Tata Group Chairman N Chandrasekaran has unraveled his aviation strategy for the first time by saying that the company might show some interest in Air India after analyzing the data, being divested by the government. Chandra dmitted that the group could not run two airlines, Air Asia India(49% stake) and Air Vistara (51%) with just 15-20 aircrafts. Both the airlines have a domestic market share of only 6.8% as reported in Q1FY17.
Air India could completely change the international foray of the tata group by giving it a 16.9% share of the international market, making them the largest player ahead of Jet Airways, with a 14.5% share. Additionally, it would provide economies of scale over 119 aircraft would be added in one go including new Dreamliners.
Even in the domestic market, the deal could help the group in getting a substantial market share of 20%, Bureucracy Today has learnt.
