Delhi-based Zexus Air likely to get wings

Sep 15, 2016

Delhi-based Zexus Air is on the verge of getting a national scheduled airline permit with the aviation regulator coming out with a public notice to invite comments. This is usually the last stage before granting the license.

Zexus along with two others – Air One Aviation Pvt. Ltd and Premier Air – had received a no-objection certificate aviation ministry in 2014 to launch nationwide operations subject to clearance from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).

“M/s Zexus Air Services Pvt. Ltd. has applied for grant of Air Operators Permit (Scheduled) for the purpose of providing Scheduled Air Transport Services in India,” the DGCA notice said. “The documents submitted by the applicant are being processed in this office. In order to comply with the requirements of Schedule XI of Aircraft Rules 1937, a notice is hereby given to the public and all the persons likely to be affected by the grant of this permit to submit their objections or suggestions, if any, on M/S Zexus Air Services Pvt. Ltd. within 15 Days of the issue of this notice,” it said.

According to the Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation (CAPA) website, Zexus Air plans to launch services with Embraer E175LR equipment. It was registered in April 2013.

Indian start-up Zoom Air adds first aircraft

Zoom Air (India) (Delhi Int'l) has added its first aircraft, a Bombardier CRJ-200, to its fleet. According to the start-up, the jet will enter into service this month. The airline plans to maintain operations with five CRJ-200LRs out of Delhi Int'l.

Under its previous incarnation as Zexus Air (Delhi Int'l), the full-service start-up was able to secure its No Objection Certificates (NOC) from the Indian Ministry of Civil Aviation but reportedly failed in its attempt to secure an Air Operators Permit (AOP) from the Indian Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).

Zoom Air reportedly plans to offer flights to Aurangabad, Aizawl, Chandigarh, Dharamsala, Durgapur, Dimapur, Jorhat, Kulu, Shillong, Mumbai Int'l, Ranchi, Kolkata, Hyderabad Int'l, Srinagar, and Lucknow initially.

'Zoom' to Delhi from Kolkata via Durgapur soon

Feb 1, 2017

A little over six months after Air India withdrew its operation in the Kolkata-Durgapur-Delhi route, Zoom Air, a Delhi-based airlines, starts its operation in the same routes seven days a week from Sunday. Kaji Nazrul Islam Airport (Andal) will also act as the regional hub of the company.

Koustav Mohan Dhar, executive director and CEO of Zoom Air, told TOI: "We will be running scheduled 50-seater full-service flight daily from KNIA. We are keeping the introductory fare rather low.From Kolkata to Durgapur, the fare will be Rs 1,000 and from Durgapur to Delhi, the fare will be Rs 3,000."

There are plans to introduce a daily flight to Mumbai and Hyderabad. Zoom Air India has got a series of Bombardier CRJ200LR (long range version) and 2 CRJ-900 aircrafts. "We look forward to support both from the state government and BAPL. Being a scheduled operator, we are not looking for viability gap-funding. VGF is mostly sought by non-scheduled flight operators," said Dhar.

So what do you reckon, people?

How long before Zoom Air zooms into the pages of Indian aviation history, and a few dusty CRJs are added to the derelict aircraft ramps in Delhi?

Or do you think they will survive and eventually thrive?

The bird has been on the Northern remote stands at IGIA T3, where the biz jets park. I have seen the bird behind ours, last month, as we went towards runway 29 to take-off. The bird is seen there, regularly. I wonder what is going on!

Counting pages for discussion on the airline in this forum before talks of grounding or stake sales will give you answers.

Air Pegasus has made it till Page 3.
Air Costa has made it till Page 4.
Mehair has made it till Page 1
Ventura Airconnect does not even have a thread here.

I dont think Zoom Air, Trujet & Air Carnival can make it to more than 5 pages. Same might be true for all future regional airlines.

But aren't Air Costa and Mehair still operational, as are Air Carnival and Trujet?

Air Costa has 3 aircrafts - 2 are flying. 1 is down since few days. Not sure if they take delivery of 1 more aircraft that's planned.

Mehair has had 2 aircrafts and keeps changing routes based on local government's promotion and subsidies.

Air Carnival & Trujet has just started. Give it a year or two before the promoter's pockets get empty.

Kingfisher... Only 2 things get you what you want - Money and Good Connections (and alcohol) - VM had both (and king of the third). None of the current operators has such a good profile for fund raising for working capital & capex. Vijay Mallya was smarter than Subroto Roy.

