The Air Asia deal should make everyone clear that there is no need of 51% ownership for effective management control (True for CIAL and KIAL too).

But I really dont know why this fuss on a foreign airline controlling a commercial airline in India, when foreign entities are allowed in many sectors. Recently India allowed foreign ships to transport containers within the ports of India!!! Point to be noted here is that only a foreign airline is not allowed but a foreign entity is allowed to take more than 51%. Completely no logic.

There is no capital within India for investments and allowing foreign airlines will bring in more expertise and the much needed capital into the sector. The bottomless pit called AI will also get a solution. Hope government is transparent when it rebids AI. None will bid for AI, if they fear that government will interfere in the decisions. Which airline will like to retain SFO, SYD and other routes which were started just because the PM visited those places!!!

SFO is one of the best decisions AI ever made!

Really not!!! We will know if AI ever gets privatised. And it is bit puzzling why the profitable American airlines never thought about linking SFO with India non-stop.

AI doesn't have a clue of its financials,let alone standalone profitability of routes. Its losses have been widening continuously, though it merrily announced reduction in losses last year just to revise it back to higher levels when the final financials came in. There may be a shock waiting this year.

Frankly speaking, there is no hope that AI is making profits on any routes!!!

Technically, its a rumour. But at-least we know that a public announcement of Vistara's wide-body fleet is just around the corner!

Boeing said to win order from Vistara


Boeing Co.’s Dreamliner is poised to win an order from Vistara, the Indian affiliate of Singapore Airlines Ltd., dealing a blow to Airbus SE’s competing A330neo, according to people familiar with the development.

Vistara opted for six 787s with an option to buy four more, according to the people, who asked not to be identified as the information isn’t public. Vistara is considering between the 787-9 and the 787-10 version, which could fly non-stop to European destinations such as London, said one of the people.

London and Singapore are must-haves for a full service international airline with good brand image. I hope it deploys wide bodies for SIN (I think naturally it should, given the SIN parentage)

Not surprised that the Club had no record of the demonstration flights.

Flying machines were a mere novelty in the early 20th century. The regular public didn't see it as important and lumped it in the same category as Jugglers and Acrobats and Snake Charmers! Practically nobody believed that it would be the future of transportation. Hence, the club, like many others, didn't really see the need of even recording the incident in the form of a plaque or something.

Indeed, the only journals that tried to keep track of public demonstration flights were the Flying related magazines based in Europe and America! 'Flight International' magazine has a beautiful online archive of its issues going back a Century!!

Excuse me. How do you equate a "demo of the latest gizmo to the public" with "Top State"?

And how do you know that some "cutting Edge concept of Physics" isn't currently being demonstrated at some Physics club somewhere in Kolkata??

There were demonstrations in those days and there are demonstrations today. Its just that the aam junta is too busy looking at their little screens.

Innovators frequently demonstrate their inventions to the public in order to seek out financiers. Flying a 'rope and fabric machine' around the golf club doesn't put Kolkata on the aviation map any more than a visiting circus puts it on the Global Circus Map.

Is it time to look beyond trading of ASK for RDG & merge UDAN & RDG in long term?
Last few weeks have seen the media report the possibility of a tweak in the National Civil Aviation Policy (NCAP) to allow trading of Available Seat Kilometers (ASKs) between airlines to satisfy the mandatory requirement of Category II and Category IIA routes as defined in the Route Dispersal Guidelines (RDG). The permission to trade had been “inadvertently” left out from the new policy and something which was encouraged pre-2016 has completely stopped now.

I have had special interest in RDG for two reasons. First because some of my suggestions made it to the NCAP and second because I worked for an airline which inherited the complex route network of another airline and operated flights to stations with frequency as low as once a week. I have closely seen how the RDG affects the airline network planning. (Read: Revised route dispersal guidelines in India)

Do we require policy changes and is there a possibility or merging schemes to have a better offering for the airlines and customers which makes government schemes attractive and fulfils the governments objectives?

West Bengal has fallen behind most of the states of India. I am here talking of all factors to judge a state like HDI, industrialization, per capita income.

It is also a well known fact West Bengal was one of the most developed states during British times ( top 3) because of the availability of natural resources like coal, water, minerals etc which led to its industrialization and overall prosperity of the state. And this is one of the reasons Brtishers chose to make it their capital and establish British East India company there.

Having demo flights just after 7 years of invention of first aircraft by Wright Brothers is a big achievement. I am not making West Bengal as the top state of British times just on the basis of this demonstration. But this demonstration confirms that West Bengal was a top state of India since they chose West Bengal for demonstration.

