I seriously doubt that 9W
will be doing any serious flying to ANY of the destinations. From what little I understand of 9W
, their stratrgy is to have atleast a daily or prefereably more flights out of a new station, and every station is linked to atleast 3 other stations on their network. Hardly ANY of the SAARC countries have stations that meet this requirement. Hence my doubts on 9W
operating anything more than namesake operations. CMB is one exception which can be linked to MAA, COK/TRV,BLR, TRZ,DEL and perhaps GOI as well. I see a lot of petential of Jointery between Indian and Sri Lanka Tourism officials, with tourists going down the Indian coast through Goa and Kaerla and then on to Sri Lanka and vice-versa. Hence the scope for traffic.
MAA/TRZ have historic links with Sri Lanka, especially the Northern Areas.
Sahara on the other hand seems to be a different story, designed only to launder ill-gotten wealth. Am i the only one out here who gets negative vibes about them?
