IndiGo to add new flights between Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi using its eleventh aircraft.
|Quoting Nimish (Reply 4):|
I think the a/c is also being used for a COK-HYD-DEL routing. I wish that 6E had chosen to offer a non-stop COK-DEL - that sector is still very expensive as there are not too many offering a non-stop on that route.
In view of increasing tourist exchange between China and India, Air China on Friday said it will start operating daily flights between Beijing and New Delhi starting October 31. Presently it has only four flights a week between the two cities.
The state flag carrier will be joined by another international carrier, China Southern, which is expected to start three flights a week to Delhi from Guangzhou (erstwhile Canton). Guangzhou, home to an over 3500-strong Indian community, is a throbbing business hub in south China.

With so negligible a margin for error, an aircraft can easily overshoot the slippery strip of tarmac. Even the country's so-called long runways aren't up to scratch. Says an A320 check pilot,"In the Emirates Operations Manual, the example of a bad runway is Mumbai airport runway 27."
Singapore Airlines too does not land on Mumbai airport's runway 14 as it has been classified 'sub-standard' because of the air-traffic control tower standing a few metres away. "Runway 14 may be 9,596 feet but it has a displaced threshold, which means only 7,200 feet are available for landing. To make things worse, the end of the runway is waterlogged and slippery," says a senior Boeing 747 commander.

Etihad will commence flying the A320 from September 2007 with young leased aircraft from Air Malta.
6 to 8 brand new A320s should start arriving from early next year. These aircraft were originally ordered by Kingfisher but Etihad have more or less secured these early delivery slots in exchange for Kingfisher receiving their 4 early A380s.

How do the DEL rwys 10/28 and 9/27 compare to BOM regarding their standard?? Smile
Also, has the concstruction on the 3rd rwy begun at DEL??? i believe it will be 10R/28L and the existing one will become 10L/28R?? Is that correct??
Isn't rwy 9/27 going to be re-aligned so that it can become a third parallel rwy???
|Quoting Karan69 (Reply 26):|
Thats because they can also perhaps take in some of the A320 slots of DN, smart move indeed.
|Quoting Nimish (Reply 24):|
Interesting Big grin IT is delaying their 320 deliveries to get the 380s sooner!!!
|Quoting Karan69 (Reply 28):|
Not all of them, IIRC they sold only 8-9 of them, plus KF has more than enough NBs coming in over the years, their latest ordered A320s is scheduled for delivery in 2012 onwards
|Quoting Cricket (Reply 29):|
According to this all 60 A32X rights were sold back then. I don't know the status of this under new mgmt!
|Quoting Karan69 (Reply 31):|
The deal gives them the right to take the aircraft as per slots but incase they were to liquidate or not take the aircrafts, then and only then will the UK and German banks have the rights to market these aircrafts.
Qatar Airways plans to start daily flights to Nagpur and Ahmedabad by the year end. Qatar is one of several airlines which have strengthened air network with India.
The daily service to the two cities will mark the seventh and eighth Indian destinations for the Airways, Akbar Al Baker, Chief Executive of Qatar Airways was quoted as saying by the Gulf News.
The merger between Indian Airlines and Air-India, due in August, has hit a roadblock with the major IA unions opposing it on grounds that the government has been unable to resolve key issues -- lack of parity in career progression and salary with A-I employees and arrears of over Rs 800 crore from 1997. The unions have threatened a strike if these issues are not settled before the merger deadline.

Jet Airways breaks March's 91.5% load factor on LHR-Amritsar
When the UK's CAA released traffic figures for March 2007, I thought 91.5% load factor on 9W's LHR-ATQ route was fantastic. But it seems Jet has outperformed itself once again! June saw a record load factor of:
I think this is brilliant! Lets hope with new A330s coming into the fleet, the flight can go back to six weekly!

Are they currently using a 777 on this route?
