AirAsia India to introduce red-eye flights
Shekhar Niyogi, Kolkata, October 8, 2014
 

BUSINESS travellers flying on AirAsia India will have more travel options as the new LCC seeks to optimise aircraft utilisation by introducing red-eye flights.

 

Beginning February 25, 2015, AirAsia India will roll out late night and early morning flights. 

 

Mittu Chandilya, CEO, AirAsia India, said that travellers “who do not want to spend on staying the night in a hotel can return to their home cities” rather than wait for the next available flight out.

 

Business travellers would benefit from this, especially for those flying to and from tier two and three cities, noted Rajendra Churiwala, director-eastern region, IATA Agents Association of India.

 

P P Khanna of Diplomatic Travel Point New Delhi concurred: “These flights should be aimed at business travellers who fly frequently between smaller Indian cities and to destinations where hotel room rates are high, thus offering relief.”

 

AirAsia India currently flies to six cities in India, but will increase this to 10 by year-end.
