Kingfisher gets OK to fly abroad in 2008: Govt

Quote:
Kingfisher Airlines would be permitted to fly abroad this year as it would enjoy the rights of low-cost carrier Air Deccan, which it has taken over.

“All three airlines -- Air India, Jet Airways and Kingfisher -- are going to fly abroad this year,” Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel said when asked about the fate of a request by the airline owned by liquor-baron Vijay Mallya to operate on international sectors.

When asked if there would be a change in the prevailing norms to permit Indian carriers to become eligible for international operations, he said, “they (Kingfisher and Air Deccan) are one company now”.

Air Deccan completes five years of domestic operations this August, thereby meeting the eligibility criteria required by the government to permit them to operate abroad. The low-cost carrier also satisfies the other criteria of having a 20 aircraft fleet.

The Minister’s reply indicates the current norms are unlikely to be changed and that Kingfisher would be allowed to fly abroad only because it has acquired Air Deccan, and therefore its rights.

The Kingfisher-Air Deccan combine has been a front-runner for being permitted to fly abroad as the low-cost carrier will be completing five years of domestic operations this August.

Jet Airways is the only private airline that has so far been allowed to go global as it matched both the eligibility criteria. State-run Air India also flies on international routes.

A Group of Ministers, which is studying the proposed Civil Aviation Policy, including these norms as well, is likely to meet soon to take a final call on the matter. It is understood that the continuation of the prevailing norms enjoys the majority view.
Great, now India will have three carriers flying around the world.

NEW DELHI, Jan 11 (Reuters) - Indian Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel said on Friday that his ministry would seek a duty cut on jet fuels in the end-February federal budget.

Air Arabia sets up low-cost carrier in Nepal to target India


Aiming to tap markets across Indian subcontinent, South and Central Asia, UAE-based Air Arabia has announced to set up Nepal's first international low-cost carrier in Kathmandu.

This will provide Air Arabia with a platform from which to serve markets stretching across Indian subcontinent, South and Central Asia, the Far East, and Middle East.

The new carrier is expected to begin operations with inaugural flight taking off to Sharjah before the end of January, followed by operations to destinations in India, Doha and Kuala Lumpur.

This announcement follows the signing of a joint venture agreement between Air Arabia and Yeti Airlines and approval from Nepal Government's Department of Industries (DOI).

Under the agreement, Air Arabia and Yeti Airlines will jointly establish a new low-cost carrier, based in Kathmandu that will provide affordable service to a broad range of international destinations, a company statement said here.

"This is an enormously significant agreement for Air Arabia, and an extremely timely one," said Sheikh Abdullah Bin Mohammad Al Thani, Chairman of Air Arabia.

India's Kingfisher to buy five more A380s: report

NEW DELHI, Jan 14, 2008 (AFP) - India's Kingfisher Airlines will buy five more superjumbo A380s in addition to the five it has already ordered as it seeks to start international operations this year, a report said Monday.

"Now that I have secured all the necessary clearances, I am planning to convert the options to confirmed orders," Vijay Mallya, the chief executive officer of Kingfisher, was quoted as saying by the Mint business daily.

The Indian government said this month Kingfisher would be permitted to fly overseas later this year.

"We will be operating all non-stop flights to international destinations," Mallya told the newspaper.

Kingfisher, the only Indian customer for the A380, could not immediately be reached for comment.

Under India's civil aviation rules, only airlines which have flown for at least five years can fly international routes. Kingfisher will complete five years in 2010.

But the airline can start flying foreign routes after its parent UB Group acquired a controlling stake in another carrier Deccan, which completes five years in the air in August 2008.

The two carriers have announced plans for a merger this year.

Kingfisher expects deliveries of the five A380s it had previously ordered to start in 2011-12.

Foreign airlines look to step up operations here


Buoyed by the impressive growth in passenger traffic in India, foreign airlines are on expansion spree here. While Star Alliance member Lufthansa plans to launch operation on Pune-Germany sector besides increasing its frequency on the existing routes, Cathay Pacific would start flying on the Hong Kong-Chennai sector. Another Hong Kong-based carrier, Dragonair, is in the process of flying to Bangalore.

According to a data compiled by the Airports Authority of India (AAI), 16.21 million people flew on international routes to and from India during April-October 2007-08. This was a growth of 17.1% over the same period last fiscal. “There is strong demand on India-Hong Kong sector and we have seen a load factor of nearly 90% for quite some time.

