Is there a lot of revenue between India and China?
AI must have done a lot of research to see if this flight would be good for AI!
As of now it is still more of a political rather than a purely economic decision. However efforts are on to bring the two regional giants closer. The Confederation of Indian Industry which is the foremost body of Indian companies and corporates are organizing a massive promotion in SHA
in OCT03. Meantime India Tourism has announced its decision to open an office in China and their Chinese counterparts are in turn expected to open one in DEL shortly. India and China also recently signed an MoU recently whereby India would be accorded a special status aimed at bringing trade between the two nations closer. While trade exchanges have been limited, the DoT has been trying to organize a series of roadshows showcasing India in various Chinese cities.
China Eastern already operates 2/7 into DEL (even though the loads are still really to pick up).
Does Air India have traffic rights between China and Thailand?
I am given to understand that they do. This looks like a quid-pro-quo as TG
has been granted traffic rights on the highly coveted MAA-DXB
