Vijayawada -Singapore? Seriously?


Why not. Vijayawada airport is the airport for the capital of Andhra Pradesh and Vijayawada Guntur catchment area is sufficient for a twice weekly (if not more) Singapore service. When smaller cities in Kerala have daily service to Singapore why not Vijayawada.

Haha... thanks I came to post this link and saw it already posted.
I am keenly watching this route. Having known both the airlines closely, it will be an interesting battle.

How does 6E expect to fill GAU-COK and GAU-ATQ! They launch these in the coming months.

They seem desperate to keep their 100 odd A320s in the air, at any cost.

Their thinking seems to be on the lines of 'keep the fares low and you'll get bums on seats irrespective of the route'.

And it seems to be working. Their flights are almost always full and they are running profitably.

I understand the tactic. But my opinion is that we still have many more routes that would rank above those. 6E doesn't serve Rajkot, Bhopal, Jamnagar, Diu, Bhavnagar, Leh, Nashik, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer and some more NE destinations. There is potential to connect each of the above with metros (upside of connecting potential) before launching GAU-ATQ! The RASK on the route would be very low. I do not expect more than 50 pax per day on the route, maybe 70 including NE connections.

Two separate points, here. One is as our Ameya Sir has written, 6E is dumping capacity on routes to obliterate competition, which they can afford for some time at least, as long as they are not doing that badly (though redness is approaching them as well).
Second, some of these destinations are those which 6E has clearly stayed off. the destinations are low-yield. BHO, for instance. GAU is high-yield, and hence, may pick up connecting traffic to offset some of the disadvantages. ATQ has a mixed clientele, and connections may get it to work, given 6E's low cost structure. JSA is high-yield, but seasonal. 6E likes to have a strong base with multiple flights a day to sustain it, which include high yield destinations, and others which they have to manage to, to garner favourable points.
Cheers, Sumantra.

Which one, Aseem? The choice of the planned Allahabad seems a bit strange to me. The city can barely sustain an Alliance Air AT7-6 at the Bamrauli Air base's tiny civilian conclave that has manual luggage loading and unloading. Bamrauli is also far from the city.
Cheers, Sumantra.

that's the question I am asking! Smile This has been the case with Allahabad ever since. Seems the city is destined to stay like that.

Wide-bodied aircraft are an aspiration, we have talked to manufacturers. We are looking at A330neo and Boeing 787, Chief Commercial Officer Willy Boulter told Reuters in Abu Dhabi, declining to go into details.

In early 2019, IndiGo plans to start flights to London with an Airbus A321 aircraft stopping at a mid-point that is yet to be selected, he said. Other international destinations for launch include Kuala Lumpur and Phuket, Thailand, in November.

The first batch of Airbus A321neo aircraft with 222 seats will be delivered next month, he said.
