Not yet, AAI has received bids for BOM and DEL airports! It'll take it's own time.

Azerbaijan Airlines Starts Delhi-Baku-Delhi Flights

NEW DELHI, July 19 Asia Pulse - Azerbaijan Airlines, the national carrier of the Central Asian republic, announced its entry into the Indian aviation sector with the launch of twice-a-week direct service between Delhi and Baku.

"Initially we will operate on the Delhi-Baku-Delhi route offering connections to London and Moscow," Azerbaijan Airlines Country Representative Khanlar Karimov told reporters here.

While the Delhi-Baku round trip will cost around US$550 (approx Rs 24,000), the airlines is offering a cheaper fare for a round trip to London from Delhi via Baku at Rs 20,000.

"By November, we will operate additional two flights from Delhi to Baku," Karimov said, adding the airlines was also looking at connecting Mumbai and Amritsar in a year's time.

The airlines will be utilising its Airbus A320, A319 and Boeing 757 jets for the Indian operations.

Although the airlines has got permision from the Civil Aviation ministry for operating seven flights a week, Karimov said it would take time for it to fully utilise the quota.

He said the airlines was in the process of negotiations with Indian carriers, including Jet Airways, Indian Airlines and Spice Jet for mutual ticket acceptance agreements to cover the Indian subcontinent.

Lufthansa Increases Flights From India, Introduces New Cuisine

NEW DELHI, July 20 Asia Pulse - Leading European carrier Lufthansa announced an increase in its weekly services from India and introduction of new cuisine on long haul flights to cater to the growing number of Indian travellers.

Designating noted Indian chef Hemant Oberoi, the Chef de Cuisine of Taj Hotel in Mumbai, as the 'Star Chef', Lufthansa's Director (South Asia) Werner Heesen said the number of Indian passengers to Germany had grown considerably in the recent past with the recently liberalised bilateral air traffic agreement.

Lufthansa would add six services this October end to its 32 flights a week at present connecting Frankfurt with Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad, and Munich with Delhi, he said.

Observing that travellers from different regions in India had varied food choices, Heesen said the meals offered on the flight would cater to different palates and diverse culinary tastes.

He said the choice of meals on board were made on the basis of customer feedback and consequent improvement of existing meals plus introduction of new ones.

As per the fresh culinary plan designed to pamper high class travellers, Lufthansa would offer 66 dishes for the First Class and 42 for Business Class passengers. While such menus were already being offered on Delhi-Munich sector, they would be introduced in other sectors from September 1.

Maintaining that meals on board were different from those available in restaurants, Oberoi said each meal, therefore, had to be innovatively prepared and ensured that it remained tasty and satisfying at a height of 30,000 feet.

India may renegotiate $2 bln, 43 plane Airbus deal

NEW DELHI, July 21 (Reuters) - The Indian government plans to renegotiate an order worth about $2 billion from European plane maker Airbus [ARBU.UL] for state-run domestic carrier Indian Airlines [IA.UL], the civil aviation minister said on Thursday.

Praful Patel said the government had set up a panel to "make one last attempt" to reduce the cost of the 43 Airbus aircraft, a proposed order that was approved last November by India's Public Investment Board but still needed final government approval.

The Indian Airlines board had originally approved the purchase in March 2002.

"I agree there could be a delay of a few months in the acquisition of the aircraft," Patel told reporters. "These are high value transactions so therefore there should be the maximum possible transparency and everyone wants to be careful."

Indian Airlines plans to buy 19 A319s, four A320s and 20 A321s as part of a five-year fleet renewal programme.

The government had decided to renegotiate the purchase from Airbus, which is owned 80 percent by European aerospace group EADS and 20 percent by Britain's BAE Systems , as the government felt the current price was too high.

All the aircraft will be fitted with CFM-56 engines made jointly by General Electric Co. and Snecma [SNEC.UL], a state-controlled French aerospace company.

"The finance ministry and the civil aviation ministry have agreed that it is in the best interest of the carrier that there should be a renegotiation for better price," Patel said.

The decision comes after Airbus's public protest against state-run carrier Air-India's [AI.UL] decision to buy 50 long-range planes from U.S. arch-rival Boeing Co. for about $7 billion, alleging some irregularities in the deal.

