Air Costa, the Indian regional airline, inaugurated daily flights on 10 December between Hyderabad (HYD)and Chennai (MAA) and Jaipur (JAI). The 507-kilometre route to Chennai is already hotly contested, with the four incumbent airlines, Air India (10), IndiGo (35), Jet Airways (19) and SpiceJet (42), providing over 100 weekly competing frequencies between them. The 1,093-kilomtere sector to Jaipur, will see Air Costa face less competition, but again coming from Indian LCCs IndiGo (daily) and SpiceJet (weekly). Both routes will be flown by the airline’s 72-seat E170s.
