Flights to Mumbai on schedule despite deadly attacks

Dubai: Flights continued to Mumbai on Thursday, despite the deadly attacks that killed 101 people.

Airlines are monitoring the situation and will assess the situation if it worsens, they said.

Indian Airlines and Etihad Airways from the UAE will be operating their flights to Mumbai on schedule and their have been no cancellations.

Anand Kumar Pandey, Country manager, Indian Airlines said: "Two flights left for Mumbai on Wednesday and two will fly on time Thursday.

Thomas Clarke, Public Relations Etihad Airways, said: "There are no flights cancelled, but for the next four days we will reduce the on-ground time of our flights at the Mumbai Airport. For this the departure of our flights to Mumbai will be delayed for five hours from Abu Dhabi. We have been keeping our passengers informed of the timings and changes. In addition to this on Friday and Saturday we will be operating the A3-30 Airbus instead of A3-20. Because A3-30 will accommodate 200 plus passengers.”

Jet Airways' operations, both domestic and international, into and out of Mumbai have remained largely unaffected and on schedule.

In view of the recent turmoil in the city, Jet Airways advises passengers availing of its domestic and international services out of Mumbai airport, to carry valid photo-identification and report at the airport well before the scheduled departure of their respective flights, in compliance with enhanced security requirements.

The airline has also announced the waiver of cancellation and re-issue charges on its domestic and international services into and out of Mumbai, on Thursday, 27 November and Friday, 28 November, 2008 on account of the current situation.

Passengers may contact the airline call centre on 39893333 or the toll free number 1800-22-55-22 for further information or visit www.jetairways.com

One Lufthansa flight on its way to Mumbai on Wednesday was diverted to New Delhi. Two other flights on Thursday were cancelled, a spokesman for the airline said.

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, the Dutch arm of Air France KLM, cancelled a flight to Mumbai, the website of Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport showed.

British Airways said all flights will continue normally.

Airport Security In India

In the last few days, Indian Air Ports have been put on alert for the umpteenth time, albeit for a few days again. Each time there is a threat, there is a knee jerk reaction which fizzles down in a few days. What do you all feel about the security at Indian airports, particularly at the small airports. I feel that we must look at electronic surveillance in a big way rather than increasing the CISF manpower momentarily and subsequently revert to the same level.

British Airways starts Hyderabad-London flights

X-Posting from "Hyderabad International Airport Thread", Orginally posted by "srik89"
********************************************************************
In a welcome boost to its international traffic profile, Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, Hyderabad yesterday(7/12/08) hosted the first flight from the UK’s largest scheduled airline, British Airways.

The new route provides a direct flight from Hyderabad to London Heathrow Terminal 5 in the UK and offers connections to 22 destinations in North America. British Airways will operate five weekly non-stop flights between Hyderabad and London – the only airline to offer direct flights between the two cities.

British Airways Area Commercial Manager for South Asia Amanda Amos said: “We are very excited about the launch of our Hyderabad service. India is an incredibly important market for the airline and the start of this service demonstrates our commitment to this market.”

The inaugural British Airways flight, which landed at Rajiv Gandhi International Airport at 4:40a.m. on 7 December, received a traditional water cannon salute from the fire-fighting ‘Panthers’ at the rapid exit way.

The passengers and crew were welcomed by GMR Hyderabad International Airport Limited (GHIAL) Chief Operating Officer, Peter Noyce, Director Prasanna C and Chief Commercial Officer Viswanath Attaluri.

“Despite the economic meltdown, Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) has registered a reasonable growth in the international passenger traffic. The excellent facilities available at RGIA have opened up exciting opportunities for world-class carriers like British Airways to add Hyderabad as a preferred destination,” Viswanath said.

He added: “Rajiv Gandhi International Airport is poised to make Hyderabad a truly global air travel hub in India.”

Kingfisher launches daily Mumbai-London flight

Quote:
Mumbai (PTI): Vijay Mallya-owned Kingfisher Airlines on Monday launched its first daily non-stop Mumbai-London flight with a new Airbus 330-200 aircraft, configured in two classes.

"The flight had almost full occupancy with 28 passengers in Kingfisher First and 169 in Kingfisher Class," company spokesperson told PTI.

The flight 'IT 007' left the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA) at 1350 hrs and was carrying 10 chief executive officers of top travel agencies from Delhi and Mumbai, the spokerperson said.

The return flight from London 'IT 008' would leave at 2030 hrs and arrive at the Mumbai airport on the next day at 1100 hrs.

Mumbai-London is the private carrier's second overseas flight after the one on Bangalore-London route that was launched in September last year.

Kingfisher also plans to launch Mumbai-Hong Kong operations from January 12 and Mumbai-Singapore flight from January 16.

