Abstract

This report deals with the analysis of data carried out on India’s air traffic stratification. The data was coupled with latest census data and relative index of development (RID) of connected cities to develop arguments for fleet rationalisation and aggressive yield management. While, it is recognised that sector and route specific data is retained by individual airlines, the data clearly shows that there is a case for inducting smaller aircraft on regional routes, developing more innovative yield management strategies and responsive scheduling. It is argued that there exists space for operators who can connect the B class towns in a feeder pattern that can both improve operating economies of the larger carriers while providing much improved connectivity to these cities.
