SpiceJet mulls domestic capacity expansion

New Delhi: Low-cost carrier, SpiceJet, which has around 12% market share, is looking at expanding its capacity in the domestic market even as it is awaiting permission to fly on international routes from the civil aviation ministry. Samyukth Sridharan, chief commercial officer, SpiceJet said that the company will get delivery of four new aircraft by end of this year and three new planes by next year. “We are looking at adding more frequency in the routes already operated by us,” he said.

On the horizon could be busy sectors connecting major metros and mini-metros of the country like New Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Chennai and Bangalore. This is on back of recovery in the airline passengers, which recorded a jump of around 23% in January 2010 compared to the same period year ago. Sridharan added that the airline could also look at tapping into Tier II and Tier III cities, which are still not serviced by it. Though he said that the airline has identified gaps, Sridharan refused to indicate the cities where SpiceJet could start operations.

With the recovery in airline traffic, the company had recorded a profit of Rs 105 crore in quarter ending December 2009 compared to a net loss in the corresponding quarter last fiscal. Talking about the airline’s international expansion plans, Sridharan said that the company is expecting to get the go-ahead from DGCA in a month and a half. “We will possibly start our international operations in 2010,” he said.

I agree that the Jet Airways and Kingfisher are unlikely to start international operations from TRZ (even though I would love to have TRZ-BRU Jet Airways flight or a TRZ-LHR Kingfisher flight). But they should provide convenient connections from TRZ to the metros from where they do international operations. For example, Jet Airways provide excellent international connectivity from MAA and BOM. But it is not serving TRZ to connect it with either MAA or other metros for onward international journey. Jet Airways has two flights to IXM from MAA one in the morning (7 AM from MAA) and one in the evening to connect passengers from and to IXM (Madurai always get lucky). Why a similar service is not there for TRZ? Passengers arriving by Lufthansa, Jet Airways, Air France, British Airways, Qatar, Emirates, Etihad, Air India, Thai Airways, Singapore Airlines, Malaysian Airlines land at MAA mostly in the night time (between 11 PM to 5 AM). There is no onward connection to TRZ until 12.45 PM next day offered by Kingfisher that has a daily service but it is good mainly for domestic connections. (I am not mentioning AIE services). Even from CMB or KUL you get flights to reach TRZ ~8AM but not a single one from MAA. What a pathetic situation!

TRZ needs direct international service to South East Asia and Gulf. It ALSO needs convenient connections to other metros. AIE and low cost airlines like Air Asia can cater the former and the JetKonnect and Kingfisher should provide seamless connection to MAA or BLR or BOM or DEL. Unless this happens we will not see growth at a pace we all would like Trichy and the region.

TRZ has a significant potential to be tapped into by these two lead private airlines. Jet Airways could do a CMB-TRZ-HYD or CMB-TRZ-MAA or CMB-TRZ-BLR. Even if they don't do that they could try a TRZ-MAA-BOM or TRZ-MAA-DEL in the domestic sector so that TRZ is well connected with other metros from where Jet Airways fly internationally. Kingfisher should reconnect TRZ with BLR and beyond.

Paramount was connecting TRZ with MAA by having two flights but has no international operations. Lately they stoped the morning service to serve TRZ only in the evening. This service is good for people arriving from Northern cities to reach TRZ, but not for going back from TRZ to northern cities as you have to spend the night at MAA.

Hope the airlines do the homework!

Jet Airways plans more flights to Colombo from Indian cities


Mumbai: Naresh Goyal owned private air-carrier, Jet Airways, plans to enhance the frequency of its flights to the Sri Lankan capital, Colombo, over the next six months, a Jet Airwyas official said. The airline presently operates one daily flight between Chennai and Colombo.

"We plan to launch a few more services to Colombo from Indian cities over the next six-months," a Jet Airways official told PTI here.

Besides, Mumbai and Delhi, the airline is also exploring a few other destinations to launch these services, the official said.
There is a huge potential on the sector, which needs to be tapped, the official said, adding," the airline expects a good passenger demand once these services are commenced." Jet Airways is also expected to fly to South Africa shortly, the official said.

Passengers are hit after the discontinuation of Tiruchi-Sharjah flight.

DUBAI: The Tamil community settled down in United Arab Emirates has decried the sudden cancellation of the Chennai-Tiruchi-Sharjah flight of Air India by the end of last month citing route rationalisation by the airline.

“It was a wrong decision taken by the airline. This move has hit a large number of people of the central and southern districts of Tamil Nadu employed in the five northern Emirates of the UAE,” observed a cross section of the people. They demanded the immediate restoration of the service.

The daily service on this route, which had been one of the successful services of Air India in the past, was withdrawn apparently owing to the poor load factor on the Tiruchi-Sharjah segment. Though Air India Express is operating the Chennai-Tiruchi-Dubai service daily, many feel that the timings are not convenient to the people returning home.

The Dubai-Tiruchi Air India Express leaves here at 6 p.m. and the people have to report at the airport at 3 p.m., due to which they will be wasting a day’s leave.

The Sharjah-Tiruchi flight used to leave at 9.30 p.m. and the people could reach their homes in Tamil Nadu even before their leave commenced the next day.

A large number of Tamil labour workers are employed in the five Northern Emirates of Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Qailwan, Fujairah and Ras Al Khaima and Sharjah airport was a very convenient boarding point for them. Now they have to come to the always congested Dubai airport to board the Air India Express, braving the serious traffic congestion on the Dubai roads.

Since Air-India Express is a budget airline, re-routing and revalidation are not allowed even during emergencies. Moreover, the ticket fare from Dubai-Tiruchi is higher than the ticket fare from Dubai to Chennai via Tiruchi.

Air Arabia has planned to introduce daily flight service from the UAE to Tiruchi shortly, taking into consideration the traffic potential in this sector. It is surprising that Air India has withdrawn this very useful flight service citing poor patronage at this juncture,” observed Duraisamy Ganesan of Perambalur district and Mr. S. A. Munavary of Tiruchi city, both employed in a ceramic factory in Fujairah.

If Air India is not inclined to re-introduce this service, then the timing of the Air India Express should be rescheduled so as to leave Dubai at 9 p.m., so that the people could save a day’s holiday, they added.
