Potentially the air travel market could be huge. Right now the infrastructure needs to be picked up which I think the govt. is doing. I read an interesting article about how travelling between Delhi-Bombay by air only saved a few hours (like 2 or 3) mainly because airports are located far away and you need to get to an airport like and hour or 2 before the flight. Railway stations are reliatively more entrenched in the cities.

Case in point when I used to stay in Delhi the railway station from my house in South Delhi was 10 mins away and the airport was 1 hour away (taking into account New Delhi's congested traffic times).

Prices of air fuel and other taxes are also overblown in India. once they come down air travel should get a lot cheaper.

I know what you mean by the increasing middle class though. I went to India this December and the difference I saw was huge.

Financial Closure on HYD airport tommorow

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.

Airport Acft Movmt Passengers
Mumbai 127438 13066403
Delhi 100550 10456869
Chennai 51532 4727391
B'lore 46655 3429789
Kolkata 35330 2934910
Hyd'bd 28349 2291589

These figures are very unrealistic. Even secondary airports in Malaysia handled more passengers than Hydrebad or Calcutta if you use these figures. I am sure that domestic traffic is more than enough to drastically increase these figures.India's huge population is one factor but the most important factor is the emerging middle class and the proliferation of budget airlines like Jet Airways. I think 30 million is a more realistic figure for Mumbai

Upper middle class in India is defined as people living in households with annual incomes between $ 4,600 (Rs 200,000) and $ 23,200 (Rs 1,000,000). The lower middle class has another 200 million people, and is defined as people living in households with annual incomes between $ 1,900 (Rs 80,000) and $ 4,600 (Rs 200,000). So the total middle class is 300 million.

These numbers have NOT been adjusted for purchasing power parity.

How big is an average indian household. 5 people, 4 people? If we take 4, it means if annual income per person reaches $1,200 ($4,600/4), it will be considered as upper middle class. If annual income per person reaches $475 ($1,900/4), it will be called get into middle class?! The UN define poverty line is $356 annual income per person.

HIA Dateline 2008

MAHB's Hyderabad Airport Project To Be Completed By 2008


NEW DELHI, Aug 25 (Bernama) -- Hyderabad International Airport Ltd (HIAL), in which Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) has 11 percent share, is expected to be completed by 2008.

The first flight is expected to take off at the airport in the first quarter of the year, said a Hyderabad-datelined report in the financial daily, Hindu Business Line.

The Rs.17,600 million (US$400 million or RM1.48 billion) project will be able to handle seven million passengers per annum from the originally-planned five million passengers.

"We have ample scope to scale up the facilities to handle 40 to 50 million passengers in the future," Kiran K. Grandhi, managing director, GMR Group was quoted as saying during a press conference.

GMR Group has a 63 percent share in HIAL.

Wonderful to see India emerging in the air travel sector!

Comparing the pictures above to the images on "Page 1", it appears that this project will be constructed in phases, with the first phase consisting of one PTC, a cargo facility and one runway. Then with increasing demand, the second PTC and runway will be built opposite the original infrastructure, am I right?

Yup you are right . Here is the masterplan.

Project Phases
Phase 1A

A 104,100 sq mt terminal area will have the capacity to handle 5 million passengers per annum. Within it, will be a 17,000 sq mt technical services zone situated below the arrival level and a 1750 sq mt external circulation area at the departure level.

Remaining buildings, including the ATC, technical section, cargo (100,000 tonnes capacity), aircraft maintenance, airport maintenance, CFR station and utilities, will have a combined area of 35,000 sq mts



Phase 1B
Post Phase 1A, construction of subsequent phases will be determined by actual traffic volume. Phase 1B will have a capacity increase to 7 million passengers per annum, by adding passenger boarding bridges and aircraft stands on the north side of the pier. A VIP terminal, facility for General Aviation (GA) and a Low Cost Terminal (LCT) for 0.3 million passengers per annum will also be built.



Phase 1C
Capacity of the terminal will be further increased to 10 million passengers per annum with an additional area of 37,000 sq mts. The LCT capacity will also be increased to 0.5 million passengers per annum and additional maintenance facilities, catering and offices will be provided 40,000 sq mts of space




Phase 2
Terminal 1 is now approaching full development and therefore, needs to be expanded to an area of 250,000 sq mts. The LCT will also be expanded to its full capacity of 1.5 million passengers per annum

A second runway will be needed before the construction of Terminal 2 can commence. A major increase in all the established facilities will be undertaken, including more hotels, offices, cargo and maintenance facilities. Total built up area at the end of this phase will be approx. 470,000 sq mts.



Final Phase
The airport has reached its full maturity. An additional floor area of 430,000 sq mts will be constructed bringing the total built up area to 900,000 sq mts.

The ultimate master plan is for 40 million passengers per annum. To accomodate this potential increase, the present master plan allows freedom of expansion for both airside and landside facilities within the Airport site. Further acquisition of land to the north and south will allow expansion of a third and fourth runway system.

the ultimate goal is 40 million passengers per annum. the airport can be expanded on all sides if needed, though some demolition work would be needed to expand on the south side once it is constructed. that is the key poing of this project.

and i think architecturally, it looks better than the Bangalore International Airport, which is also currently reaching its final stages???
