What is the future of Air France & Air India?

What is the future of Air France & Air India?

Flying is perhaps the only larger-than-life experience that many indulge in. Alas, as irony goes, companies providing air travel walk on a thin-line of profitability. On one hand, we devour meticulously planned in-flight menus, on the other, these companies fear labour unions and the ever-changing air fuel price. The airline industry also makes an interesting business story for another reason. It opened to privatisation a few decades ago. This ushered in private low-cost carriers (LCC) providing basic no-frill services at […]

Regional Connectivity Scheme

The Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA), has released the National Civil Aviation Policy 2016 (NCAP 2016). One of the objectives of NCAP 2016 is to “enhance regional connectivity through fiscal support and infrastructure development”.

India’s new aviation policies are breathing life into a once-ailing sector

That is what India’s new regional connectivity scheme, Ude Desh Ka Aam Nagrik (UDAN) or “let the common man fly”, promises to offer. It uses subsidies to improve the commercial viability of seldom-used […]

Whirling your way to glory – Heli Services

Daily as I flip through the papers, I can feel the exuberance of the Government as it launches multiple strategic initiatives to promote air travel. According to International Air Transport Association (IATA), India is the fastest growing domestic market globally, handling over 190 mn passengers. With the Regional Connectivity Scheme (UDAN) and inclusion of Heli taxis, no target is distinct for the Aviation industry. I am optimistic about the rapid growth potential of rotor wings in India vis-a vis the […]

One year of National Civil Aviation Policy

The National Civil Aviation Policy (NCAP) completes a year on 15th June 2017. The policy which was announced amidst fanfare last year was the result of extensive consulting and feedback from general public resulting in multiple iterations leading to the final policy. A year is too less to evaluate and look at the policy since the aviation business is capital and time intensive – both at the airline side in terms of fleet induction and at the airport side for infrastructure […]

Each one was asked to write his/her name on it using a marker pen. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room. Now these delegates were let in that room and asked to find the balloon which had their name written, within 5 minutes. Everyone was frantically searching for […]
