BIAL in talks with Indigo, Air India for South India hub

“For years India did not have an airline that had the gravitas and an airline-airport partnership that would enable the creation of a hub. This was amazingly capitalised upon by our neighbours in Singapore and Dubai by creating fantastic hubs. I think the time has come for Indigo and Air India to create an airline-airport partnership which will create a hub here,” he said. 

Earlier this year, Union civil aviation minister Jyotiraditya Scindia revealed the government’s plan to transform Indian airports into aviation hubs, while urging domestic airlines to help set up an international civil aviation hub in the country.

As for players, Tata-owned Air India, alongside expanding its domestic footprint, is exploring a hub in the south of India, its chief executive Campbell Wilson had said. Given AirAsia, which is now a part of Air India, had a huge hub in Bengaluru, the airport stands a high chance of becoming the second hub for the airline after augmenting its operations in Mumbai.