Ninety percent of the Indian Airlines acquisition cost will be funded by foreign borrowings guaranteed by the government.

The new planes will allow it to retire older jets as it attempts to win back market share.

India's nascent private airline industry is taking off, with low-cost carriers vying for passengers as fares fall. Carriers have been modernising fleets and expanding as the government deregulates the sector.

Indian carriers accounted for more than half of the $13 billion of jet deals carved up between Boeing and Airbus at the Paris air show in June.

Indian Airlines IPO Inches Ahead
Price, Fleet Key

21 July 2005

NEW DELHI (Dow Jones)--Buoyed by the surge in air travel and a booming stock market, state-run Indian Airlines (IAIR.YY) Thursday moved closer toward an initial public offering, inviting bids from advisers.

In a newspaper advertisement, the carrier said interested banks would have to submit bids by August end.

"We will evaluate the bids soon after the date so that we can appoint the advisers at the earliest possible time," said a senior Indian Airlines official, who didn't want to be named.

The selected banks will advise the company on the quantum, pricing, valuation, and timing of the offering.

The official said the carrier is preparing to tap the market either at end of this year or early in 2006.

The government, which owns all of Indian Airlines, has said it plans to sell a 10%-15% stake.

"We need the money to fund our fleet expansion," said the official.

Analysts say the government may have to clear the airline's proposal to buy 43 Airbus (ABI.YY) planes worth $2.2 billion before the issue.

The proposal has been pending since March 2002.

Although Indian Airlines began as a monopoly domestic carrier, its growth has been hobbled by its aging fleet, shortage of aircraft, and high costs since the aviation sector was opened to competition in the mid '90s.

Kapil Kaul, chief executive officer at the Center for Asia Pacific Aviation, a consultancy, said most Indian Airlines planes are about 20 years old while the average commercial airliner is only 15 years old.

Indian Airlines now has 62 aircraft and a market share under 40%, trailing privately owned Jet Airways (532617.BY), which started operations in 1993 and listed on the stock exchange in March this year.

India's aviation sector is witnessing double-digit growth mainly due to rising middle class incomes and government measures to deregulate the sector.

In the financial year ended March 31, 2005, Indian passengers on domestic and international routes made a total of 48.7 million trips, up 11% on year.

Over the past year, low cost airlines like Air Deccan, Spice Jet (500285.BY) and Kingfisher Airlines have started operations, further nibbling into Indian Airlines' market share.

The equities market has also surged to record levels. The benchmark Sensex has gained 10% since the start of the year, crossing the key 7,000-point level on June 20. It hit a record 7,392.67 on July 20.

"I am not very optimistic about the (Indian Airlines) IPO," said Asia Pacific Aviation's Kaul.

"The issue will fare reasonably well. But it has to be priced properly," said Kalpesh Parekh, an analyst at ASK Raymond James.

Jet's IPO, priced at a steep INR1,100 ($25.3) per share, was subscribed 16.2 times. The company raised INR18.98 billion by selling 17.26 million shares.

"There cannot be any comparison with Jet," said Kaul, who feels that Indian Airlines will have to price its issue much lower.

Gurunath Mudlapur, head of research of Khandwala Securities Ltd. said the government's support in terms of guarantees given to the airline for aircraft purchases will also influence the issue.

Indian Airlines posted its first profit in three years in the year ended March 31, 2004, attributing it to increased passenger traffic. For the quarter ended June 30, 2005, it recorded a five-fold rise in net profit to INR284.50 million, helped by cost cutting.

Analysts say managing costs will remain a challenge. Many point out that the airline's workforce, currently numbering 18,562, needs trimming.

Just a random question, but when is AI going to start receiving its Boeing order? Are these planes actually going to have MODERN amenities (personal TV, functioning radio, video games, etc.) and are they going to be more spacious than the current fleet? I'm wondering mainly because it seems like AI planes are held together by glue and haven't been changed in fifty years even though every flight is packed.

First Flight Takes Off From Rain-Soaked Mumbai

MUMBAI, July 29 Asia Pulse - Nearly two days after the Mumbai airport was closed down due to incessant rains and flooding of the runway, Indian Airlines Thursday operated its first flight out of the city with 144 passengers onboard to Delhi.

The Indian Airlines Airbus A-320 left the Mumbai airport at 1:20 pm, airline sources said here.

