Foreign countries seek permission for more flights to India

New Delhi: Reportedly, Air India’s progress on international routes is scaring foreign airlines and others. News is coming out that Air India’s recent actions have also helped in attracting more companies to the Indian region.

After being acquired by the Tata Group, Air India has performed admirably. Air India recently placed an order for 470 new aircraft. There are those who believe that Air India’s growth will miss others opportunities to enter the Indian market. This is expected to be reflected in the CAPA conference in New Delhi this week.

These people have intensified the pressure on the Indian government to allow more entry for international airlines. But in this regard, the government has taken an approach to help Tata. According to the Minister of Aviation, there is currently no position to encourage the entry of foreign aircraft into the market.

Turkish Airlines, Emirates, and Kuwaiti airline Jazeera Airways are among the airlines that want more flights to and from India. Vietnam and Indonesia have asked for more flights. Dubai has asked for an additional 50,000 seats a week on Indian routes.

India has been short of modern wide-body capacity for some time now. As a result, many Indian passengers used foreign airlines such as Emirates and Turkish Airlines to travel long distances via Gulf hubs.These airlines feel that as Air India becomes stronger, it will hurt their business.

Jyotiraditya Scindia, Minister of Civil Aviation, stated that the government is not interested in opening up the market to more foreign carriers or removing current restrictions.  He explained that the government’s position is that more Indian airlines should order bigger planes to meet the demand without forcing passengers to change planes.
