But Dreamliner services to MAA is not continued thereafter in the present run 788 routes except DEL-FRA.
DEL-DXB upgraded from 1 daily dreamliner to 2 daily(A321 and A320)

I hope similar additions to compensate AI430 dreamliner capacity will be made because its going to be replaced by A319.
A real good news for chennai.
With the induction of B787 into long distance routes like frankfurt and dubai, lots of rejig is happening. The earlier aircraft that operated in those routes ( B777) are moved to other routes. The A330 in MAA-SIN route might also be a result of this rejig.

In a similar vein, I wish soon they start a MAA to USA direct flights using B777.
If not direct, atleast a onestop will be of great benefit for chennai passengers.

Maldivian to start new flights

Quote:
Maldivian, the national airlines of the island nation, would start flying from Chennai and Mumbai this month and from Delhi next year, providing direct connectivity to Male for passengers, primarily tourists and honeymooners.

While the Chennai-Male flight would be launched on November 15, the service from Mumbai would start the next day, the airline Chairman Bandhu Ibrahim Saleem said here today.

Operations to and from Delhi would begin from April or May next year after the airline, which currently has one Airbus A-320 and a few Bombardier Dash-8s, gets its second A- 320, he said.

"Maldivian will receive its second A-320 in March or April next year. This aircraft will be used to operate flights to Delhi," Saleem said, adding the services on Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai sectors would be three each per week.

The airline would get its third A-320 in October, 2013 when "we will look to increase the frequency of flights to the cities where the airline operates," he said, adding it would help in substantial improvement in the carriage of Indian travellers to the Maldives.

Maldivian already operates two Dash-8 flights a day between Thiruvananthapuram and Male, primarily carrying Indian contract labour and patients.

The start of the new flights would also provide an opportunity for transporting goods by air between India and the Maldives, with the A-320 carrying 3-4 tonnes of cargo on each flight.

Seems that they're strengthening the Chennai hub .Looking forward to Europe/US flights(atleast via BOM). I think they can start Chennai -Paris direct flight or Chennai-Mumbai-Paris flight.

U Airlines reaches for the sky

http://www.bangkokpost.com/business/...es-for-the-sky


U Airlines' plan calls for 18 jets _ A320s, A330s and B767-300s plus an A380, all of them leased _ by next year.

The airline plans to offer scheduled domestic service from Bangkok to Chiang Mai and Phuket next month before spreading its coverage to Hat Yai, Krabi, Narathiwat and Roi Et.

Also on its radar screen are flights to 10 Asian countries _ South Korea (Inchon, Muan, Pusan and Daegu), Japan (Hiroshima), India (Chennai and Gaya), Mongolia, China (Nanjing, Chongqing, Shanghai, Ningbo, Chengdu and Yencheng). Indonesia (Jakarta), Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur), Cambodia, the UAE (Dubai) and Turkey (Istanbul).

The airline did not provide timetables for the launch of these services.

Following flight routes must be considered for direct flight from Chennai..

Chennai - Paris.
Now we have to take AF / Srilankan / Emirates flight to go to Paris which are via Delhi/Mumbai/Bng - AF & Colomobo - Srilankan & Dubai - Emirates.

Also Emirates is always full from Chennai to Paris, and from Mumbai emirates is half empty. I could get a seat in emirates from Mumbai for next week travel but not from Chennai.

Chenna - Beijing also.

Why 6.. Why not 7?? This is the only direct flight. AI doesnt know anything beyond BOM n DEL for connectivity to west. Its the gulf carriers which take a huge profit. We are just losing our own money to foreign carriers. Atleast Jet or spicejet can start some direct service

சென்னை-பெங்களூர் எக்ஸ்பிரஸ் சாலை, ரூ.1,815 கோடி சென்னை துறைமுகம்- மதுரவாயல் மேம்பால இணைப்புச் சாலை திட்டம், எண்ணூர்-மணலி சாலை மேம்பாடு ஆகிய திட்டங்களின் முன்னேற்றம் குறித்தும், இந்தப் பணிகளை விரைந்து முடிப்பது குறித்தும் ஜெயலலிதாவுடன் நாயர் விவாதித்தாகத் தெரிகிறது.
மேலும் ஸ்ரீபெரும்புதூரில் புதிய விமான நிலைய கட்டுவது தொடர்பாகவும் இருவரும் ஆலோசனை நடத்தியதாகத் தெரிகிறது.

I would request Our CM to act fast to speed up such projects. She need not worry about who would get the credit, her jingjhas would ensure that all this projects were brain child of her.

There are a lot of anomalies with the winter schedule published by the DGCA. If you want to have real information, use other websites.

9W is suspending MAA-BRU from 13 November. It is not going to change.