With India and Hong Kong increasing the seat entitlements for each other, we are planning to expand our operation in India significantly,” Cathay Pacific general manager (India, Middle East, Africa and Pakistan), Tom Wright said.
Cathay Pacific plans to launch 23 new flights a week connecting Indian cities such as Mumbai, Delhi and Chennai with Hong Kong by early June.

Another Asian carrier Air China is also looking at adding more destinations like Bangalore and Kolkata on its Indian network, besides increasing its frequency on Delhi-Beijing route from the existing three flights a week. Gulf-based carriers such as Emirates, Gulf Air and Qatar Airways are also aggressively looking at tapping the traffic growth in non-metro cities such as Calicut, Amritsar and Lucknow.

“There is enough scope for all the airlines to operate in India as nearly 40% bilateral seat entitlements are still unutalised. Also, we are improving airport infrastructure in the country to provide air-connectivity to more points,” an official in the ministry of civil aviation said.

No duty-free shops at Mumbai international Airport yet

No duty-free shops at Mumbai international Airport yet
20 Feb, 2008, 0323 hrs IST,Nirbhay Kumar, TNN


NEW DELHI: The busiest airport in the country — Mumbai international Airport — is functioning without duty-free outlets for more than a year now. The swanky duty-free shopping experience promised after corporatisation of the airport is yet to materialise. As a result, passengers are denied of the facility of purchasing duty-free goods at prices that could be more competitive than airports in Europe and the US.

GVK Group-led consortium that is upgrading the Mumbai airport had awarded a mega contract for duty-free outlets to a joint venture between ITDC and Aldeasa of Spain which failed to take off. Then the contract was offered to DFS which is yet to launch its outlets. When contacted, Mumbai International Airport (MIAL) spokesperson said that new duty-free shops are expected in a week. “DFS would complete its first phase of work for duty-free shops at the airport in the next week. By May-end, the entire project should be up and running,” he said. MIAL is a consortium led by GVK Airports with Airports Authority of India (AAI) holding 26% stake.

The airport operator had in November last year terminated the contract of ITDC-Aldeasa joint venture. With ITDC and Aldeasa failing to decide the equity structure for the proposed JV, duty-free shops at Mumbai airport remained a distant dream for travellers for almost half an year. MIAL awarded the contract to DFS which had emerged as the second highest bidder.

When DFS won the contract in November, it was estimated that new outlets would be opened by January. However, not even a single outlet has materialised so far. DFS has become the second part to face the Mumbai duty-free jinx. It won the contract by committing a minimum guarantee of Rs 260 crore to MIAL, about 60% lower than the original bidders, the ITDC-Aldeasa consortium.

Duty-free Shop construction in Oct.

Pakistan and India double flights, link capitals: statement

ISLAMABAD, Feb 15, 2008 (AFP) - Pakistan and India agreed Friday to more than double the number of weekly flights between the two nations and start flights linking their capitals as part of a peace process, officials said.

The nuclear-armed neighbours agreed to operate 28 flights a week instead of the current 12, and add Islamabad, New Delhi and the Indian city of Chennai to the list of destinations, a statement said after two days of talks.

Currently flights only operate between Karachi and Lahore in Pakistan and New Delhi and Mumbai in India.

They also agreed to let three airlines from each country operate services on the agreed routes, the statement said. Only one airline from each side is currently allowed to fly between Pakistan and India.

Delegations from both sides signed a memorandum of understanding over the changes at the Pakistani Ministry of Defence in the garrison city of Rawalpindi, the statement said.

"Both sides expressed satisfaction that the new arrangement would further the objective of facilitating people to people contacts, business and trade activities between the two countries," it said.

The meeting was part of a slow-moving peace process launched by the nuclear-armed rivals in January 2004 to improve bilateral relations after decades of hostility.

The two countries have fought three wars since independence from Britain in 1947, two of them over the Himalayan territory of Kashmir, which is divided between the two but claimed in full by both.

Airport expansion plans take off


The Airports Authority of India (AAI) has proposed an outlay of Rs12,434 crore for the development of infrastructure at various airports around the country during the Eleventh Plan period. The Government has already stated that the main objective of the Plan, which gets over in 2011-12, would be to provide world-class infrastructure facilities, apart from ensuring safe, reliable and affordable air services so as to encourage growth in passenger and cargo traffic.

Apart from other States in the country, the AAI plans to take up work at airports in Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Port Blair, Agatti, Pondicherry and Kerala.

In Chennai, the AAI is to take up the development of the Kamaraj Airport’s domestic terminal Phase II, along with the expansion of the existing Anna International Terminal and giving a face-lift to the other terminals.

