IndiGo’s massive expansion out of Mumbai and Delhi Terminal 2

A few slots held by Jet Airways at Mumbai Airport have been temporarily re-distributed among other airlines. Vistara and AirAsia India were the first to add flights from Mumbai. SpiceJet was next, they added a handful of flights only since they are currently dealing with MAX groundings. Next in line was IndiGo which announced additional flights from Mumbai Terminal 2.

This meant that Mumbai was the second airport after Delhi where IndiGo has split domestic operations. IndiGo even went on to add a couple of international flights out of Mumbai and Delhi. At that, time IndiGo had hinted at further expansion from Mumbai and Delhi.

Remember 6E53XX series flights arrive and depart from Mumbai Terminal 2. 6E 2XXX series flights arrive and depart from Delhi Terminal 2. These flights are temporary additions as slots are only transferred on a temporary basis for now and most of these flights are bookable till July 15, 2019.

IndiGo was taking deliveries of new A320neo and had even taken delivery of a couple of second-hand A320ceo. Reports are suggesting that IndiGo has inducted around 100 pilots from Jet Airways which will help them solve their pilot crisis.

What do you think of the new capacity addition by IndiGo in the days ahead, which will continue to help them being the biggest player in the market? 

Comments

  1. Are these flights really temporary.
    What if Jet air is not revived , will these flights not become permanent in that case?

  2. Where was Air India while all these slots were being re-distributed? Haven’t heard of them launching new route except BOM-CMB.