Our part-time professor of Entrepreneurial Funding class in our MBA course showed us open examples of shell companies and fund raising. He showed me an example from DGCA's website - how KF had shell companies named VJM, Sid, Chameli, KF, Kings etc registered in Dublin, Cayman Islands and other tax havens leasing aircrafts to Kingfisher. Simply paying high rentals to the leasers will divert the bank loan funds to his own pockets there. He predicted the closure and about 2 years later KF was shut down. Thanks to Cape Town treaty, VJ got his planes back.

(Professor was a full time top employee with one of the companies that is usually associated by the opposition having our current PM's favors. He was at that time running 7-8 shell companies for his boss and was on his boss's speed dial list apart from his family.)

Zoom Air looks at starting operation from Arunchal's Pasighat

Feb 05, 2017

Zoom Air, India's 10th national scheduled airline which received an air operator's permit (AOP) on February 3, is in talks with the Arunachal Pradesh government to connect newly built Pasighat airport with its operational network, an official said on Sunday.

"We are looking to connect Pasighat airport in Arunachal Pradesh. In fact, we are in talks with the state government. We need to take some clearances from the state and Arunachal government also requires to get some clearances from Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA)," the airline's Executive Director and CEO Koustav Mohan Dhar told IANS.

"It would take some time to get all the clearances. To be realistic, the operation in Pasighat is expected not before end of March," he added.

The airline will launch its scheduled commercial operation on Delhi-Kolkata-Durgapur-Delhi route on February 12.

"We are staring operation from February 12 with the triangle services-Delhi-Kolkata, Kolkata-Durgapur and Durgapur-Delhi route. There will be daily flights on these routes," said Dhar.

He also said that the airline planned to start the reverse triangle operations in evening on the same route by early week of March.

Incidentally, the Delhi-based airlines is starting its operation from Kaji Nazrul Islam Airport at West Bengal's Durgapur after Air India withdrew its operation on the Kolkata-Durgapur-Delhi route in June last year due to "operational reasons".

The new operator will have flights in regional routes.

"We are doing Delhi-Allahabad Kolkata-Shillong as of now. We also start operation on Delhi-Amritsar-Delhi route. We will explore regional routes and will have services in many of such routes," he said.

On Friday, the DGCA granted the AOP to Zexus Air Services which will run the operation with the brand name Zoom Air.

"This certifies that Zexus Air Services Pvt Ltd is authorised to perform commercial air operations....in accordance with the operations manual and Rule 134 of the Aircraft Rules 1937," said the AOP.

Zoom Air eyes hub in Durgapur

Zoom Air will begin commercial operations on the Delhi-Kolkata-Durgapur-Delhi sector from February 15 with plans to connect Mumbai and Hyderabad to the steel town later in April. The carrier is even contemplating a maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) base for regional jets at Andal by year-end. Zoom Air CEO & director Koustav Dhar, who flew to Andal in a pre-launch flight on Sunday , said the airport would become the airline mini-hub as it launches flights to multiple destinations from here. Zoom will operate all the flights with 50-seater Bombardier CR-J 200 aircraft. It is a full-service carrier that will serve complementary meals on board.

"As more aircraft is inducted into the fleet, we will gradually add flights to Andal and eventually have four-five flights a day . We see potential business as the entire belt up to Dhanbad has a number of public sector giants as well as private firms whose executives currently travel via Kolkata," said Dhar.

Dhar said Zoom Air would aim to connect smaller cities like Durgapur with metros, thereby feeding other scheduled carriers like Air India, Jet Airways, IndiGo and SpiceJet with passengers. "There are many airports to which other airlines will not fly because they don't have an aircraft that can cater to 50-60 fliers a day .With our 50-seater jet planes, we are perfectly placed to fill the gap," said Dhar.

While Zoom is beginning operations with connections to Durgapur, Kolkata, Delhi, Chandigarh and Amritsar it plans to add flights to Surat, Bhavnagar, Mumbai, Aurangabad, Jabalpur, Shillong and Aizwal in the summer schedule and Tirupati, Vijaywada, Vizag, Aizwal, Pasighat, Zero, Allahabad, Gorakhpur, Indore and Bhopal thereafter.

The carrier has two CRJ-200s now and three more Bombardier jets, that are currently undergoing C-check, are expected to get the DGCA nod for operations by next month. With plans to further augment the fleet to 10 aircraft by year-end, Dhar said he needed to establish an MRO base and Andal was likely to be the airport of choice.

