Travellers who want to make an online air ticket booking in the Indian domestic sector will have more options from the next financial year. Foreign carriers are all set to enter the promising market with initiation of two new carriers. On one hand, there is Singapore Airlines, the flag carrier of Singapore strengthened by a partnership with Tata Sons; while on the other, AirAsia, the Malaysian low-cost carrier (LCC) set to enter Indian aviation. As a result of these entrants, the Indian airlines have started making their best efforts to strengthen their position.
Having an Illustrious End to 2013
In this aspect, the biggest turn around has been posted by GoAir, one of the LCCs in this country. An aviation foray of the Wadia Group, this airline was facing losses in the previous year and with domestic services only, there was less expectancy of it becoming profitable. Contrary to this opinion, after a successful soar in Go Air flight booking during the previous festive season, it returned to net positive income. This revival was also attributed to its change of economic policies. Nevertheless, it has to maintain this hard work to keep its position stable and improve its shares in the market.
This popular airline had initiated its services in November 2005 and its primary goal was to make air travelling cheaper. Offering cheap tickets at best prices, it rose to fame and was one of the favoured choices for domestic travel after its initiation. However, it faced several problems, which made it lose out in the race. The going seems to have become much better for this LCC currently. It operates to over 20 destinations with more than 100 scheduled flights daily. Apart from this, the airline also aims to start international services in the recent future after it boosts its fleet over 20 aircraft.
