So 2x daily to BLR and 1x daily to BOM, MAA, HYD? This effectively doubles daily seat capacity to HBX!

Yes, also none of these are under UDAN if im not wrong. Next IndiGo will begin ATR services to HBX, connecting HBX to MAA,HYD and PNQ(unconfimed).

I'd imagine that would be dependent on who buys AI, since their plans for righting AI including potential codeshares/alliances, long term strategy and fleet commonality would factor into the decision making process. If for example UK buys AI, we might see a shootout between A359ULR and B789 to replace the 77W/L on the North American routes, perhaps even an expansion in terms of a couple of new routes (primarily US centric, as I think Ai+UK would look to codeshare on AC for the Canadian routes) and perhaps increased frequencies (like what we've seen on DEL-SFO). 788s would still be quite usable on the medium-haul markets, again perhaps increasing frequencies to daily for most of the markets that do not already have daily flights. I expect the older 788s to be deployed on trunk routes between metros domestically (one early morning and one late night), but most of the A320 fleet would probably be reconfigured into an IX-type configuration and used in a point-to-point network domestically and connecting to the Middle East and near South East Asia. We'd probably even see increasing numbers of leased 320Neo and 737Max aircraft to build out a competitive LCC network. It's time for IX to become the new IC and let AI be the old AI.

Of course, if 6E comes back and buys AI, we'll probably see a drawdown of the ULH flights to focus more on medium haul to Europe and Far East Asia based on the 788 fleet.

That is the fleet plan for a new owner, not AI. AI(R) will be the only residual part of AI.

Also unlike most well-run airlines, AI owns its 777s, those will be paid off in a year or two. It will be dumb to get rid of those.

No, I am nowhere implying that AAI control will solve everything--just that the problems are not between "government run" and "private run" Indian airports, but with Indian airports in general.

I guess IXG wont work unless its under UDAN scheme. Plus the daily HYD service wasnt doing well.. getting around 40-50 pax at max, during the weekends said a ground staff working for SG. The BLR-PNY flight by SG is working well only coz its under UDAN( as of now).
It wil be interesting to see how HBX will work for SG. Metros yes, it shud do well... but I have no idea about the traffic potential on JLR-HBX route as its not under UDAN scheme. I guess SG trying to take away the slots at HBX before IndiGo starts from Hubli in the next 45 days or so. This shud be interesting :)

Wow! That's unbelievable! My first impression was that this was all under UDAAN.

I dunno why SpiceJet keeps switching between Hubli and Belgaum. Previously IIRC they pulled out from Hubli entirely in favor of Belgaum.

Yes, SG seems to be doing pretty well at IXG... acc to AAI data that is...
Image

Maybe yields dropped? 70s look fine for a non peak season. The IXG folks are not happy at all with SG though..... HBX seems to be getting lot of limelight recently.
Has SG shifted to HBX as to 6E will be starting ops at HBX around the same time? Maybe, maybe not. Only time will tell...

Well, I wonder if due to extreme slot constraints at BOM, is PNQ in anyway acting as a gateway to Mumbai? Pune-Mumbai is almost 4 hours by road and Navi Mumbai is 3 hours ..
Still much better than taking a train.

I was flying SYD-SIN on SQ earlier this week. I wanted to sample the in flight WiFi and bought a pack. The coverage areas map showed that connectivity is available globally except over the Arctic and a select few countries - including India. I was earlier under the impression that only Indian carriers or aircraft flying from/to India are disallowed from offering in flight WiFi. Turns out Indian bureaucracy bars any aircraft from offering in flight WiFi while overflying Indian airspace! How stupid is that.

Thats not actually the case. Its just that Onair - SQ's supplier for certain aircraft doesnt have a license to offer service over India. Airlines using other suppliers do have coverage - LH, UA, LX all definitely work.

SG currently flies this sector with their Q400, with onward flight to CMB and back on the same route.

