Emirates’ A380 Awaits India Approval as Rules Block Flights of Superjumbo

By Karthikeyan Sundaram - Jul 19, 2011 11:31 AM PT

Emirates Airline celebrated the opening of the new terminal at the New Delhi airport last year by flying in an Airbus SAS A380.

The plane has not returned there since. India’s government has not acted on requests to change regulations that bar overseas carriers, including Emirates and Deutsche Lufthansa AG (LHA), from flying aircraft bigger than the Boeing Co. 747 into the country. That rules out the A380.

The two airlines are eager to tap India’s growing travel market with the A380, the world’s biggest passenger aircraft. They have run up against policies that protect state-owned Air India Ltd., according to Rishikesha Krishnan, a professor of corporate strategy at the Indian Institute of Management in Bangalore.

“All these measures are to shore up Air India and they completely distort the market,” said Krishnan, who writes papers about India’s aviation industry. “They are all misguided restrictive practices and not in the best interest of Indian aviation.”

The rules deny more choices for passengers and reduce competition for Air India, Krishnan said. The carrier merged with state-owned Indian Airlines in 2007 and has received 20 billion rupees ($449 million) of public funds since April 1, 2009.

Cost Advantage
Nasim Zaidi, secretary at the Ministry of Civil Aviation, declined to comment when asked if the government was delaying A380 approvals to help Air India. An Air India spokesman declined to comment, and Air India Chairman Arvind Jadhav did not respond to two calls to his mobile phone, calls to his office and e-mailed questions.
The A380 offers a “significant cost advantage to airlines, allowing them to price tickets cheaper,” said Amber Dubey, a Gurgaon, India-based director at auditing and consulting company KPMG. “That’s the reason some Indian carriers are concerned.”

Lufthansa, which flies to seven destinations in India with 52 weekly flights, is ready to operate the A380 to New Delhi as soon as India allows the service, the airline said in an e-mail response to questions.

‘Hugely Popular’
Emirates, owner of the world’s largest fleet of A380s, anticipates strong demand for the superjumbo in the country, Tim Clark, president of the airline, said in an interview.
“We want to take the A380 to India. It would be hugely popular,” Clark said. “Our expansion plans depend on the Indian government -- they make the call on whether we can increase our frequencies.”
The A380 can seat 525 people in a typical three-class configuration, while a similar Boeing 747 can fly 416 people. The A380 has a wingspan of 262 feet (80 meters) and stands almost 80 feet tall from the ground to the top of its tail.

Airports across India, including New Delhi’s, have undergone renovation and runway extensions to accommodate the A380, said V.P. Agrawal, chairman of the state-run Airports Authority of India. Delhi’s airport added three gates -- 15, 17 and 19 -- specifically meant for the plane.

“Delhi and Hyderabad airports are built exactly to the requirement of an A380,” Agrawal told Bloomberg July 14. “A380 operations from Delhi were not permitted. I’m not sure why, but maybe others see a threat.”

Lucrative Routes
Airports in Mumbai, the southern city of Chennai and Kolkata in the east can also handle the plane, Agrawal said. Kingfisher Airlines Ltd. (KAIR), the only Indian carrier to have ordered the A380, will start taking the plane in 2016, Chairman Vijay Mallya said June 6.
Allowing Emirates to fly the A380 into India would intensify competition for Air India on routes to the Gulf, which are among its most lucrative, said P.C.K. Ravindran, chairman of Kochi-based Institute of Applied Aviation Management.

“So long as Air India is a state property, the government will have to take care of its interest,” said Ravindran, who advises on air projects and has written a book about India’s regulatory framework. “Air India is not just competing with Emirates -- it is fighting for room with Etihad, Air Arabia and RAK Airways, and let’s not forget Indian carriers flying to the Gulf.”

Flights to the Gulf region, where 2.2 million Indians migrated for work between 2007 and 2009, accounted for 49 percent of Air India’s overseas services, according to the Civil Aviation Ministry’s annual report for the year ended in March.

Air India’s Troubles
Air India has about 53 weekly flights to Dubai, mostly using Airbus 321 jets that can seat 172 people. Its low-fare unit Air India Express operates 54 weekly flights, Chief Operating Officer S. Chandrakumar told Bloomberg by text message on July 12.
The company also has more immediate problems. It may receive 17 billion rupees from the government to help the carrier pay salaries and maintain services, according to a company official familiar with the matter. Air India is seeking as much as 175 billion rupees from the government to help reduce debt and pay for planes on order after posting four years of annual loss. The airline is working on a financial restructuring plan to pare debt of 400 billion rupees as of March.

As of April last year, Indian carriers were eligible to sell 711,356 seats per week on flights to and from 104 countries. They utilized only 170,914 seats a week, compared with 326,705 seats by overseas airlines, official data showed.

Air India’s struggles have come as foreign airlines nearly doubled service to and from India in 2010 compared with six years ago, according to data from the Civil Aviation Ministry. Boeing expects a market of 1,320 new passenger planes in India over the next 20 years.

Emirates is going to continue aggressively expanding its A380 destinations.

Emirates to serve Kuala Lumpur with A380

Emirates will be the first airline to offer scheduled A380 services to Malaysia from December 1.

The Dubai-based carrier will operate daily flight EK346 with the superjumbo, departing the UAE at 0405 and arriving in KL at 1455, with return leg EK347 leaving Malaysia at 1930 and landing back in Dubai at 2230.

The news means Emirates will pip Malaysia Airlines to the post in offering A380 services from Kuala Lumpur. MAS is set to take delivery of its first superjumbo next spring, and is believed to be planning to operate the aircraft on key routes to London and Amsterdam (see online news May 31).

