SpiceJet, Vistara, AirAsia to fill Jet Airways’ domestic void by September, says CAPA


The interim but indefinite suspension of Jet Airways has left a large void but the situation is likely to normalise in domestic space as airlines are adding 51-66 more aircraft than their planned induction for the current financial year, according to aviation advisory firm CAPA.

“SpiceJet, Vistara and AirAsia India are accelerating fleet expansion by 51-66 aircraft above their original plan for FY20. SpiceJet will account for 30-40 of them. This should restore loss of Jet’s domestic capacity by September 2019,” CAPA India said.

Further, the aviation advisory and research firm also expects Indian carriers to induct 134-151 aircraft in 2019-20 (Apr-Mar) but on a net level, the operating fleet will only increase by 19-36 aircraft as much of the addition will compensate for the loss of Jet Airways’ capacity from the market.