Such demonstrations may be happening in today's West Bengal in some physics club as you say.. I don't know... And I don't want to know... Because in most of the other criteria West Bengal has become a laggard state.

See, thats where I disagree with you. It was no "achievement" on the part of the city or state or whatever if a demonstration by outsiders was held there. Even the local papers heavily err by claiming that the incident "put Kolkata on the aviation map".

Flights to Manila

PAL plans to launch Delhi and Mumbai services in Sep-2018

Philippine Airlines (PAL) president Jaime Bautista, speaking to CAPA on the sidelines of the IATA AGM and World Air Transport Summit, stated (03-Jun-2018) PAL plans to launch services to Delhi and Mumbai in Sep-2018 using its new fleet of long haul configured A321neos. Delhi and Mumbai will each initially be served three times weekly and will be the second and third long haul routes for PAL’s A321neos after Brisbane, which will transition from A340s to A321neos in Jul-2018. PAL took delivery of its first long haul configured A321neo at the end of May-2018 and is slated to take another five aircraft by the end of 2018. Mr Bautista said the six aircraft will be used for Brisbane, Delhi, Mumbai, Sapporo, Sydney and Melbourne. PAL plans to launch Sapporo in Sep-2018 or Oct-2018.

Our aviation market is booming but only ~10 airports are at annual 10 million pax. China has ~40. I suppose our double digit growth story will continue for a while.

Even that 10 is because of the ultra low fares offered by our airlines compromising profitability some times.

There is no comparison with China as India has lot of work on per capita income front. It is still one of the poorest countries in the world, appearing at the bottom of the chart with other South Asian neighbors and Sub Saharan Africa in per capita ranking list . India's prominence lies in volumes (on account of huge population) and a hope in the form of good growth rate in recent past.

China's per capita income is much higher than what is published as China controls USD exchange rate artificially. It should be atleast 6 times that of India.

The poor per-capita income also means that the country can't support ultra long haul routes.

UDAN's side effects

UDAN 's side effects . Some lessons .
New Belagavi airport will shutdown from July1 because of UDAN at Hubbali airport.
Solution : Belagavi now needs UDAN , level playing field to compete , xyz etc..



-------------------------------------------------

Belagavi airport loses out as SpiceJet seeks Udan benefits in Hubballi

BELAGAVI: The Airport here, which was upgraded at a cost of Rs 141.44 crore last year to handle bigger aircrafts like Airbus-320 and got a bigger terminal with a capacity to handle 300 passengers during peak hours, will remain a white elephant from July 1.
SpiceJet is going to discontinue the only operational flight from to Bengaluru from July 1
The airline has already shifted three flights operating from to the to get the benefits of the Udaan scheme of the central government. .
It will also reduce operations of the only flight running from here to half by this month end. SpiceJet started operating flights to operating Bengaluru and Mumbai from Belagavi and added Chennai to the list in September 2017. It also had a direct flight to Hyderabad in the month of March this year. All the flights were receiving patronage.

SpiceJet’s decision to shift these flights from Belagavi to Hubballi has shocked Belagavi residents. With this, 75-year-old airport will turn into a white elephant.
Local politicians including MP Suresh Angadi, Rajya Sabha member Prabhakar Kore and members of industrial fraternity are engaged in correspondence with authorities of central government seeking inclusion of Belagavi airport under Udaan scheme, which is meant for small airports.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in a recent election rally in Belagavi, had assured to include the Belagavi airport under the Udaan scheme.
During the inauguration of upgraded airport, then civil aviation minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju had also assured of considering the airport for the scheme.
The residents of Belgavi are confused over how the Hubballi airport, which was upgraded after the Sambra airport, got selected under the Udaan scheme and are questions the local leaders about it.
Belagavi (South) MLA Abhay Patil has decided to take a delegation to meet the prime minister and the civil aviation minister in New Delhi with a memorandum containing the signature of 52 MLAs seeking the inclusion of the Belagavi airport under Udaan scheme.
The upgraded Belagavi airport comprises a new terminal building, operational area with later equipment, a runway which has been extended by 470 metres, a new isolation bay, new apron and a new ATC cum fire station cum technical block. The state government provided 370 acres of land to the airport for the upgrade.

Please note that this is his personal opinion because some pockets are not getting filled. Lol. Anyway, by far, India has not received any official notification from IATA. The day it receives, then India will reciprocate accordingly. Till then India will protect its business interests first.
