Seven New Airlines Now Serve India Following Jet Airways Collapse

It is a case of you win some, you lose some, as seven new airlines have started flying into India this northern winter. However, the net gain is only two airlines, as five international carriers have also exited the Indian market this winter. Despite the collapse of Jet Airways potentially opening opportunities in India, the market is problematic for both local and international airlines.
Exiting the Indian market throughout 2020 are Asiana, Air Manas, Brussels Airlines, Garuda, and Thomas Cook Airlines. Asiana ended its A330 services between Seoul and Delhi in July 2019. Air Manas wrapped up its 737-800 services between Bishkek and Delhi. Brussels Airlines axed its services to Mumbai. Garuda once flew to three Indian destinations but ended its flights to its last destination, Mumbai, in March 2019. And Thomas Cook … well, we all know what happened with Thomas Cook.
According to a report in CNBC, seven new airlines are up for the challenges of flying into India this winter. The new entrants are Air Tanzania, Arkia Israeli Airlines, Azerbaijan Airlines, LOT Polish Airlines, Nok Air, Scoot Air, and Vietjet Airlines. It is, you may agree, an eclectic mix.