6E had this sector during their IXM launch time for a month using their 320 as a fill in before they used that aircraft for the HYD-BOM sector.

Glad to see 6E coming back on this sector, this time with 2 ATR services instead of one A320.

No, the website belongs to DIAL which is the Special Purpose Vehicle that operates the DEL airport. GMR holds the majority share in DIAL (65% I think)

25 MPPA is phase 1. Phase 2 will be another 20 mppa extra.. So thats 45MPPA T2 when both the phases will gwt over.
So by April-May 2021 total terminal capacity will be 26.5+25 MPPA= 50MPPA. Which is more than enough. Plus the current Terminal will become Domestic Only terminal & T2 will become an integrated terminal handling both Intl & dom pax. Similar to BOM T2 & DEL T3...
Regarding masterplan, its been revised. There will be a 3rd Terminal(T3) which will be a 15MPPA terminal & located behind TAJ Hotel. This is will be built after T2 gets overcapacity.
Will put up the masterplan at the right time.

According to my sources, 23 A320NEO's are coming into the AI fleet across the next 2 years. Sourced from a Chinese leasing company.

Another 4/5 A320 CEO's are being looked at from a European company - these will be in a charter layout.

More details awaited.

Spicejet doesnt cancel IXG-BLR from MAY 14th. The airline will fly 6x weekly(Ex Tues) on the route with Q400 aircraft. Bookings open!
SG3467 BLR 1415 1535 IXG
SG3468 IXG 1555 1715 BLR

Seems like the airline will Drop Madurai-BLR and continue with IXG-BLR from 14th May

I don't think they will increase capacity by adding gates. DEL T3 has enough of them. They might increase number of immigration and check in counters and increase the area of the departure hall.

Why are Air India's newest B777's (VT ALV/W/X) being used in passenger service?
Weren't they meant for VVIP's?
To most people, the sky is the limit. For those who love aviation, the sky is the home.

One of those three is for commercial use.

Two are waiting for $180M loan. As soon as some bank gives the loan, they will be on their way for VVIP cabin refit.

Seems like the airline will Drop Madurai-BLR and continue with IXG-BLR from 14th May


Spicejet was in the plan to add a morning BLR-IXM-BLR flight on top of their current mid-day flight. Now, the planned morning flight as well as the current flight is gone between Bangalore-Madurai. :roll:

Maybe 6E's entry, that too with a NB, is hitting them hard on this sector.

Re: Which are the most underserved or unserved routes from India?

Hi, this is my first post, so I don't know if I should be posting this on this topic or on India Aviation, but it appears that Air Italy will be launching flights to Mumbai on the 30th of October this year. It weirdly hasn't been announced publicly, but the route is bookable on the website, and upon a wikipedia search, an Italian newspaper has been cited as a source.

25 MPPA is phase 1. Phase 2 will be another 20 mppa extra.. So thats 45MPPA T2 when both the phases will gwt over.
So by April-May 2021 total terminal capacity will be 26.5+25 MPPA= 50MPPA. Which is more than enough. Plus the current Terminal will become Domestic Only terminal & T2 will become an integrated terminal handling both Intl & dom pax. Similar to BOM T2 & DEL T3...
Regarding masterplan, its been revised. There will be a 3rd Terminal(T3) which will be a 15MPPA terminal & located behind TAJ Hotel. This is will be built after T2 gets overcapacity.
Will put up the masterplan at the right time.

So the T4/T5/T6 plans are dead? I had thought that the stupid requirement for transit visas would be lifted when T4 would be constructed as there would be a sterile terminal building for the connecting passengers.
On a related note, does anyone know if it is the Ministry of Defence or the Ministry of Home Affairs that wants to keep transit visas?

It's quite surprising to see them add BOM before DOH. But it's nice to see some new connectivity for Mumbai, especially considering that AF and XT are leaving.

There was never a masterplan for T4, T5, T6. The masterplan for BLR as of now is T1+T2+T3= 80-85 MPPA.
Are u talking about DEL??
