Perhaps yes. India has already created quite a dent without any official statement on the two countries which went against India on the Kashmir issue. For Malaysia, a simple rumour of increasing duties on the import of palm from Malaysia did the trick. The traders turned to a keep Indonesia, who have responded well. While India did not make any official statement on this, Mahathir Mohammad released a few statements. Turkey was denied access to some extremely high-value lucrative defence contracts. As for aviation, TK still code-shares with AI, and gives AI some good revenue, for instance on the AI 127/6 HYD-DEL-ORD flight. Indigo is still getting good business from TK. It is true that TK gets more feed to IST, as you correctly point out.

With Qatar the situation is different, in general Qatari government has refrained from criticizing India on the Kashmir issue, plus there are lots of Indians who work in Qatar. This code share should be expanded to benefit Indigo.
QR is a bit cautious on the one-way code-shares, but Indigo is getting quite a good deal here, anyway. Indigo possibly wants this as a start to a good relationship, to get code-shares and traffic beyond Qatar.

increase in delivery rate of A320neo / A321neo, crew shortage...

I'm just curious, wouldn't these be pretty contradictory reasons?

I would say "news" from propagandist TV channels that would like to project all kind of mythomania and hollow claims as truth in front of a hapless society, even at the age of internet that has made the world such as small, connected place.

Malaysian PM gave discounts to Indian buyers and Malaysia was anxious enough to avoid further talk of Indian boycott. Indian economy is now much larger than before and trade restrictions from India does have an effect. India Turkey trade is not much, but India can easily restrict it further, and Turkey's economy is not that good either.

India's position on Kashmir is absolute, almost every country retaliates if their core positions/beliefs are criticized and India is no exception.

Putting an entire population under virtual arrest and denying them basic human rights for 4 months and counting is a "core belief"?!

A `dent' is a small setback, but a collapse or a crash is something drastic. That dent has happened, but not the collapse or crash that you refer to.

On time issues with Indigo (and also Spice Jet) using buses for boarding and deboarding.

Recently went on Indigo to Trivandrum and to Hyderabad. In both cases the plane landed 5 to 10 minutes late. However it took another 30 minutes for us deboard and reach the terminal since Indigo (and Spice Jet and other airlines) use buses instead of jet bridges. Indigo announced it as on time arrival (less than 15 minutes late).

However whenever they count on time arrivals, they count it when the first passenger gets off the plane to board on the bus. This is unfair for those airlines who use jet bridges, where the passenger reaches the terminal sooner than those who use buses.

DGCA should look into this.

IndiGo to phase-out second-hand A320s by YE22

11.02.2020

IndiGo Airlines plans to retire all 42 of its second-hand A320-200s in 2022, Chief Financial Officer of parent InterGlobe Aviation Aditya Pande said during the quarterly earnings call.

"By December 2022, we expect all of them to go away. We will start returning these aircraft starting 2021, so you will see the proportion of the A320ceo that are leased and used going down in our fleet. And as we get to December 2022, we have all these aircraft returned by that time," he said.

He clarified that the plan only concerned aircraft added as used equipment by IndiGo Airlines, not the A320-200s the Indian LCC took directly from Airbus.

According to the ch-aviation fleets advanced module, IndiGo Airlines currently operates 123 A320-200s. The entire subfleet is 9.8 years old on average. However, the 42 second-hand jets waiver above this average with the oldest being almost 18 years old. The aircraft were previously operated by a range of airlines around the world, including Aegean Airlines (one aircraft), Air Berlin (three), Air Via (one), Alitalia (one), American Airlines (two), Avion Express (two), Cyprus Airways (1947) (one), Freebird Airlines (one), GoAir (two), Jetstar Pacific (one), LATAM Airlines (two), LATAM Airlines Brasil (one), Qatar Airways (four), Rossiya (one), Royal Brunei Airlines (four), Scoot (three), Spring Airlines (one), SriLankan Airlines (one), Tigerair Australia (one), Tigerair Philippines (one), TransAsia Airways (one), Turkish Airlines (two), VietJetAir (one), VivaAerobus (two), Volaris (one), and Vueling Airlines (one).

The oldest of the eighty-one A320-200s directly from Airbus is almost 12 years of age.

