NEWS | Capacity on India-Asia routes to go up by October

 India's private airlines Jet Airways, IndiGo and SpiceJet are set to add a large number of international flights by October, which are expected to ease fares. This is a long-awaited result of the Ministry of Civil Aviation's move to cease Air India's right of first refusal on overseas routes.

Having been granted permission for capacity increases, Jet Airways will add 14 weekly flights to Singapore, and seven each to Dhaka, Chittagong, Male and Dar-e-Salam. IndiGo will increase frequencies to Bangkok, Kathmandu and Singapore with 28 weekly flights. SpiceJet will start 35 additional weekly flights to Bangkok, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Kabul and Male.
Iqbal Mulla, president, Travel Agents Association of India, said: “It augurs well for fliers and travel companies, as the increase in flights will offer a wider choice of itineraries and bring fares down.”
