Air india will add something by end of year if DC flight response is good.
What i have heard is that probably one of LA, houston or dallas would be added.
I would personally say dallas, right now eithad and emirates are killing, they are handling lots of passengers at the moment from Dallas.

Folks your opinion?
I am not so sure about LA, dont know indian traffic from there.

Can someone explain How GVK handles BOM without any UDF while GMR charges an UDF of 495 INR from any domestic flight from HYD?
BOM offset the losses incurred on abolishing UDF (which was ordered by AERA) By increasing charges elsewhere..

"From an optics perspective, the abolition of UDF for domestic and a sharp 59% reduction in UDF for international passengers looks good. On the other hand, landing charges for A320s have been more than doubled for both domestic and international flights. The aerobridge charges for aircraft other than A-320s have also been doubled or trebled based on size. In effect what has been reduced for passengers may be recovered from airlines. Given the cutthroat competition in the Mumbai routes, we feel airlines may absorb some of the increased charges and pass on the rest to the passengers. Overall, the arrangement appears good for passengers but not so for the airlines,"

Embraer, Air India to set up MRO in Begumpet Airport to maintain its brand of private and business jets in the entire Southeast Asian region.

Brazilian aerospace major Embraer has partnered with state-owned Air India to set up a maintenance and repair MRO facility to maintain its brand of private and business jets in the entire Southeast Asian region.

The airline's engineering subsidiary, Air India Engineering Services Limited, has been mandated this task under an initial pact signed recently, airline sources said.

The proposed facility is expected to come up at the Begumpet airport in Secunderabad in the southern state of Telangana, they said.

"Embraer came to us because they are planning to sell 40 aircraft in the region by 2018 and they need to have a maintenance system in place for those planes," said an Air India official.

"AIESL agreed to develop the Begumpet airport for this purpose, provided Embraer declares it as the preferred destination for MRO to all its customers," the official added.

Air India Engineering Services Limited (AIESL) has the requisite expertise in the fast-growing Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) segment of the aviation sector as it already runs as many as six such facilities across airports in India, including one at Nagpur in Maharashtra in collaboration with US aircraft maker Boeing Inc.

As per the pact, Embraer will provide training as well as 'heavy discounts' to AIESL on tools and equipment.

The MRO facility will also allow Air India to utilise its existing hangars at Begumpet which have been lying unused ever since the airport ceased operating scheduled flights in 2008.

Last year, the government in its Civil Aviation Policy offered infrastructure status to the MRO industry and promised several incentives to develop India as a hub for these services.

The sops included exemption from customs duty for procuring aircraft maintenance tools.

The policy also allowed foreign aircraft brought to India for MRO work to stay for a period of six months, which can be extended after permission from DGCA.

Now defunct regional airline Air Costa was the only Indian carrier with two Embraer aircraft in its fleet.

AIESL carries out third party MRO activities for nearly thirty airlines, including domestic carriers like GoAir, Air Vistara, Jet Airways and SpiceJet. This is apart from the repair work for planes owned by the defence forces as well as VVIP aircraft.

With Indian carriers expected to increase their fleet size to 1,740 plane in the next 20 years, the domestic MRO market is projected to be worth USD 5.2 billion by 2026, according to leading consultancy KPMG.

It also projects over ten fold increase during the next ten years in MRO industry's revenues from the current USD 92 million to USD 975 million.

GMR may sell 25% stake in Hyderabad Airport to Abu Dhabi’s sovereign wealth fund

The debt-laden GMR group is close to selling a part of its controlling stake in the Hyderabad airport to Abu Dhabi’s sovereign wealth fund.

The group is likely to offload 20-25 per cent of its stake in the airport at an enterprise value of $700 million (roughly ₹4,500 crore).

Malaysia Airports Holdings could also make a partial exit through the deal.

While a representative for the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority declined to comment via email, a spokesperson for the GMR Group said: “We do not comment on speculative information.”

Industry sources and investment banking sources, however, confirmed that the talks between the two are almost complete.

GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd (GHIAL) is currently a joint venture comprising GMR Group (63 per cent), the Government of India (13 per cent), Government of Telangana (13 per cent) and Malaysia Airports Holdings (11 per cent).

GMR Infrastructure had reported standalone net loss of ₹382 crore in the December 2016 quarter. At the end of the FY16, GMR Infrastructure reported total long-term borrowings of ₹47,550.11 crore. The airport vertical is GMR’s core business, contributing close to 49 per cent of revenue for FY16 at ₹6,540 crore. Total operating revenues for FY16 stood at ₹13,357 crore.

GMR Infrastructure’s shares closed at ₹17.55 on the BSE on Thursday, up 2.03 per cent from their previous close.
