IndiGo says not in talks with Qatar Airways for stake sale

February 12, 2015

IndiGo today said it was not in "talks" with any airline including Qatar Airways for a stake sale, a month after the gulf carrier's chief executive Akbar Al Baker expressed his desire to invest in the Indian company.

"Indigo is not even in talks with Qatar...The question does not arise. Its kind of them (Qatar) to say that...

"Its a decision not happening at my level.. We're not in talks with anyone," IndiGo President Aditya Ghosh told reporters on the sidelines of an event here.

I dont know where are they going with this.

Nearly 70% of snag-prone Neo engines with Indian carriers changed

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/business/india-business/nearly-70-of-snag-prone-neo-engines-changed/articleshow/58352094.cms

NEW DELHI: As many as 73% of the snag-prone Pratt & Whitney (PW) engines powering the 26 Airbus A-320 new engine option (Neo) currently with Indian carriers have been replaced by the US aerospace company.

Top aviation sources say PW has changed 38 engines in India so far on planes of IndiGo and GoAir — which use the combination of A-320 Neo and PW engines — due to a spate of technical snags in the equipment since last year.

IndiGo and GoAir currently have 21 and five A-320 Neos, respectively.

Of the 52 PW engines on the 26 A-320 Neos in India so far, 38 — 73% — have been changed.

"The changed engines belong to the first lot of planes delivered to the airlines. As problems arose in its engines for the A-320 Neo globally, PW started making changes.

So the problems, which are yet to be contained fully, were more in the first lot of engines and they needed to be changed. The incidence of snags has gone down after the engines were changed on such a large scale," said a source.

IndiGo — Airbus' biggest customer of the A-320 Neo with 430 of these planes on order — and GoAir did not comment on the massive engine replacement by PW.


AI also uses A-320 Neo but uses CFM engines and so will Vistara when it gets its Neos.


"This is an issue that must be addressed by PW. We will not comment on this," said an official of one of these airlines.

In a statement, PW said it "with the support of Airbus, is actively working with our customers in India and we are supporting them in their daily operations.


The PW PurePower GTF engine employs advanced technology and has been in operation for more than one year. It has more than 100,000 hours of passenger service and is utilized by 13 operators flying 250 flights per day to over 100 destinations on four continents."

IndiGo to launch flights between Bengaluru and Singapore

IndiGo, India’s largest carrier by domestic market share, announced further expansion of its International services yesterday. The airline announced next set of flights to Doha and flights between Bengaluru & Singapore. The flights will be effective 30th June 2017.

Rival Jet Airways has started flights between these two cities in December 2016. While Jet Airways operates a day time departure, IndiGo has opted for a late evening departure from Bengaluru and early morning departure from Singapore.

IndiGo had launched services to Singapore with flights from Delhi & Mumbai, only to scale it down to a single daily departure from Chennai. The airline started second daily Chennai – Singapore flight in March’17.

I had taken the 9W flight from BLR to SIN and back in Jan. Load factors were in the 70-80% range. However what was interested was, that a majority of the pax were connecting onward to 9w code share flights on QF, GA,NH, KE and VN. I myself was flying onward to CGK on a 9W codeshare flight with GA. With Jetstar and Fiji codeshare, these numbers are bound to grow.

I am not sure if the BLR-SIN O&D numbers are sufficient to sustain a daily flight for 6E.

9W indeed is banking on code shares ex-SIN to fill up the wide body flights from DEL/BOM and the 737 from BLR. Even I wonder if the O&D is enough to sustain daily considering that not all OD will shift

IndiGo signs term sheet for 50 ATR72-600

Domestic market leader IndiGo today announced that it has signed a term sheet with turbo prop manufacturer ATR for 50 ATR72-600 aircraft. The first seven aircraft are expected to join the fleet this financial year and the airline expects to take the fleet to 20 aircraft by end of 2018. The airline would bid for routes under UDAN – The Regional Connectivity Scheme.

The first ATR72-600 was delivered to launch carrier Royal Air Maroc in 2011. The biggest change in the ATR72-600 over its earlier version -500 is the new avionic suite and “Glass cockpit” replacing the Honeywell-Collins deck with avionics from Thales.

Term-sheet or a Letter of Intent (LOI) is a legal document which finalizes the basics including price and other incentives. This is also followed up with a small payment. The term sheet specifies the target date for the final signing of documentation. In the past the LOI between Airbus and IndiGo had lapsed but the airline went ahead and placed the order based on the previous LOI, thanks primarily to the relations between Airbus and IndiGo.

The airline expected to close fiscal year 2018 with 170 aircraft, an increase of 39 aircraft over the fiscal end of 2017. The airline will continue to face challenges for expanding in one of the fastest growing but plagued by congestion at all major airports.

Battle Royale for Tier 2,3, and 4 cities is well and truly beginning... Will be interesting to see how Jet Airways and Spicejet reacts. Small time players will simply vanish...

I 100% agree with you. The US system of using independent small carriers for regional routes. I feel like Indian carriers will only work with another airline if its a ME3 Smile
