Indian Carriers Are All Fuelled Up But Have Nowhere To Land


India’s aviation growth is set to take a hit as key airports around the country have run out of preferred slots and parking space, putting the squeeze on the growth plans of domestic carriers.

The problem is especially acute for newer carriers such as Vistara and AirAsia India, which are still in the initial phase of expansion and have been left with “undesirable” slots, experts said.

Airports in Mumbai and Delhi are only offering slots between 11 pm and 5 am. Pune and Goa are not offering slots for any new flights in the daytime. Airports in Bengaluru, Chennai and Kolkata do not have any new slots at peak timings– 6 am to 10 am in the morning and 5 pm to 9 pm in the evening.

Airports in smaller towns and cities such as Jaipur, Jammu, Srinagar and Patna among others are not offering desirable slots either, frustrating domestic airlines. Operators say they are working on improving efficiency and thus increasing flight movements.  Read More
