An analysis of the current state of the Aviation business in India, along with a critical analysis of Low Cost Carriers, their strategies and impact on the Industry. Projections for passenger growth included.

The Aviation industry in India began with the birth of Tata Airlines, through the business relationship between Mr. Nevill Vintcent, a Royal Air Force pilot and Mr. JRD Tata, the first Indian to get an A-license. Tata Airlines became Air India in August 1946. In 1953, the Air Corporation Act nationalized all existing airline assets and established the Indian Airline Corporation and Air India International for domestic and international air services respectively.

These two companies enjoyed monopoly power in the industry until 1991, when private airlines were given permission to operate charter and non scheduled services under the ‘Air Taxi’ scheme to boost tourism. These carriers were not allowed at the time, to fly scheduled flights or issue air tickets to passengers. As a result, a number of private players including Jet Airways, Air Sahara, Modiluft, Damania Airways, NEPC airlines and East West Airlines commenced domestic operations. In 1994, following the repeal of the Air Corporation Act, private players were permitted to operate scheduled services. Ultimately the carriers with more efficient operations and strategies survived and by 1997, only Jet Airways and Air Sahara made the cut from the original group.

The next big change in the industry came in late 2003 with the emergence of India’s first no-frill airlines, Air Deccan. READ MORE >
