Looks like this airline is not gonna last long, too much overcapacity and less demand.

October 30, 2016

Trujet today announced a new non-stop flight from Hyderabad to Kochi from November 20 to January 18, especially for the devotees going to Sabarimala in Kerala. The special flight, targeted at pilgrims visiting Sabarimala which houses the famous hill top temple devoted to Lord Ayyappa in Pathanamthitta district will operate daily.

“We are proud to offer Sabarimala special flights between Hyderabad and Kochi. After Tirupati (AP), Shirdi (Maharashtra), Sabarimala is in line with our network strategy of offering smooth connectivity to various pilgrimages. The schedule will ensure optimum utilisation of our guests’ precious time even as they can minimise their hotel costs,” MD of Turbo Megha Airways Pvt Ltd Vankayalapati Umesh said.

“We also take care of last mile connectivity by providing Kochi airport-Pamba bus service (on chargeable basis). We hope patrons will avail of this unique schedule in big numbers,” he said. The Kochi airport is located around 190 km from Sabarimala and Pamba is the main halting point on the way to the popular hill shrine, whose main pilgrimage season is from November to January.

Horrible timings. Why should anyone choose Trujet, this sector has 6 other nonstop flights at more decent timings. In addition, Trujet is known for its cancellations.

Its a Sabarimala season special. They offer a bus service to Sabarimala (on payment basis) as well. It should click if they keep the promise of the connection service.

Has Trujet cut down services to BLR? Their GOI and RJA flights have been regularly cancelled for the last few days.

I had feared the worst for this airline. Looks like they are doing ok. Touchwood!

But going from 5 to 15 planes in little more than a year is an overkill methinks. I hope they have got their plans in place.

Would be sad if they went the Air Costa way.

I flew them recently from HYD to Tirupati and back, and they were nearly full both way. Prices were lower than Spicejet and Air India and but not that cheap. They do offer a snack on the plane.

Still going from 5 to 15 is a concern as some of the routes may not have much traffic. For example on the same day I went to Tirupati they cancelled the HYD to RJA flight.

India's TruJet to wet-lease ATR turboprops for growth

TruJet Chief Financial Officer, KG Vishwanath says the Indian regional specialist will wet-lease seven additional ATR turboprops by March 2019. TruJet currently operates three ATR72-500s and two -600s on scheduled flights to 14 cities across India's central and southern regions.

Speaking to The Hindu newspaper, Vishwanath said the use of wet-lease aircraft would allow TruJet to more rapidly expand its network. He did not specify from whom the aircraft, presumed ATR72s, would be leased but TruJet has been linked to talks with Jet Airways over its use of their unwanted Avions de Transport Régional fleet.

TruJet in talks with Jet Airways to sublease up to 7 ATRs

Aug 17, 2018

Jet Airways is in advanced stage of discussions with TruJet to sublease up to seven of its ATR planes to the regional carrier as it seeks to reduce costs and mop up additional revenues amid cash drought, according to an industry source.

These planes are likely to be subleased with its complete crew, maintenance and insurance.

The Naresh Goyal promoted full service carrier currently has 15 ATRs in its fleet. TruJet, which started operations in July 2015 has an all ATR fleet. The deal may be stitched by this month, the source privy to the development said.

The Mumbai based carrier had attempted to phase out these regional jets in the past as well. "Both Jet Airways and TruJet are in the advanced stage of negotiations on the ATR deal. As per the on-going discussions, TruJet will initially lease seven ATRs from Jet Airways," the source said.

While TruJet confirmed its discussions with Jet Airways, the latter said that "it continues to evaluate all possible alternatives".

The source said that the sublease period was likely to be for five years, and under a wet lease arrangement, adding, "If the deal gets through, TruJet could opt for more such planes from the airline."

"We are working options to induct up to seven aircraft for short period from Jet Airways," a TruJet spokesperson said.

The Hyderabad based airline had last month said it plans to acquire five to seven ATRs and expand the network to 20 more routes by the end of FY19.

The carrier currently has five ATR-72s and connects 14 destinations including some under the Centre's regional connectivity scheme, Udan.

“Jet Airways continues to evaluate all possible alternatives to ensure optimum utilisation of its fleet," a Jet Airways spokesperson said.

"Owing to our quiet period, we're unable to respond to further specific queries," the spokesperson added.
