‘India is United Airlines' largest offline market worldwide’

Mumbai: United Airlines has deemed India as its biggest offline market and plans to ramp up its sales and marketing activity in the country even though the airline is not likely to fly into India in the near future. United Airlines managing director, Sales - Europe, Africa, the Middle East and India, Marcel Fuchs told Express TravelWorld in an exclusive about the high priority the airline accorded to the Indian market.
United Airlines is keen to push its economy plus product in India as well as low-fare carrier Ted.
The Airlines is also looking at driving growth of Indian traffic through international gateways, apart from Western Europe like Singapore and Japan. Regarding the likelihood of operating flights into India, Fuchs said, "Air fares need to stabilise in the wake of massive capacity addition following the deregulation on the Indo-US route. These are simply unviable at current levels."