Earlier, with limited navigational aids made available by the Airports Authority of India (AAI), the city airport was made "partially operational" and four aircraft, including three with relief materials, landed early Thursday.

"A special flight with Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (NSI:ONGC) Chairman Subir Raha and his team also landed as we have made the airport available for visual landing by aircraft with the help of limited navigational aids such as the localiser and the distance measuring equipment", AAI airport director Sudhir Kumar said.

Kumar said water has receded and visibility (upto 2.5 km) has improved considerably.

The Mumbai airport had been closed since 2.30 pm on Tuesday.

The flights were suspended after the runway of Mumbai airport was flooded when the Mithi river adjoining the airport, overflowed and inundated it.

HYDERABAD AIRPORT

Looks like HYD airport project is catching up with the one in Bangalore. This is a very healthy development as the competition heats up..

An extract from business-standard


Referring to the Bangalore international airport achieving financial closure in June 2005, Andhra Pradesh chief minister announced that the financial closure for the Hyderabad international airport is scheduled to be concluded tomorrow.

“Well, if your airport project commences commercial operations in March 2008, we will also do it at the same time, perhaps with a day's gap,” he said.

He also referred to the 8-lane 160-km outer ringroad project with 20 satellite towns proposed around Hyderabad and the knowledge corridor being planned to house IT, ITeS, banking and education sectors in 20,000 acres near the city.

Reddy also expressed his keenness on public-private-participation (PPP) in drinking water, waste water management, sectorwise infrastructure development to suit sectors such as apparel, pharma, agro-processing and auto clusters. He also invited PPPs in building integrated residential enclaves in Hyderabad, Tirupati and Warangal.

Air India Jet Skids Off Runway In Mumbai; No Injuries
30 July 2005

BOMBAY (AP)--An Air India (AIN.YY) plane to Chicago skidded off the runway of the international airport in rain-battered Bombay and got stuck in soft ground, but no injuries were reported among the crew and the 335 passengers, an airline spokesman said.

All passengers on the Boeing 747-400 from India's software hub of Bangalore to Chicago via Bombay and Frankfurt have been evacuated and shifted to another plane, said Jeetendra Bhargava, Air India spokesman.

The runway was closed temporarily, he said.

The airport was closed Tuesday after record monsoon rains lashed Bombay and its outlying areas, claiming nearly 750 lives. Some runways reopened Thursday.

India's Wadia Group Plans Low-Cost Airline

AP - Indian industrial conglomerate Wadia group, best known for its textile brand Bombay Dyeing, will launch a low-cost airline in October and is in talks with Airbus and Boeing Co. to buy 50 new jets over the next five to seven years, an official said Friday.

The new carrier, GoAir, will operate with up to 22 used Airbus A-320 planes for the first two years, when deliveries of the new planes will begin, Jeh Wadia, managing director of GoAirline (India) Pvt. Ltd, told The Associated Press.

"We want to be the lowest-cost airline in India," Wadia said, adding his airline would target passengers traveling in air-conditioned train coaches and overnight bus services.

Wadia declined to divulge investment details, but 50 new mid-size aircraft typically cost $3 billion under list prices.

The first flight will take off from the western city of Bombay, where the Wadias have their head office, but its destination or other routes have not been decided yet, he said. Each flight will offer 180 seats in a single class.

GoAir's acquisition plans take the total number of aircraft to be acquired by Indian budget carriers in the next five years to 305.

For decades, air travel in India had been expensive and largely dominated by state-owned carriers. But several new budget carriers have been attracting first-time flyers and aviation experts expect business to grow by 25 percent per year.

In the fiscal year that ended March 2005, some 16 million plane tickets were sold in India. Budget carriers offer at least 30 percent lower fares compared to big carriers and have schemes that sell tickets for as low as $16 each.

Budget carriers cut costs by doing away with in-flight meals, adding more seats, selling tickets on the Internet and working with a small crew.

India's first low-cost carrier, Air Deccan, began operations in August 2003 and hopes to serve 4 million tickets in the fiscal year ending March 2006.

SpiceJet and Kingfisher Airlines began operations in early 2005 and at least half a dozen budget carriers plan to begin operations in the next few months.

The Wadia group is engaged in textiles, chemicals, food, plantations, health care and education.
