Malaysia Airline to double India-bound flights by 2012

Quote:
Malaysia Airlines plans to double the number of flights to India to 60 per day from 30 at present by 2012 and is eyeing over 20 per cent growth in the Indian aviation market, a senior official of the airline said. "We have ordered several aircrafts, including A-380 of Airbus and will keep on adding
them in our fleet till 2015. Some of these aircrafts will be used to expand our presence in India and by 2012, we are looking at doubling the frequency of our flights," Malaysia Airlines Regional Manager (South Asia Operations) Azahar Hamid said.

He added that one more flight is being added on Hyderabad -Kuala Lumpur route from Sunday and 5 more flights will be operational by September between Delhi and Kuala Lumpur.

However, passengers willing to travel to Malaysia on A-380, world's largest aircraft, will have to wait for some more time as the company plans to use them on long routes like London and Sydney.

Delivery of six Airbus A-380s, ordered by the Airline, has been facing some delays and now the Airline is expecting them by 2012.

Hamid said that apart from A-380, the Airline has placed orders for 25 new Airbus A-330s and 55 aircrafts of Boeing's 738-800 series, which will make its fleet the youngest in the Asia by 2015.

He added that Malaysia Airline is eyeing to grow at over 20 per cent in the next couple of years in Indian and Chinese aviation markets as the "bad phase of aviation industry seems to be over."

The airline has also taken the price war with rival AirAsia up by a notch by announcing all-inclusive fares as low as Rs 6,212 for one-way trip to Kuala Lumpur from Chennai under its special monsoon offer.

The maximum return fare under the offer would be Rs 15,428, he said. These competitive fares offered by the airline are from its five gateways in India, namely New Delhi, Chennai, Mumbai, Bangalore and Hyderabad.

"With these fares, consumers can avail the full range of service such as on board refreshments, flight entertainment, 25-kg baggage allowance, allocated seats and more," Hamid said.

Tickets under the offer can be booked up to July 29 and travel can be undertaken between July 26 and December 26, 2010, he said, adding that all fares include airport taxes, fuel surcharges and administrative fees.

About aircraft maintenance, a repair and overhaul (MRO) facility is being created at the Hyderabad International Airport with GMR, Hamid said that the construction of the hangar is expected to be completed by the year-end.

also being studied.

The airline would be deploying a Boeing 777-300 Extended Range aircraft to operate the flight direct from Delhi, they said, adding that for the first time Air India would fly a Boeing 777 from Hyderabad.

Air India is eyeing the US-bound traffic from Pune, Bangalore and Hyderabad with the proposed launch of the Chicago flight, they said.

The airline had earlier announced plans to operate flight services to Melbourne, Chicago and San Francisco from the winter schedule that comes into effect from October 29.

But the Melbourne flight plan was shot down by one of the Independent Directors in the airline's Board, who wrote to the Civil Aviation Ministry last month saying it would not be economically viable and only add to the losses of the cash-strapped airline, the sources said.

However, the option for starting a direct service to San Francisco are being evaluated, they said.

Government had appointed four Independent Directors --Anand Mahindra, Vice Chairman and Managing Director of the Mahindra and Mahindra Group, Harsh Neotia, Chairman of the Ambuja Realty, Air Chief Marshal (Retd) Fali H Major and FICCI Secretary General Amit Mitra in March this year.

RGIA expansion work begins

Creating more space for passengers; no expansion of airside

Quote:
HYDERABAD: Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA), which has registered an impressive growth in passenger numbers, both domestic and international, has commenced works for expansion on both sides of the airport building.

The expansion is meant for creating more space for the passengers and there appears to be no need for expansion of the airside. Currently, the phase one of the new airport is capable of handling 12 million passengers a year (MPPA) with a peak hour passenger capacity of 3,200. Currently, the airport is handling approximately 6.5 million passengers.

The passenger traffic statistics in 2010 indicate that there is a steady growth in number of both domestic and international passengers at the green field airport which commenced operations in March 2008.

Passenger flow

Authorities say that the airport had handled 32.02 lakh domestic passengers between April 2010 and October 2010 as against a figure of 27.25 lakh in the corresponding period last year, recording a jump of over 4.76 lakh passengers. The April 2009- March 2010 figures of domestic passengers stood at 48.13 lakh.



The number of international passengers too recorded an increase of over 90,000 during the same period. While there were over 10 lakh passengers in April 2009 to October 2009, the figures jumped to 10.90 lakh for the same period this year. Similarly, the April 2009 - March 2010 figures of international passengers were 16.97 lakh.

There were 66,967 aircraft movements (touch down and take off) on domestic side between April 2009 and March 2010, while the figure stood at 39,862 between April 2010 and October 2010.

On the international side, the figures stood at 13,573 last year and 8141 this year till October. An airport spokesman said the present aircraft movement did not necessitate any expansion on the airside. There indeed was a proposal for a having a second runway, but the authorities are not considering this proposal at this moment.

Runway

The present runway measuring 4260 metres, one of the longest runways in India, has ten entry and exit points which include four rapid exit taxiways. The airport also has a 4395-metre long taxiway, which can be used as an emergency runway.

“Hence with the present aircraft movement, the present runway and taxiway will suffice the requirement,” the spokesman added.

An airport is the first things visitors to a country see, great to see world class airports being built in India, India is rising, but still has a long way to go.