Similarly, in Madurai, the Authority plans to construct a new integrated terminal building complex which will be capable of handling 500 passengers by February next year.

While, in Tuticorin, the AAI is all set to strengthen and extend the runway so that the airport will be able to receive the 50-seater ATR-72 aircraft.

In the case of Coimbatore, the Authority plans to construct a new integrated terminal complex that can accommodate 500 passengers and cars, and a new apron for parking four Airbus A-321 and two Boeing 777-200 aircraft. The expansion and modification of the existing terminal building will also be undertaken.

In neighbouring Kerala, the Authority plans to strengthen the runway facilities for the Boeing 777-200 and Boeing 747-400 class of aircraft at Kozhikode airport by April this year. In Agatti, it plans to strengthen and expand the existing runway for airlines to operate the ATR-72 aircraft, apart from the construction of a bridge between the two islands for extension of runway and associated facilities.

At Port Blair, the AAI plans to strengthen and extend the apron and associated taxi-way for the parking of two A-310 and four A-321 aircraft, besides constructing an integrated international terminal block for 500 passengers and allotting space for 300 cars to park.

In Karnataka, airport development work is to take place in Hassan, Mangalore, Hubli, Mysore and Belgaum. While in Hubli it is proposed to construct a new terminal building complex for 400 passengers, in Mangalore the plan is to have a new terminal building which will be able to accommodate 500 passengers besides the construction of space to park six Airbus A-321 aircraft.

In Andhra Pradesh, work will be taken up in the five cities of Cudappah, Rajahmundry, Tirupati, Visakhapatnam and Vijayawada. While in Cudappah the plan is to make the airport operational for ATR 72 aircraft, in Rajahmundry the AAI plans to construct a new terminal building for 150 passengers.

In other parts of the country, the state-owned airport developer will construct a new domestic arrival block for 800 passengers, a new international terminal complex for 1,500 passengers with three boarding bridges and a new cargo complex for 20,000 tonnes of cargo at Ahmedabad.

In Rajasthan, the AAI is to take up projects in five cities including Jaipur where it is proposed to construct a new international complex building which during the first phase would be able to accommodate 500 passengers. Similarly, the existing airport will be developed at Mount Abu.

Maharashtra will see the development of airports in eight cities, including Baramati, which is being developed to accommodate ATR-72s, while in Pune the proposal is to construct an integrated international terminal building that can accommodate 500 passengers.

Finnair to expand operations to India from June


Quote:
With flights to India driving its growth, Nordic carrier Finnair is adding one more flight to India in June, even as it awaits permission from the government to add more destinations in addition to Mumbai and Delhi.

"Currently we have 12 flights a week between India and Helsinki. By June, we will fly daily from New Delhi and six times a week from Mumbai," Taina Tornstrom, the director for Indian subcontinent for the airline, told reporters.

"We are eager to add more destinations. But currently the bilateral arrangement between the two countries permits flights only to Delhi and Mumbai," Tornstrom said, adding that Asian passenger traffic grew over 24 percent last year, thanks to operations to India.

Jet launches daily direct Mumbai-Bangkok flights


Quote:
Mumbai, May 07: Private air-carrier Jet Airways has launched daily direct flights between Mumbai and Bangkok with effect from on Wednesday.

This will be its third service to Bangkok from the country, a press release issued here stated.

The air-carrier already operates daily services to Bangkok from Delhi and Kolkata respectively.

Its Mumbai-Bangkok flight (9w 62) will depart Mumbai at 0110 hrs and arrive at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi airport at 0650 hrs.

On the return leg, its flight (9w 61) will depart Bangkok at 0840 hrs and arrive in Mumbai at 1145 hrs, the release said.

Jet Airways' CEO, Wolfgang Prock-Schauer, said, "Jet Airways' services to Bangkok from Delhi and Kolkata have proved extremely popular with passengers. This, combined with strong passenger demand for a daily service connecting Thailand's capital city with the financial heart of India, lead us to believe that Jet Airways' Mumbai-Bangkok flight will prove equally popular."

The air-carrier is offering economy class return airfares beginning Rs 15,320, exclusive of taxes and premier fares from Rs 35,115, exclusive of taxes, the release added.

Jet launches daily direct Mumbai-Bangkok flights
I'm kind of surprised that places like Munich, where I doubt there's many Indians are getting daily direct flights to India. I bet it's all catering to Indian-American customers.

I think there's a lot of potential for India-U.S. direct flights. I'd like to see direct flights from Detroit to New Delhi in the next 5 years.
