CAAC unveils slots allocation/airline distribution for Beijing’s upcoming PEK/ZBAD dual-hub system
https://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1412139

Seeing the above thread on how the Aviation authority of China plans to split airlines between the upcoming new Beijing Daxing airport and the older Beijing Capital Airport and makes it seem pretty fair, it struck me if such a system should or will be used when the new Navi Mumbai airport opens up. If not , airlines will have dual flights at both the old and new Mumbai airports. But knowing a certain airline with a large aircraft order, would throw capacity as fast as possible at the new airport if allowed to operate from both the city airports, and try to dominate and "own" the new airport through capacity and price dumping (like it does at BLR). And such could also be the case at the upcoming new Delhi airport at Jewar which will serve as the second airport for NCR. So wouldn't it be fair if India's Civil Aviation authority or AAI or whoever is responsible in deciding how airlines can operate with a dual airport system in a city, follow the CAAC method and ask airlines to pick one only. (?) Or themselves decide and split the airlines as it deems fit. Rather than giving airlines the choice where they can operate from. This would also free up space at CSIA in future and allow the main airline having it's hub there (subject to if it survives) to expand further.


The blue big bully is not very popular around here :)


They are the second largest airline out of the city, no metric shows they aren't popular if it weren't for the airport being slot constrained.

Interesting pictures
Will this allow BLR to even have terminal 3 facing the second runway ?

^^ Yes, there will be a T3 which as of now has been planned BEHIND TAJ hotel (which is also undergoing expansion). AFAIK T3 is ~15-20MPPA terminal.

From the A.Net LOT Polish thread earlier today, Jan 15th

<<FYI, WAW-DEL is now oficially announced by Lot and available for booking. First flight is scheduled for 17 Sep 2019. Frequency is 5x a week.>>

IGI’s Wiki page also reflects this. Another one-stop route predominantly for traffic to Western Europe and North America?

LO has also announced additional flights and seats to North America, I am sure they are targeting Indian travellers as well. LO is generally quite affordable and they offer and ok product.

So well according to Fernandez the new Bombay airport would be inaugurated by Late 2019 or Early 2020. Well according to me it won't be completed anytime before 2022.

Well, look at Istanbul! It would have been fully opened on the 95th Turkish Republic Day (29 October) but it is running 5 months late now.

Here's the LO schedule to DEL:

LO072 DEL1115 – 1545WAW 788 x25

How does this schedule compare to its competitors?

I'm not aware of what LOT's North American departure bank looks like in terms of departing WAW - but most international airlines (East & West bound) depart DEL between 0000 and 0600. Flights with a possibility of onward EU/NA connection(s) around this time include UA, OZ, AC, AF, SU, AI, 9W, LH, LX, KU, CA, KL, BA, QR, AZ, EK, EY, IG, TK.

Around the time LO departs there's just a handful including Ethiopian (if you want to count that as a EU/NA connector), Emirates, Finnair, the 11am British Airways, Jet Airways and Virgin Atlantic (both towards 1300 and after, but offer connections).

The 22.00 departure is typical of their overnight flights which connect from their European network. Maybe North America isn't their top priority?
