As per several researches and reports, the Middle Eastern and Asian markets may emerge as the largest for the aviation service providers. Countries like China, India and Dubai are on the top of the list, where market players are showing their interest. This is the reason people can see a number of players settling their bases in these countries. The Malaysia-based airline AirAsia recently commenced its services in India. It provided the lowest air fare to attract new fliers and has been quite successful so far. This has induced other carriers to bring down the cost and further improve their quality. Being an underutilised market, there is a plethora of scope, and new players are capitalising it to their fullest.
Air Asia recently launched some new flights, which marked initiation of its services in the northern part of the country. Most of them are on non-metro routes as rivals like SpiceJet, IndiGo and Go Air are already popular on them. A similar step has been taken by Air India – the flag carrier of the nation. It has recently announced operations on Delhi to Pantnagar route from the 14th of October. Now, travellers wanting to enjoy their vacations in the valleys or experiencing boat rides in Nainital can opt for these flights. Earlier, Kingfisher used to provide services on this route, but due to certain reasons, these were barred by the government. As per reports, operations will be resumed to this destination by Air India, which is planning to operate four weekly flights. Travellers can reserve their seats now, but their travel date has to fall on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday or Sunday.
Travellers planning an adventure trip to Jim Corbett Wildlife National Park or destinations like Ranikhet and Bhimtal can avail these services as Pantnagar is gateway point. Apart from this, the carrier has also launched operations to a number of other regional stations, including Lilabari, Silchar and Shillong. It has been operating flights to Indore, Mumbai, Delhi, Lucknow and other popular routes since years. The carrier has managed to be one of the leading airlines of the country by providing flawless facilities to almost all the cities of the country.
