Air India Express Hopes to Increase Daily Departures to Two by the Next Fiscal Year

By the end of the fiscal year 2025, Air India Express hopes to have doubled the number of daily departures it makes thanks to a strong focus on growing its operations both domestically and abroad.

Swift Growth Strategies

Air India Express is preparing for significant expansion following a few years of modest growth. Driven by the acquisition of more aircraft for its fleet, the airline intends to launch a number of new routes in an effort to double the total number of daily departures. According to Air India Express CEO Aloke Singh, "We currently run about 320 daily departures. Our goal for the upcoming year is to double the number of daily departures."

The airline currently splits its daily departure schedule equally between domestic and foreign flights. By the approaching winter season, it is anticipated that the existing numbers would have increased by 40%.

Giving Domestic Expansion Priority

Prior to privatization, Air India Express mostly served tier 2 and tier 3 cities in India on flights to the Middle East; however, there has been a noticeable movement in recent years towards domestic growth. Singh stated that for the next year and a half, the existing 50–50% deployment on domestic and international routes will continue, after which domestic operations are anticipated to take precedence. He clarified,

"The domestic India market leans significantly towards the low-cost segment, so it is logical that Air India Express will have a substantial presence in the domestic market." Every Month, Three New Aircraft Are Added

Building a sizable fleet is necessary for this ambitious strategy to succeed, and that process is already underway. The airline has added several new Airbus A320s and Boeing 737 MAX aircraft to its fleet; some of these aircraft were purchased from AirAsia India.

Current Initiatives for Expansion

A number of new services have recently been launched or announced by Air India Express. Notably, on February 2, a flight from Hyderabad to Riyadh is scheduled to launch, enhancing the airline's presence in Saudi Arabia by complementing its current route from Hyderabad to Dammam.

The airline is deliberately focusing on tier 2 and tier 3 cities within its domestic network, delegating important trunk routes to its full-service parent airline, Air India. 

One good example is the introduction of many flights to Ayodhya's recently constructed airport, which connects it to places like Bengaluru and Delhi.