The Bombardiar Canadair Regional Jets used by Zoom Air are long-range versions fitted with high performance CF34-3B19 engines. "The planes are extremely versatile for short-sector flying and aptly suited for tier-II and tier-III cities, including a major support to the ministry of civil aviation's initiative for Regional Connectivity Scheme (RCS). In fact, we are the first airline to support and join RCS," said Dhar.

Promoted by Zexus Air Services, the carrier would also operate flights to Amritsar, Surat and Bhavnagar from New Delhi in the first phase of its operations with a fleet of three dry-leased CRJ 200LR planes.

The airline aims to have a fleet of five aircraft by April and plans to expand route network to destinations such as Tirupati, Vijaywada, Mumbai, Shillong, Aizawl, Pasighat and Zero (in Arunachal Pradesh), Allahabad, Gorakhpur, Indore and Bhopal, with a likely daily operations.

Two similar CRJ-200LR aircraft from Skyone FZE Aircraft leasing, UAE under dry lease would join its fleet by April 2017. This would take the total planes to five, a condition required under DGCA norms.

The airline has been operating a single service everyday on the Delhi-Kolkata-Durgapur-Delhi sector since February 15. Though this allows passengers from Durgapur to fly directly to Delhi, they have to return via Kolkata the following day. Apart from the daily to-and-fro between the steel city and the Capital, the re-routing of flights will offer an additional daily service between Kolkata and Jorhat in Assam.

According to a source, the high demand from passengers in Durgapur has led to the re-routing. "Since the launch of the service, at least 90% seats have been occupied in each flight," an official said.

Zoom Air operates the Bombardier CRJ 200 aircraft with 50 seats. Around 30 Delhi-bound passengers currently get to board from Durgapur as the remaining seats are already booked from Kolkata. Such is the demand that the fare on the Durgapur-Delhi sector has at times shot up from Rs 3,000 to Rs 16,000.

Apart from senior executives working in public sector undertakings like Sail, the flight has been attracting traders, local businessmen and Punjab-bound pilgrims. Once another aircraft joins the fleet, Zoom Air intends to offer a connection from Durgapur to Amritsar via Delhi. The Kolkata-Jorhat daily link is also expected to become popular once the direct connections start.

Zoom Air - India's Newest Airline - To Fly To New Cities Soon

March 26, 2017

Zoom Air, India's newest full service airline, plans to operate daily flights to Jorhat and Shillong from May 1, 2017. "Zoom Air introduces daily connections to Jorhat and Shillong wef 1st May 2017 with direct Flights (first time) between Kolkata to Jorhat and Jorhat to Shillong as well as Shillong-Kolkata...," its chief executive officer and director Koustav Mohan Dhar told NDTV Profit in an emailed response. Zoom Air, which marked its entry as the 12th operational carrier in the domestic aviation market on February 15 this year, also added daily direct flights to Durgapur from Delhi and Kolkata recently.

Zoom Air also plans to start direct flights to Jabalpur, Mumbai, Surat and Tirupati this summer, the airline said on its website.

"From mid-May we are starting our Delhi-Bikaner-Delhi-Jabalpur-Kolkata-Dimapur-Kolkata-Jabalpur-Delhi flight which shall also operate as direct Delhi-Amritsar-Delhi evening services," Mr Dhar said, adding: "From June 10th we start in our third aircraft into western India connecting Delhi- Surat-Mumbai- Tirupati- Mumbai-Surat -Delhi flights."


Zoom Air's entry comes amid strong growth in the market and will further deepen competition, say analysts. The daily flights to Durgapur from Kolkata and Delhi will give "advantage for people from Delhi, Kolkata and Durgapur to have a same day return connectivity", the Zoom Air CEO added.

Zexus Air Services-promoted Zoom Air expects its second and third aircraft to arrive in the first week of April and around April 14, 2017, respectively. "...second and third Aircraft , same CRJ-200LR in 50 seater configuration, have completed Mandatory C Checks in Europe and shall be landing in 1st week of April (Aircraft 2) and around 14th April 2017 (for Aircraft 3)," Mr Dhar said.

Zoom Air "shall induct the remaining 2 aircraft by end of June/July 2017", the email noted. This will consolidate Zoom Air's current fleet to three aircraft.

"As per DGCA requirements, we shall restrict till March 2018 to 5 Aircraft operations only," the Zoom Air chief added.

Commenting on the airline's business plans, he said: "The Airline started as a completely Debt Free organization with Director own funding into the project. But soon (post 5 aircraft), we feel we should be looking at Venture Capitalists and PE funds to assist us in funding and expanding the Business in a phased manner."
