The new services will tackle the scarcity of capacity in the industry to a great extent. Government has temporarily allocated 50% of the grounded Jet Airways domestic slots to its competitors. Besides, Jet Airways’ international flights are also distributed, and Air India received the highest share. The availability of new services will help to reduce the airfares across the routes, which drastically increased after Jet Airways’ suspension of operations.

Meanwhile, Air India recently discontinued its direct flight to New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport due to reduced demand. Mumbai-New York flight service was causing much loss to the airline. Due to the closure of Pakistan’s airspace, the flight was temporarily suspended in February and was about the resume services in June. However, Air India will not be resuming the service. The flying time of US-bound flights increased owing to the closure of Pakistan’s airspace.
