Raju: New strategy soon to boost airline performance

The plans follow the continued “unsatisfactory performance” of Indian airlines in taking on foreign competition, a cause of concern.

The government is considering a new strategy to motivate domestic airlines to perform and plans to have a provision where overseas flying rights of non-performers could be taken away.

The plans follow the continued “unsatisfactory performance” of Indian airlines in taking on foreign competition, a cause of concern.

“We have to work out a strategy that will motivate our players to perform. The reality is that Indian players are not able to perform — neither the public nor the private sector (airlines),” civil aviation minister P Ashok Gajapathi Raju said. He was replying to questions on the performance of Indian carriers with regard to the bilateral air traffic rights granted to them.