In addition, its flights from Bangalore and Chennai to Sri Lanka capital, Colombo, will start from January 19.

Indian airline sacks overweight stewardesses: report
5 January 2009
Agence France Presse

India's state-run carrier Air India has dismissed 10 women flight attendents who were grounded last year for being overweight, a report said Monday.

The sackings came after the cabin crew were warned about meeting minimum physical fitness standards and given sufficient time to lose weight, the Press Trust of India news agency reported quoting airline sources.

The flight attendents were also offered alternative ground assignments which they refused, the report said.

Delhi High Court last year upheld Air India's right to reassign overweight attendants, citing clauses in their contracts that barred them from flight duties if they put on too much weight.

The court had noted that the state-run airline needed fit attendants to compete with private rivals in India's fiercely competitive aviation market.

Meanwhile, a lawyer for the sacked cabin crew Monday said the dismissals were against the law as the case was being heard by India's Supreme Court.

"The action is illegal and against the natural justice. I will soon file an application in the Supreme Court against the (sacking) order," lawyer Arvind Sharma told the news agency.

Jet Airways group remains India's largest airline

Quote:
Private carrier Jet Airways, together with its low-cost airline JetLite, was India's largest domestic air services operator in 2008, ferrying some 12.01 million passengers for a market share of 29.5 percent, latest data showed on Tuesday.

Kingfisher Airlines, along with its budget carrier Kingfisher Red, was next, flying 11.26 million passengers to capture a 27.6 percent market share, as per data released by the civil aviation ministry.

Air India's domestic operations continued to lose market share and flew just 6.63 million passengers for a market share of 16.3 percent. It had a 19-percent market share in 2007.

Overall, Indian domestic carriers ferried 40.7 million passengers in 2008, a marginal drop of 5 percent over the previous year. Indian carriers carried 42.8 million passengers in 2007.

Jet to sell and lease back aircraft to meet expenses


Full-service carriers may need cash cover till 2010 as overall fiscal environment remains uncertain, analyst says


Mumbai: Hit by a credit crunch and a third-quarter loss of Rs214 crore, Jet Airways (India) Ltd plans to sell and lease back at least one of the 11 wide-body A330 aircraft in its fleet in addition to raising a bank loan to meet immediate operational costs, a company executive said on Monday.
The airline expects a “comfortable cash position for this fiscal” after borrowing Rs750 crore, said K.G. Vishwanath, senior general manager for management information systems and investor relations at the airline, India’s largest carrier by passengers flown.
The airline is in talks with domestic lenders for the loan, Vishwanath told an analysts’ conference. The airline would raise the funds from two nationalized banks, The Economic Times reported on Monday, citing chief executive officer Wolfgang Prock-Schauuer.

The amount will be raised as a term loan and used to fund the airline’s working capital requirements, said a senior Jet Airways executive who did not want to be identified. Another person close to the development, who also didn’t want to be named, said the carrier is in talks with State Bank of India.
“We have plans to do a sale-and-leaseback of A330 during this quarter. The details of sale-and-leaseback are yet to be finalized,” Vishwanath said at the conference. Jet Airways had raised $22 million (Rs106.9 crore) by selling one Airbus SAS-made A330 earlier that it leased back.

The airline raised Rs1,250 crore from Punjab National Bank, or PNB, and Indian Overseas Bank last month to meet operational cash requirements. In the case of the PNB loan, Jet Airways pledged its international ticket sales, whereby ticket revenue would go into a special bank account from which the lender would first withdraw its share and the balance would go to the airline.
Loss-making Indian carriers, including Jet Airways, Kingfisher Airlines Ltd and state-run Air India, are seeking cash to fund operations amid a slowdown that’s causing passenger traffic to decline. The airline industry’s losses this fiscal are estimated to mount to a collective $2 billion. “Pressure will continue on full-service carriers over the coming months,” wrote Kapil Kaul, chief executive officer (Indian subcontinent and West Asia) of the Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation, or Capa, an international aviation consulting firm, in a 12 January report.

Jet Airways, Kingfisher and Air India “may need cash cover till 2010 and the amount raised might not be enough”, Kaul wrote. “The near break-even situation in December 2009 has given the airlines a temporary breathing space but the overall fiscal environment continues to be uncertain.”
The report also indicated that National Aviation Co. of India Ltd, or Nacil, that runs Air India, would likely receive a capital infusion of more that $600 million from the government in the next 30 days. “Kingfisher appears to be closer to securing funds but is yet to finalize” (an agreement), the report added. A senior Nacil executive, who didn't want to be named because he is not authorized to speak to the media, said the airline is in talks with banks to raise working capital even as it awaits financial help from the government.
Nacil had in December sought at least Rs4,000 crore from the Union government in equity and debt, given continuing losses and the costs of merging Air India and the erstwhile Indian Airlines.
Last week, civil aviation minister Praful Patel said the expansion of the equity base in Nacil is expected to come up for cabinet approval in February when Parliament reconvenes.

