This happens because of the fair market created by open skies in the US. Ideally India should do that to increase the comfort of air travelers (without using common man's tax money like what AI does). But who will tell these policy makers that the the profits of few corporates is not what one should focus while making policies!!!

The diplomatic angle discussed in these forums is clearly proved wrong now (though there were lot of evidences even before this) !!

Mock drill in Mumbai airport tests response to air crashes
In a first-of-its-kind mock drill conducted outside the airport periphery, Mumbai International Airport Ltd. (MIAL) simulated an air crash at the SNDT Women’s University, Juhu, on Sunday.

The drill, to ensure preparedness at all times, saw MIAL coordinate with the Brihanamumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), GoAir and SNDT Women’s University.

As part of the simulated exercise, a domestic passenger aircraft on the approach path of runway 09-27 crashed at the university ground — which falls on the approach path — due to an engine failure. The drill lasted from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

To make the exercise realistic, a dummy aircraft was created and partially set on fire to match the magnitude of the situation, MIAL said in a statement.

The passenger-cum-freighter aircraft was also simulated to have been carrying cargo. which included dangerous goods that aggravated the fire. The incident resulted in 75 passenger ‘fatalities’ and 75 ‘injuries’.

Nearly 500 personnel of key emergency responders — State Disaster Management Authority, Mumbai Fire Brigade, National Disaster Response Force, Mumbai Police, hospitals and ambulance services — were in action. Various agencies of the airport and airlines were also deployed as observers to critically evaluate the response by the agencies to combat such emergencies in real time.

“Similarly, the local police were actively involved for panchnama of ‘deceased’ passengers allowing for movement of the ‘deceased’ to Cooper Hospital for post-mortem procedure. Further, arrangements were made for all rescued passengers to reunite with their family and friends after this traumatic incident,” the statement said.

An MIAL spokesperson said such exercises help them stay prepared for any situation, 24x7. “This is the first time an airport of this stature is conducting an emergency response exercise outside the premises of the airport and along with all its other stakeholders,” the spokesperson said.

MIAL said the objective of a real-time simulated mock exercise was to check the efficiency of procedures and responding personnel to minimise the effects of a real emergency while saving lives, property and environment without impacting the day-to-day lives of Mumbaikars.

In April 2019, MIAL had successfully conducted its first full-scale aerodrome emergency exercise late in the evening to check its own and all stakeholders’ preparedness. “Through these real-time mock exercises, it becomes important and integral for servicing bodies like MIAL to work towards the overall betterment of the passengers,” the spokesperson said.

AAI opts out of race to buy shares from Bidvest, ACS
MUMBAI: Airports Authority of India has decided not to exercise its right to bu y shares from its partners Bidvest and Airports Company South Africa (ACSA). The two South African companies have been trying to sell their combined shareholding in Mumbai International Airport Ltd (MIAL) and exit the 13-year old joint venture.

The arbitration court has also given GVKNSE 3.15 %, which operates Mumbai airport, time till October 30 to deposit the purchase price of the shares (Rs 1,248 crore) in an interest bearing escrow account failing which Bidvest has the freedom to sell shares to any third party they wish to after securing necessary regulatory approvals.

As per the original shareholder agreement between MIAL’s partners, AAI has right of first refusal over the Bidvest and ASCA stakes. “The matter was deliberated at the appropriate levels and finally AAI has decided not to purchase the shares which are subject matter of the present proceedings, pending before this Arbitral Tribunal either from Bid Services Division (Mauritius) or of M/S ACSA Global Limited,” said the interim order of the arbitration panel that ET has reviewed.

A successful disaster recovery/ business continuity mock drill will help the companies reduce insurance premiums considerably in developed countries. Not sure about India though.

Jet Airways grounding changed our India growth plans: Virgin Atlantic India head

The grounding of Jet Airways (India) Limited, which had a code share partnership with Virgin Atlantic, changed the India growth plans of the British airline, prompting it to start its own services between London and Mumbai, the airline’s country manager (India) David Hodges told Mint.
“We had a code-share partnership with Jet Airways, and we planned to grow that," Hodges said adding, “Unfortunately, the grounding of Jet Airways changed our growth plans."

Virgin Atlantic will now start its own daily flights between London and Mumbai from 27 October to utilize the space vacated by Jet Airways, which operated three daily flights on this high demand sector. Jet Airways also flew a daily flight between Mumbai and Manchester.

Why not they try LGW to fill the gqp? British FSCs can make LGW work unlike Indian airlines.

Who cares about 'filling a gap'.
This is all about Virgin's rivalry with British Airways and their desire to fight the National carrier on BA's home turf at LHR..

Mumbai airport main runway to be shut for five months

New Delhi: Airlines are staring at a substantial rescheduling, diversions and cancellations of flights at the second busiest airport in the country -- the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA) in Mumbai -- as its main runway undergoes partial shutdown for close to five months during peak hours due to re-carpeting work.

The main runway at CSIA, which can handle at least 46 flights an hour, will be shut off for commercial flight operations between 9 am and 5.30 pm from 1 November 2019 to 28 March 2020 due to re-carpeting work, a spokesperson of Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL), which operates the CSIA told Mint on Friday.

As a result, all operations of the airport will be shifted to the secondary runway, which can handle at least 36 flights an hour.

"The airlines have been informed about the unavailability of the primary runway at the Mumbai airport about a year back, so that they could prepare their operations accordingly," the MIAL spokesperson said adding that airlines have been meeting with the airport operator every month to discuss the upcoming situation.

On a normal day, the CSIA handles as many as 940 flights. The airport can operate only one runway considering that simultaneous operation of its cross runways is too complicated. In comparison, New Delhi airport has three near-parallel runways.

"The airport authorities will be working with the ATC (air traffic control) to maximize the efficiency of the secondary airport during the time that the primary airport will be unavailable due to re-carpeting work," the spokesperson added.

Meanwhile, passengers are expected to face a double whammy as the peak season for travel -- November 2019 to January 2020 -- falls within the time frame of the main runway closure.

"The main runway closure will definitely impact the overall capacity and this will obviously lead to ticket price hikes in the Mumbai sector," said Sharat Dhall, Chief Operating Officer (B2C) at Yatra Online Pvt Ltd.

"With runway closure falling within the peak travel season, ticket prices which would otherwise be high, will soar further due to reduction of overall seats in the sector," Dhall added.

"GoAir is currently working with MIAL on finalizing the effective flight schedule for minimizing the inconvenience/impact of runway closure on the passengers. The airline currently operates 96 flights daily to/from Mumbai. GoAir may have to cancel couple of flights owing to the runway closure," a GoAir spokesperson said.


The airport was earlier partially shutdown from 7 February to 30 March, following repair works at the intersection of the two runways, leading to closures during peak hours. This had lead to an increase in airfares by about 5-10% for flights originating or landing at Mumbai, due to the reduction of overall supply of seats, as airlines operated fewer planes during the period.
