Alliance Air Eyes Domestic Expansion Within India

Air India subsidiary Alliance Air is planning to rapidly expand its domestic flight network within India. Having benefited from the Indian governments UDAN Regional Connectivity Scheme, a program aimed at making flying more affordable and widespread, Alliance Air is eyeing new routes.
According to CH-Aviation, Chief Executive C S Subbiah told Indian Newswire PTI about the airline’s expansion plans, saying:
“We are looking at flying to Jagdalpur, Kalaburagi (Gulbarga). These are the two new routes. The flight from Gulbarga will connect to Bangalore Int’l and later to Chennai. Jagdalpur route would be connected from Hyderabad Int’l then later to Raipur and then it would go to Bhopal.”
Subbiah went on to clarify that Alliance Air will be announcing a variety of new routes for the 2019/2020 winter season, with flights set to start over the next couple of months. All of Alliance Air’s new flights will be done using a fleet of 18 ATR72-600 aircraft. Alliance Air also has two ATR42-300s in its fleet.
The backbone of the Alliance Air fleet is the twin-turboprop ATR 72, a short-haul regional aircraft built in Italy and France by Aerei da Trasporto Regionale or Avions de Transport Regional (ATR). The number 72 refers to the aircraft’s single class 72 seat configuration.
