More Flights Between India And France

Thu Feb 24, 2005 11:38 pm

More flights to fly from India to France
NEW DELHI: After virtually opening up the skies with the UK and the USA, India has signed an agreement with France to substantially raise the number of flights between them from 14 to 35 each week.
The French government has also allowed the 'Fifth Freedom' traffic rights to Indian carriers, allowing them to operate to places beyond France.
This would now enable Indian carriers to operate to New York and four more points in the US as also to Toronto and Montreal in Canada after a stopover in France.
India, on its part, designated Bangalore and Hyderabad as additional points of call for French airlines, besides Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai and Chennai.
The French government also agreed to assist Air India to get additional landing slots and terminals at the Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris.

here you go. We will now see more of Indian carriers at CDG, and with fifth freedom they'll be able to hop over the pond.

Somehow, I get the feeling the only ones who are not going to be benefitted are the Indian carriers, given their fleet sizes, and the only ones who will be are the European/US carriers who'll make a killing flying to India.
Never argue with idiots. They will bring you down to their level, and beat you with experience.

Quoting DIJKKIJK (reply 1):

not quite, to me it seems that GOI is paving way for private Indian carriers and govt ones as well. IC, 9W and S2 are planning for North American market in a bit way.
Won't mind if European or NA carriers benefit, afterall progress is not mutually exclusive. With US offering opensky policy, they would need something in return. Its business and nothing else.

Which are the other 4 cities in USA in addition to NYC that Indian carriers will be permitted to fly to via CDG with fifth freedom rights?

Jet Airways and Air Sahara will soo be awarded the right to fly to CDG by Indian Govt.

Boo hoo, that Indian carriers won't gain as much as European carriers on these new flights to and from France.

I could care less. Business is business and if AI cannot compete, so what?
Tort reform now. Throw lawyers in jail later.

Sean, I hope you betted on me writing such a post like last time you did with the MS to BLR/DEL thread topic hehehe  Big grin

Anyways, this a most welcome move indeed initiated by the French and Indian Govt's. Now what needs to be done is for some Indian airline to fly to YYZ via CDG on a 4 weekly basis. Preferably 9W or S2. There is no need to fly out of DEL as AI (via ATQ-BHX) and AC do so directly and indirectly all the EU airlines via their hubs...therefore out of BOM direct one plane one route competition is non existent.

If 9W or S2 fly to YYZ from BOM, they can easily connect pax from their BOM hub to all the major Indian cities south-north-west-east u name it.

There is no need for Indian carriers to fly to YUL...waste of time and money. 9W should look for slots at YYZ which would enable their aircraft to land between 1400-2000 and depart by 2200-2330 for BOM via CDG both ways. Now as to what aircraft to use on this route...a 300 seater MAX i.e. A 343/B 772ER and minimum a B 763ER.

Whats the latest scoop on the India-HKG bilateral talks???

Jet, Sahara to fly to France
NEW DELHI: After London and Singapore, private carriers Jet Airways and Air Sahara could soon get permission to fly to Paris.
The Paris-based carrier can now expand its operations in India to cover Bangalore and Hyderabad too, apart from the four metros.
Indian airlines have also been allowed fifth freedom rights to operate flights to New York and four other points in the US via France. Similar connectivity to Montreal and Toronto in Canada has also been cleared, according to civil aviation ministry sources.