Kingfisher Airlines, the country’s second largest private carrier by number of passengers flown, is also in the process of raising at least Rs1,500 crore to meet working capital requirements. Last year, Kingfisher merged with Deccan Aviation Ltd, which operated the erstwhile Air Deccan, the country’s largest low-fare carrier. “The airline is in talks with various Indian banks and overseas financial institutions to raise funds,” said another person close to the development, who did not want to be named. The carrier recently raised Rs1,000 crore from ICICI Bank Ltd to meet its working needs.
Even low-cost carriers are struggling with a shortage of funds. The Capa report said Delhi-based SpiceJet Ltd will need a capital infusion because its current cash resources may run out in a few months. New York-based private equity fund WL Ross and Co. Llc., had in August agreed to invest $80 million in SpiceJet.

As the aviation industry struggles, the Indian government is also considering allowing foreign airlines to buy up to a 25% stake in local carriers, Patel said last week. However, a Mumbai-based analyst at an international brokerage, who didn’t want to be named, said the proposal may not be implemented any time soon as the general election is due in May.
SpiceJet’s chief executive officer Sanjay Aggarwal said foreign investment would be welcomed by the industry. “It will allow funds and expertise to come into India and allow the aviation industry to mature and be more competitive,” Aggarwal said. However, he maintained that SpiceJet is “not in a situation where we need any financial investment. If other airlines are in pursuit of funds it will certainly be a good move for them”.
Aditya Ghosh, president of IndiGo, a Delhi-based low-fare airline operated by InterGlobe Aviation Pvt. Ltd, also denied a cash crunch, saying, “We have no need to raise any funds.”

Airlines’ ability to raise funds by diluting promoters’ equity has been dented by the global economic and financial crisis. Jet Airways and Kingfisher Airlines have both postponed such plans. Private equity players are also shy of investing in Indian carriers, given continuing losses.
Prock-Schauer, the CEO of Jet Airways, said the airline has no intention of selling a stake to any foreign airline. “Globally, foreign airlines are not financially healthy to make investments in other airlines,” he said.

Air India reschedules Bahrain-Kerala flights


DUBAI: National carrier Air India has announced a new schedule for its flights between Bahrain and Kerala beginning January 23.


Under this, Air India is set to increase the frequency of its flights from Bahrain to Thiruvananthapuram from one to thrice a week.

Simultaneously it will reduce its flight frequency between Bahrain and Kozhikode from six to four a week.

The airline used to fly only once every Tuesday between Bahrain and Thiruvanthapuram but beginning January 23, it will operate two more flights, on Fridays as well as on Saturdays.

Since Indian Airlines is already operating daily from Bahrain to Kochi and Kozhikode, this change will accommodate the airline's plan to spread out its network, following the merger of Air India with Indian Airlines.

As per the new schedule, on Tuesday the flight will depart Bahrain at 12.55am and reach Thiruvananthapuram at 7.50am. On Friday and Saturday, the flight will take off from Bahrain at 11.20pm and reach Thiruvananthapuram at 7.30am the next day.

Turkish Airlines starts daily flights from Delhi to Istanbul


New Delhi (PTI): The Turkish Airlines on Monday launched daily flights from Delhi and Mumbai to Istanbul and wants to connect Hyderabad and Chennai in the next phase of expansion in India.

"We are studying other routes in India. The destinations include Hyderabad and Chennai. We may start these flights from 2010 but not this year," the airline's CEO Temel Kotil said here.

With seven flights from Mumbai and Delhi, he said the airline has exhausted its existing rights of 14 services a week, but expressed hope that these would be increased in the next bilateral air traffic talks between India and Turkey. The Turkish carrier so far had four flights a week from Delhi and three from Mumbai.

Responding to questions, Kotil said the main attraction for Indian travellers to fly on Turkish Airlines would be its connectivity to Europe (including Russia), Middle East and Africa.

"More than half the passengers transit through Istanbul for Europe and Russia. It is almost like the ancient Silk Route which used to pass from Asia to the Europe via Turkey," he said, adding Indian passengers could get convenient connections to 93 destinations including those in Germany, France, the UK and Russia.

He said the airline connected even cities like Lyons in France, which would help a passenger to fly to such cities directly, instead of changing flights again.

With the launch of daily flights from Mumbai and Delhi today, the airline would be increasing the number of seats by 20 per cent, Kotil said. Turkish Airlines has 127 aircraft now and has placed orders for 105 more planes worth USD 6 billion over the next eight years.

