INDIA HONG-KONG SIGN REVISED BILATERAL AIR SERVICES AGREEMENT
As per the new agreement, 27 new services for each side will be possible on the Indian Hong Kong route. While the Indian side can operate these 27 services from any point in India, the Hong Kong carriers can operate 10 services to Delhi, 6 services to Mumbai and 11 services altogether to Bangalore, Chennai and Calcutta. Chennai was added as a new point of call during these talks for the Hong Kong side.
An agreement was also reached on the exercise of fifth freedom beyond traffic rights. Out of the 27 services, the carriers of India will be able to operate 14 services to West Coast North America including the cities of Los Angeles, San Francisco and Vancouver. Reciprocally, the Hong Kong carrier can exercise beyond fifth freedom rights through India on 14 services to Europe excluding UK.
What are the additional services expected from HKG i am sure CX will jump on all available before Oasis HKG can even find the aircrafts needed to operate the India routes.
DEL should go double daily to 14
BOM should go 6x non-stop to HKG or daily on BOM-BKK-HKG [they did operate it during open skies last year so they do have rights , they do not have additional rights to DXB though]
So for BOM either 4 current + 6 non-stop OR Current route daily + 3 non-stop
BLR should go 4 x weekly
MAA and CCU should get 3x each
