deal with slots at JFK. It could very well be.   

Guess we'll find out tomorrow....

I'm betting the author doesn't have a clue about anything and is entirely wrong about any sort of FAA approvals.

And, besides, JetBlue would not need FAA approval to start JFK-IND. JetBlue has the slots - it can use however it wants. And in the very limited amount of cases - none of which are applicable at JFK - where slot usage is tied to government permission, the DOT, not FAA, is involved.

That's still not to say that it can't be B6. First of all, B6 doesn't have a codeshare with AA. There is only speculation at the moment that it may happen in the near future. And second of all, AA will be flying to JFK twice daily on small RJs, and the flights are going to be aimed at providing onward (international) connections at JFK. So all of this isn't to say that it will be B6, but it isn't to say that it wouldn't be either.

Funny that it's been almost 20 months since the new terminal opened, and only now is IND getting a new carrier (first one since FL in 2005). Should be a good one if it took that long.

My bet is that it's one of these four:
-B6, with service to JFK, BOS, and either Florida or LAX/SFO. This is the most likely, IMO, as IND has been mentioned as a potential B6 city from Day 1, and they were mentioned back in 2004 as a possible E190 city.
-NK, with service to Florida and/or NYC
-VX, with service to LAX and SFO
-AS, with SEA

As for gates, has DL given their 3 ex-NW gates back to the IAA? If so, there would be 6 gates in Concourse A for any airline that is interested (3 ex-DL, 3 common-use domestic/international).

Doesn't that pretty well cover all the possibilities?  

If its AS to SEA I'll gladly eat my words. In the other thread I said there was "no chance" AS would serve IND. It just doesn't seem plausible, but I guess anything can happen.

If B6 does start IND they won't add that much. It would likely be JFK and if we're stretching it BOS.

Good for IND, whatever the service is. Probably a slightly under-served market IMO.

I think that could work, but VX probably has bigger fish to fry than IND. My guess would be B6, but how much service to where is the question. JFK is a given I would guess, but I wouldn't rule out a flight or two to either BOS, SoCal, or Florida either.

I could see B6 serving JFK, BOS, LAX or LGB, SFO, and FLL. With the exception of NYC, all those markets are relatively underserved. BOS has lost a lot of seats to IND since US shut the BOS focus, LAX is only 1 daily on DL, FL has cut frequency on IND-FLL, and SFO lacks any nonstop to IND whatsoever.

After reading the article I am tempted to think the reporter butchered the story. He mentions IND trying to get airlines to offer international service and then turns around and says the airline is expected to offer domestic flights. He also says the FAA declined to release advanced filings for any new routes from Indianapolis they may have received.

Excuse me sir can I get a pound of beef and four t-bone steaks with that? lol. Nicely butchered right? I think newspaper reporters should be required to consult with members of this site before finalizing an aviation story.

I don't know how much money NK lost during the strike (I'm assuming it was a damaging amount) but either way I don't think they are in the position to add new cities/routes right now.

NK is fine. People keep forgetting how incredibly well funded and wealthy Spirit is. Far more well funded and profitable than JetBlue or AirTran. Spirit is launching its next destination - Barranquilla - next month.

Well they were going to do BKG-HUF so its very possible that when the HUF plans were pulled they just decided to move the destination 70 miles east to a bigger population base.

This is wild speculation but what if it were Lynx service to something like EVV where a grant was being used? It may be a federal grant that requires FAA approval and it could technically be considered a new airline. Just a wild guess.
