Maybe it will need a lot of help, with either Etihad or Emirates playing a supporting role to help revive Kingfisher. Perhaps Jet Airways could help revive the airline too; I wonder though what Kingfisher's fleet requirements would be to rebuild its lost network.

Etihad just said no to reviving them, Emirates doesn't care and government doesn't really want to let them fly again. They are dead.

The most positive thing that could happen now is that AirAsia is wanting to set up an Airline in India with a local non aviation partner.

The demise of Kingsfisher gives AirAsia India the opportunity to hire highly qualified former Kingfisher staff who deserve to work for a company that actually pays them.

Oh my... So AirAsia will hit its wings in India. Looks like Mr. Fernandes will be really, really pleased to see the Indian aviation market boom over a long period of time! India is one of those markets that really sees an aviation boom that it deserves more service to one of the hottest countries (economically) in the world.

The boom did hit the roof last year, there was seriously decline in domestic air travel in 2012. It's predicted that it could decline even further to -10% since it top last year. But the long term prognosis is of course much better as India's economy will keep on growing even if it's not as fast as some other Asian countries. And some of the issues that are keeping the economy down, like the corruption and bureaucracy will be an issue for an airline like AirAsia that likes it's freedom of doing business.

I see. It looks like the Indian aviation and tourism sectors are hitting some setbacks right now since the airline industry has already exceeded its limits... perhaps it's a good idea to either build new or improve their current airports, enhance their tourism industry, make corruption a thing of the past, or some combination of the three, on top of improved ground transportation options that can compete with Jet Airways and Air India in the domestic market.

Every thing will happen or is already happening except the bold part. Corruption will never ever end in India. In fact its increasing day by day.

Oh really? How bad is it? And how rampant is it at Indian airports?

Etihad will buy a big stake in Jet Airways, part of the deal is that Jet Airways will set up a scissor hub in Abu Dhabi.

Quote:
Etihad Airways to invest US $379 million for a 24 per cent stake in Jet Airways

Etihad Airways of the United Arab Emirates and Jet Airways of India today announced that the UAE national carrier has agreed to subscribe for 27,263,372 new shares in Jet Airways at a price of INR754.74 per share. The value of this equity investment is US$379 million and will result in Etihad Airways holding 24 per cent of the enlarged share capital of Jet Airways.

Etihad Airways' wider overall commitment to Jet Airways includes the injection of US$220 million to create and strengthen a wide-ranging partnership between the two carriers.

As part of this Etihad Airways paid US$70 million to purchase Jet Airways’ three pairs of Heathrow slots through the sale and lease back agreement announced on 27 February 2013. Jet Airways continues to operate flights to London utilising these slots.

An amount of US$150 million will be invested by Etihad Airways by way of a majority equity investment in Jet Airways’ frequent flyer program "Jet Privilege", subject to appropriate regulatory and corporate approvals and final commercial agreements which are expected to be completed within the next six months.

Under the strategic partnership, which will be subject to full regulatory and shareholder approval, the airlines will gradually expand existing operations and introduce new routes between India and Abu Dhabi, providing an ever wider choice to the travelling public. They will combine their network of 140 destinations, with Jet Airways establishing a Gulf gateway in Abu Dhabi and expanding its reach through Etihad Airways’ growing global network.

Passengers from 23 cities in India will benefit from direct connections to international destinations. New flights from Jet Airways’ home hubs and metro airports will further strengthen its current operations from these airports. Jet Airways’ vision continues to be to develop Delhi and Mumbai airports as its primary home hubs and connecting them to Asian, European and other regions.

Jet Airways eyes global footprint via Abu Dhabi

NEW DELHI: This could be the biggest ever global footprint plan firmed up by an Indian carrier. Jet Airways has decided to link 23 Indian cities to numerous points in the US (including a nonstop to San Francisco), Gulf, east Africa and Europe via Abu Dhabi. These flights will be in addition to the nonstops it operates directly from India to the west and Southeast Asia, which are going to be increased also.

The airline, which currently has 100 aircraft in its fleet, has told the government it is in talks with Boeing to place a massive order for Boeing 737 Max and 777s.

According to the plan, Jet will kick-start this expansion by operating its wide-body aircraft like the Boeing 777 and Airbus A-330 from Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai (in first phase) and Hyderabad, Cochin and Trivandrum (in second phase) to Abu Dhabi. Replicating its 'scissor' operation of Brussels on a much larger scale, these aircraft will then fly onwards to US cities like San Francisco, Washington, New York, Newark and Chicago.

In addition to the flights via Abu Dhabi, Jet has sought more flying points in Europe like Paris, Zurich, Dusseldorf, Berlin, Amsterdam, Manchester, Copenhagen and Barcelona to India.

Found these sad pics of an ex-Kingfisher Airbus A-319 which is apparently only 6 years old :

That was in the news at the start of this month.

The worst thing about it that the A319s and A320s where not even owned by Kingfisher.

Kingfisher Airlines’s 15 leased planes may land in scrapyards

NEW DELHI: A majority of the 15 leased planes that still remain on Kingfisher Airlines's (KFA) name may be headed to the scrapyards. While 13 aircraft leased to the grounded airline have been de-registered from the airline's name and will now be flown out of India, lessors of 15 planes have discovered that their Airbus planes are in simply no condition to fly.

"These lessors have discovered that aircraft parts have been so badly cannibalized that it is very difficult to restore the planes. In its last few months of operation (KFA stopped flying from October 1, 2012), the airline kept taking parts from its fleet to keep a handful of planes airworthy. Now the planes have been ravaged beyond repair and they can't fly," said a senior Airports Authority of India (AAI) official.

Meanwhile the airline submitted a revival plan to the Indian civil aviation authority some weeks ago. But it has become clear that Kingfisher has to pay all the open debts to the banks, airports and tax agencies before it will be allowed to fly again. Vijay Mallya might be rich, but I doubt he's willing to pay several billion dollars to safe the airline.
