The saga of making of Cochin International Airport has been inspiring. A novel concept with its meticulous execution and a motivating leadership helped realize this extremely ambitious dream.

Breaking the ice with mood Indigo !

Airline passengers unlike those travelling by train or bus always like to wear a stiff upper lip   never wanting  to engage in a casual conversation with the fellow traveler

Most prefer to give a nonchalant “ Please  don’t disturb me I am busy..  “ look to those wanting to initiate any  conversation

But now the ice may be broken if Indigo has its way ! In the times of mobile technology muting  the interpersonal interactions in the society , this move could just make sure that people are cornered into talking to their fellow passenger instead of being buried in

Indigo : A Decade of Path Breaking Success !!

By

Amidst   turbulence in the Indian skies and strong  head  winds , Indigo today celebrates its 10th successful year in Indian aviation. A brainchild of the low profile Rakesh Gangwal  , the erstwhile CEO of US Airways  and Rahul Bhaita of Interglobe  India  , Indigo has been path breaking from the word  go

Ordering  an unprecedented 100 planes from Airbus in the Paris Airshow without even getting an Air Operating  Permit from DGCA  spoke volumes for the strategy and confidence of the brand

At a time where all Indian carriers were in the  red , Indigo focused on more important

The tug of war for Enhanced Bilateral Rights...What it means for India

By

While Indian Civil aviation ministry is still contemplating whether the 5/20 rule should stay or go , foreign carriers have been pressing hard for enhancement  of bi lateral flying rights.

Unfortunately the Open Skies policy is benefitting the foreign carriers and curbing the potential of domestic carriers like TATA SIA , Airasia India  etc who have the funds , infrastructure and caliber to operate international flights because they haven’t been there for 5 years and do not have 20 aircrafts.While newbies like Fly Dubai have been operating International flights from India , the Indian carriers have restricted rights owing to

Understanding Airline Sales

By