The Indian LCC also operates ninety-six A320-200neo and ten A321-200neo, as well as twenty-five ATR72-600s.

Chief Executive Ronojoy Dutta pointed out that the carrier's fleet of A320neo Family aircraft gives it the flexibility to serve markets as distant as Denpasar, Barcelona El Prat, or Seoul Incheon.

"Wide-body is a project that is ongoing. We keep studying it with different perspectives. No decision has been made," he said.

He elaborated that through using narrowbodies of the newest generation, the airline can serve medium-haul markets with higher frequency.

"You don't need a widebody to go to the Middle East. We have enough A321neo to serve the Middle East quite properly. And please also remember, traffic tends to fragment by frequency, not by seats. So would I rather have two frequencies or one large wide-body? I think I will get more market share by going with frequency," Dutta said.

The airline has a further 236 A320neo and 388 A321neo on firm order from Airbus and is, by far, the world's largest A320neo Family customer.

https://www.ch-aviation.com/portal/news/86588-indias-indigo-puts-long-haul-on-hold-pending-a321neoxlrs

IndiGo puts long-haul on hold pending A321neo(XLR)s

IndiGo has abandoned plans to add widebody aircraft and will defer the launch of flights to Europe until it takes its first A321-200neo(XLR) narrowbodies starting in 2023, The Economic Times has reported.

"There is no precedent of low-cost carriers operating international flights on twin-aisle aircraft [or they] have not been successful even if they have. This is primarily because fundamentals for low-cost carriers do not work on a dual-aisle aircraft. Hence, we will be launching flights to Europe and others only on an A321neo(XLR)," an unnamed official at the LCC said.

IndiGo Airlines previously considered adding A330s to launch flights to destinations beyond the range of the A320-200neo and A321neo.

However, despite the change of plan regarding the type of aircraft used for long-haul services, IndiGo Airlines still intends to equip "around twenty" A321neo(XLR)s with a two-class configuration for these services. Currently, all 254 aircraft operated by the carrier are outfitted in a single-class all-economy layout, the ch-aviation fleets advanced module shows.

The official underlined that while the A321neo(XLR) would have the range to operate from India to London and Tokyo, there were other interesting markets which have thus far attracted less attention.

"While everyone seems to be focused on Europe and London, we see a lot of market in Africa, China, and other parts of the world too. We will soon be announcing flights to Moscow," the source said.

IndiGo Airlines will also look at launching long-haul flights from secondary cities in India rather than from major gateways.

The airline is the world's largest customer for the A320neo Family. It already operates ninety-six A320neo and ten A321neo, and has a further 236 A320neo and 388 A321neo (including the extra-long-range variant) on firm order from Airbus.

This is the bread and butter for Indian carriers - service to/from Middle East and Vistara is missing out and Indigo is going in full strength. Vistara needs this traffic if it hopes to get big. Even Spice Jet has been slow to expand. AI is hobbled due to revenue constraints.

Surprised that Indigo cancelled CCU-Doha, before even starting.

AI can become a bigger player in the India-Gulf sector but they are more focused on loss-making routes to the Briminghams, Viennas, Madrids, Tel Avivs and Milans of the world.

How about AIX? Surprising that they aren't doing better than they are, given that they were created solely to connect South India to the Gulf.

AIX was setup in a way that at least in the initial years, what could have been their profits were plowed back into the parent, so once they hit the 18 or 20 aircraft threshold, the growth was stunted until recently.

For their size, and being a government enterprise, they are doing good, I guess. Profitable.

The way the AI merger happened also put kibosh on ICs Guif/ASEAN plans.

I don't disagree about the gulf but I feel like private carriers also are there and deserve some of those routes. So I think the Gulf is covered and divided up. Ai flying to those other destinations brings in tourists and helps better connect DEL and India to the world. I am fine with that. It is a GOI enterprise, profit can be calculated in different ways. The GOI bringing in tourists and business travelers is also a good thing.

Travel is affected and will be affected for the next few months and may be affected even in long term. Should'nt Indigo pause and stop ordering new aircraft, except as a replacement.

If the airline suffers severe losses later, it will ask for a taxpayer bailout or banks may have to accept a loss (same as a taxpayer bailout). May be GOI should caution all airlines to conserve cash and be more conservative in adding new flights especially to cities already served by other Indian carriers.
