Alliance Air is making a new foray into the international aviation industry. Alliance Air flights will schedule its flights from Indian cities to Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Nepal and Bangladesh. Alliance Air spoke to Moneycontrol about connecting the Indian region with these neighboring countries. Dates and schedules for the start of flights have not yet been published. However, the launch will undoubtedly boost tourism and allow Indian travelers to explore more destinations.
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Alliance Air operated flights to Jaffna, Sri Lanka. Now the airline uses its flights only in regional destinations. These destinations are mainly Tier II and Tier III cities. They are further expanding their operations in these cities. A recent travel destination where the airline operates its flight is Ziro in Arunachal Pradesh. The airline is also adding new routes for flight operations in the northern states of India.
With the entry of a large number of airlines into the aviation industry, growth in the travel and tourism industry will continue to rise. People will be able to travel and explore more. The CEO of Alliance Air even told Moneycontrol that most airlines have the same price range when it comes to tickets.
Competition will come when these airlines will have to come up with ways to attract more passengers to a particular airline. Before this dynamic travel situation took over the world, most airlines suffered huge losses and Alliance Air was also one of them. According to the report, the company shared losses of more than Rs 400 cr in the financial year 2020-21, while losses of more than Rs 300 cr in 2021-22.