Emirates recently inaugurated A380 services to Shanghai (see online news April 27), and will roster the superjumbos on to routes to Johannesburg (October 1) and Munich (January 1, 2012).

Emirates to serve Rome with A380

Emirates will operate one of its twice-daily flights between Dubai and Rome with the A380 from December 1, following a one-off superjumbo service last month to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the city’s Leonardo da Vinci airport (see online news May 4).

The carrier will operate EK97 with the superjumbo, departing Dubai at 0910 and arriving in Rome at 1235. The return leg EK98 will leave the Italian city at 1435 and land back in Dubai at 2305.

Earlier this week Emirates announced the start of A380 flights to Kuala Lumpur, also from December 1 (see online news July 26), making it the first carrier to serve Malaysia with the superjumbo. The airline will also commence A380 flights to Johannesburg on October 1, followed by Munich on January 1, 2012.

Routes currently served by one of Emirates’ 15 superjumbos include London Heathrow (double-daily), Manchester, Paris Charles de Gaulle, Toronto, Seoul, Bangkok, Beijing, Shanghai, Jeddah, New York, Hong Kong, Sydney and Auckland.

Regarding Kyiv, Etihad is code-sharing Ukraine International Airlines flight to Abu-Dabi, and has no intention to start serve city on it's own.
And as for Emirates, there were rumors about planned route, although I believe we won't see flight to Kyiv before 2012/2013

Qatar Airways launches daily non-stop flights to Kolkata

DOHA: Qatar Airways has widened its passenger flight network in India with the launch of daily non-stop scheduled services from Doha to Kolkata.
Formerly known as Calcutta, addition of the latest route reaffirms the carrier's commitment to India where it now operates 95 flights a week across 12 destinations.
In addition the Doha-based airline also operates twice-weekly freighter services to Kolkata, one of six Indian destinations where Qatar Airways already offers dedicated cargo flights.

The inaugural flight QR294, carrying a full load of passengers including international media, arrived at Kolkata's Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport earlier yesterday to a traditional water salute welcome following its five-hour flight from Doha.

Kolkata, capital of West Bengal state in eastern India, is the country's third largest city with a metropolis population of over 15 million. It is also the commercial capital of eastern India taking advantage of its lucrative location on the Hooghly River.

Home to a rich mix of creeds and cultures, Kolkata boasts colonial buildings, monuments, elegant buildings and India's only tram system - the oldest operating electric tram in Asia - reflecting the days of the British ruling India.

With excellent connections from Europe, Middle East, Africa, United States and Canada, Qatar Airways' newest passenger route is expected to appeal to expatriates returning to Kolkata, as well as the international business community having strong commercial links with the city and surrounding areas.

Kolkata now becomes part of Qatar Airways' large family of routes in India that also covers Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Trivandrum, Cochin, Kozhikode, Goa, Amritsar and Bengaluru (Bangalore).

Speaking about the airline's newest route launch, Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker said: "Introduction of our latest destination has been well timed to coincide with the busy holiday season as families travel to and from India, one of our most important markets."

Besides opening the new DXB-GIG-EZE flight, is Emirates considering other destinations in America ?

What about Etihad ? Does it have intentions of getting to South America ?

Apparently flights from Qatar to GRU and EZE have been very succesful.

Does the airline have further interests in this part of the world ?

Emirates will start it this year. QR will surely follow, if they have their planes in order.

Qatar Air first in line in Middle East for Dreamliner

Boeing Co will deliver the first 787 Dreamliner to the Middle East region in the second-quarter of 2012, starting with Qatar Airways, Boeing’s president for Middle East and North Africa said.

Next in line for deliveries will be Royal Jordanian, followed by Abu Dhabi’s Etihad Airways, Jeff Johnson told Bloomberg News in an interview in Doha on Wednesday.

Boeing has postponed deliveries of its 787 Dreamliner seven times, resulting in a three-year delay, after grappling with new materials, engine supply disruptions and other problems.

More than 830 of the jets are on order to 55 airlines, including Gulf carriers Qatar Airways, Gulf Air and Amman-based Royal Jordanian.



Akbar Al Baker, the CEO of Qatar Airways which has 30 787s on order and an option for 30 more, said in December he would consider cancelling the order if there were further delays in the plane’s delivery.

Royal Jordanian CEO Hussein Dabbas said in May the airline had suffered “huge” losses as a result of delays to the fuel-efficient 787, at a time of $100–plus oil.

The CEO of the Chicago-based planemaker told Arabian Business in June there was “no question” it had disappointed its customers, and said compensation talks were ongoing.

Qatar Airways is one of the largest buyers of new aircraft, with orders for 80 Airbus A350s , six Boeing 777-300ER and five Airbus SAS A380s, among others.

Boeing in May forecast a $4 trillion market for new aircraft over the next two decades, and named the fast-growing Middle East airlines as a major driver for growth.

The region will account for 2,520 – or 7.5 percent – of the aircraft orders expected to 2030, Boeing said, with a combined value of $450bn.

Qatar Airways to launch Sofia-Doha flight in September

The airline will service the destination four times a week, starting from September 14, with a stop-over in Bucharest. The company started flights to Romania's capital Bucharest in January.

Qatar Airlines has already started selling tickets for the destination.

As part of its aggressive entry into Europe, the airline has already started flights to Brussels, Stuttgart, Budapest, Venice. The company will also start flights to Oslo in October.

Currently, the air carrier services more than 100 routes in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, North and South America.

By 2013, the airline plans to offer direct flights to more than 120 destinations globally and to have a fleet of more than 120 aircraft.