Air France to withdraw its services to city from March-end


CHENNAI: Though international passenger traffic is reviving after a slump caused by the impact of the ongoing economic slowdown, foreign airlines
have now started to cut services to Chennai. Air France has intimated the Airports Authority of India (AAI) that it would be withdrawing its thrice a week service out of Chennai from March-end. Singapore Airlines and Malaysian Airlines have already cut their day services from Chennai.

Air France's decision would be a blow to passengers, especially French nationals from Puducherry, as the airline offers direct flights to Paris. "The airline is mostly preferred by French nationals who have links with Puducherry. The airline did not have many bookings as the travel to Puducherry is seasonal," said an airport official.

"The move will affect people who travel to Paris from Chennai. They will now have to travel to Dubai, Frankfurt, London, Abu Dhabi or Colombo and take a flight to Paris. Not many people are travelling international these days when compared to previous years. Earlier, it was difficult to get a seat on any of the flights to Europe but now seats are full only during weekends," said D Sudhakara Reddy, president, Air Passengers Association of India.

"Apart from those travelling directly to Paris, the airline did not get many transit passengers as Paris is not a popular transit point for Indians flying to the West. The city is expensive and language is a problem. So, people prefer Frankfurt, Dubai and London as transit points when they fly to the US," said Basheer Ahmed, chairman, Travel Agents Federation of India.

"Air France did not have daily services. But Lufthansa, British Airways and Emirates have daily services from Chennai with changeovers from their home countries," he added.

According to Sudhakara Reddy it is a bad time for international travel. "Singapore Airlines and Malaysian Airlines withdrew their morning service from January," he said.

However, statistics compiled by AAI shows that international passenger traffic has been going up since the last two months.

International passenger traffic was approximately 3.31 lakh in August but it came down to 2.93 lakh in September and 2.85 lakh in October following the slowdown. But, the traffic started picking up in November and December. In December, it touched 3.28 lakh, edging closer to August figures.

The sudden dip in passenger traffic forced many airlines to review their schedules, said an AAI official. "The reduction in services comes in the wake of passenger numbers going down. Airlines have started to prioritise their schedules depending on the load factor," he added.

Indian president's chopper in collision scare with domestic flight


New Delhi - A major accident was averted at the Mumbai airport Monday when a helicopter of Indian President Pratibha Patil landed on the runway just as a passenger jet was about to take off, media reports said.

An Indian Airlines aircraft bound for New Delhi with 148 passengers aboard aborted the take-off after the pilot spotted the chopper on the runway, the NDTV network reported.

The plane had already run for a kilometre and gained momentum when the pilot noticed that the helicopter was dangerously close and applied emergency brakes, the IANS news agency reported.

The helicopter that missed the runway collision was part of Patil's entourage but the Indian leader was not on board, an official statement said. Patil is currently on a visit to the region.

Mumbai's Air Traffic Control had given clearance to the flight and the helicopter at the same time and the domestic aviation authorities have ordered an inquiry into the incident, the reports said.

'The tyre of the aircraft got damaged in the incident and the aircraft was then taken to a bay. Passengers have been flown to the national capital by another aircraft,' an Indian Airlines spokesman told the IANS.

Emirates Airlines positive about growth of Indian market


Despite the global recession, UAE-based Emirates Airlines is successful in moving up its growth chart. When most of the international carriers are either withdrawing or reducing flights from Indian cities, Emirates Airlines recently added nine more flights to Dubai from Indian cities. The airline seems to be positive about the Indian growth this year, despite the global slowdown. Talking about the growth prospects of the Indian market, Orhan Abbas, Vice President – India & Nepal, Emirates Airlines said, “We are currently recording a passenger load of about 75 per cent on most of our flights on Indian routes. We see hardly any impact of global downturn on the Indian market and are sure that India will be showing outstanding growth rates this year. It is because of the growth and demand that we decided to add nine more flights from India to Dubai.”

According to Abbas, India is one of the strongest markets for the airline on its worldwide network. The airline is looking at strengthening its brand awareness in the Indian market along with further enhancing passenger experience. It offers stopovers at Dubai along with chauffeur services to first class passengers. It is soon going to launch the luxury lounge for Business and First Class passengers at Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL).

The airline has added nine additional services from Mumbai, Chennai and Bangalore starting February 1, 2009. Of the total nine, seven are from Mumbai and one each from Chennai and Bangalore. Now, the total number of daily service from Mumbai is 35 from 28 flights a week, while Bangalore have 20 flights a week and Chennai stands at 19 flights a week. Apart from these three cities, it also operates out of Delhi, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Kochi, Kozhikode, Ahmedabad and Thiruvananthapuram.
