Is there a comparison between AP capital and Hyderabad development?:unsure::unsure:. One has to wonder if they are really at a level to compete with Hyderabad. The catchment area of HYD you mention is also facing heavy competition from BLR, MAA. The reason is obvious here. One has to wonder how many people in Andhra Pradesh are using HYD? People on the South Coast in particular are using MAA for transit and overseas travel. People of Rayalaseema use BLR.
Andhra capital doesn't have to be neck and neck with Hyderabad. It could be good enough to take away investment from the region that flows into Hyderabad. Amaravati nearly did that before Jagan. And improved connection to middle east by Qatar, Etihad or Emirates from Vijayawada would mean they don't have to depend on HYD.
Rayalaseema, each district is closer to one of the 3 metro cities, the traffic is split between BLR (Anantapur, Chittoor), MAA (Chittoor, Kadapa) and HYD (Kurnool). And AP capital doesn't change anything for this area regarding airline travel.

If you compare domestic pax figures in Oct every year for the past six years, the difference between Kolkata and Hyderabad is inching closer and closer. In the next couple of years, HYD should get past CCU even in its most busiest month, establishing clear dominance as the fourth biggest domestic airport in the country.

MonthCCUHYD HYD as a percentage of CCU
Oct 2021 1,207,851 1,155,790 96%
Oct 2020 800,602 755,609 94%
Oct 2019 1,741,150 1,561,707 90%
Oct 2018 1,660,866 1,492,375 90%
Oct 2017 1,524,034 1,220,747 80%
Oct 2016 1,214,107 993,542 82%
I think this will continue in the future as well. That’s why I didn’t hope for 4th place. We do not trust this 4th place in domestic pax until neck to neck with BLR. HYD needs at least 30% more ATMs to keep that position. Let's see. This FY ending determines the real position of the HYD.

We need to keep in mind that our airport capacity is just 12 mppa as of now where as CCU has a capacity of 25 mppa with both airports handling similar traffic. This has an impact on the way airlines think like ticket prices and adding new connections. Once the expansion is complete im pretty sure we'll seal the 4th place. By the way when is GMR gng to complete expansion on the new domestic pier of the terminal, looking forward to it.

  1. The (unofficial) capacity at HYD is probably closer to 20+ mppa with the 2 interim terminals for Intl Departures and DOM Remote Arrivals. In fact, taken together they are almost like one full terminal (forecourt, check-in, immigration, security and baggage makeup area for Intl and baggage reclaim for DOM) but I guess since they are temporary in nature, GMR does not want to talk about it or put a number on it
  2. My expectation is for the partial opening of DOM pier extension in Q4FY22
  3. Full expansion I expect will be commissioned only in 2023 sometime. Guess no one including GMR, L&T or AERA are in a hurry to build out the project fully, in particular the international section.
  4. AERA has made it a point to go around the country asking all the airports to seriously look at what parts of their ongoing capex could be deferred or dropped to make sure the tariffs don’t spike at a per pax level given the weak traffic outlook.

Hyderabad’s almost central location(which could be a boon in the form of a transit hub)is also a reason for low domestic pax whereas Bangalore is too far for any place north of Hyderabad to go in a train or bus. It takes around 2 days to reach Delhi from Bangalore while it takes around a day from Hyderabad even MP,Orissa,WB,Bihar and other states with major migrant population are punishingly far.

That’s a good point. Bangalore migrant labour takes flight.

Yes true.. Any information about average daily footfall of HYD this month? any expectations?

Passengers fall prey to ‘hunter’ cabbies at Hyderabad airport

With unauthorised cab drivers nudging out the app-based cabbies, the passengers arriving at the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) are going through a harrowing experience. As soon as travellers arrive, the unauthorised cabbies, just like the autowallahs at railway stations, crowd around them. As no app-based cab drivers are available, the passengers ride home grudgingly in the unauthorised cabs.

The app-based cab drivers are reluctant to go to the airport as they cannot compete with the unauthorised colleagues and have to return without customers for nearly 20 to 25 km, which they cannot afford.
