The flight departs CCU at 02:55 hrs and return flight starts from Bangkok at 08:50 hrs. Its a daily connection using B737-800 Arcraft.

Get a feeling the Bangkok sector is becoming saturated and over-served. Around 49-51 weekly flights combining all Airlines. (2 each of Indigo Spicejet, 1of Air-Asia and Thai Airways, thrice weekly of Air India and 4-5 of Thai Smile).

I would love to be proved wrong though !!!

Btw any updates or data as to how the Indigo CCU-SIN flight is doing. Its been a year since it started last year on Sept 15th ??

About CCU-SIN route :

DGCA Q1 traffic 2018 (http://dgca.nic.in/pub/international...18/PDF/4.pdf): SINGAPORE KOLKATA 15036 18129

DGCA Q1 traffic 2019 (http://dgca.nic.in/pub/international...19/PDF/4.pdf): SINGAPORE KOLKATA 25547 29858

So its 67% increase. Surely Indigo had its piece of share, since SQ didn't increase capacity.

This is the first direct connection between Kolkata and Canton (Guangzhou). China Eastern connects Kolkata and Kunming.

While the Chinese airlines rely on connections on the Chinese side, 6E relies on connections on the Indian side.

Obviously CCU is the first natural choice to cater to the whole country. The flight timing confirms it. It is very evident that 6E is looking to establish CCU as a hub for the East.

There may be some point to point connections when the demand warrants it ; but it is a good strategy to hub the traffic through CCU till the time the volume picks up. DEL could also be a hub but I believe 6E has a very good domestic network at CCU to leverage its geographical advantage (that is quite a big advantage for an LCC as the increase in fuel cost in hubbing at DEL would be quite significant).

btw - India- China has a huge SME traffic, majority of which originates from India rather than China. This traffic is distributed predominantly among top 8-10 cities in India and top 20-25 cities in China (quite fragmented)

Sort of an anti climax - Indigo is suspending CCU SIN for a period of 25days.

Perhaps it needs the aircraft in a sector that offers better yield. As long as this is a temporary measure, nothing much to worry about.
