Recent increases in traffic rights between India
and the Gulf countries have given the latter's
national carriers an edge over Indian airlines
Indian airports are losing their position as
hubs and European carriers are feeling the
pinch as traffic diverts via the Middle East to
lucrative US destinations and South America.
With no home market, the likes of Abu Dhabi,
Qatar and Dubai have positioned themselves
as hubs for Indian traffic, initially having
started with the labour market.
Already Indians top the list of the highest
through-transit traffic in Dubai international
Airport. This has made it imperative to
fast-track Air India membership into the Star
Alliance that will allow it to reap benefits
by tapping the expanse of destinations and
frequencies of some 28 airlines.
As Air India works towards joining the
alliance with the process of IT integration on
its way for seamless connections between
domestic and international flights, the main
focus will be developing Mumbai and Delhi
-- the two main hubs for Star. "Air India will
play an important role as it will give feed to
secondary destinations," said Christian Klick,
vice president, Star Alliance.
On the recent FAA downgrade of India's
safety rankings to Category 2 that does not
permit codeshares nor increase in flights
to the US, Klick says this will not affect the
integration process. "It is a measure taken by
two countries. We see Air India reaching a
new position (compared to five years ago)."
Klick is however clear that the
alliance membership "does not solve
your economic validity. It cannot be a
guarantor." However, Air India will have
access to the joint purchase bulk deals
Star has been successful in negotiating
for interested members. For instance the
alliance has worked with members for
rates for purchasing economy class seats.
"We are identifying other areas such as
inflight amenities where members are
willing to work on joint specifications ...the
opportunities are endless," adds Klick. He
says this need not involve all airlines.
Air India will have access to all sourcing
including Star's major initiative on fuel savings
at over ten airports where bulk deals have
There is no firm joining date - a new
member has to connect its system seamlessly
to Starnet and also integrate its frequent
flyer programme and carry out data
exchange with other members. Further,
contractual relations have to be entered into
with each member carrier to allow for data
exchange, said Klick. "All this takes time."
Air India looks to Star to battle Gulf influx
"We see Air India reaching
a new position (compared to
five years ago)."
