Industry Analysis
The Indian aviation sector can be traced back to early 1910s. However, prior to economic liberalization in 1991, the aviator industry was mainly controlled by the government. Post 1991, private airlines were allowed to provide air service under “Open Sky Policy”. Since then several private airlines have ventured in the aviation business and the air traffic has also seen rapid growth. This led to intense competition and only a few managed to survive. Today, Indian aviation industry is one of the fastest growing aviation industries in the world. It is dominated by low cost carriers. The civil aviation industry is likely to register a CAGR of 16% for period 2010-2013.
Introduction to Indigo
Along with the venture of several private players came the trend for low cost private airlines, which promised a huge market in the Indian air space. IndiGo, from InterGlobe Enterprises was one among the major private players who pitched in to capitalize the untapped market in 2006. From its incubation days, IndiGo concentrated on its low cost and efficient model of operations, which sustained its business in a big way during the troubled market situations and rising oil prices. Within the first year of its operations, IndiGo grew exponentially in all spheres. Starting with owning 15 aircraft's within 2 years, IndiGo replaced the state run carrier Air India as the top third airline in India. There was no looking back since then. The airline went on to acquire their 50th aircraft from Airbus in less than six years, and also to place the largest order in commercial aviation history during 2011, all long with the strong adherence to low cost model, which makes it ranked the second largest player in terms of India’s domestic air travel market share with operations to 32 destinations and 355 flights every day.…...

Porter’s 5-Force Analysis for Airline Industry and GoIndigo in particular 1. Threat of New Entrants New entrants in the aviation industry face intense competition from the existing players and these new entrants themselves act as a huge competition to the settled players in the market. Barriers for new entrants: 1. High initial setup cost- The initial setup costs for the entrants include the airbus costs, setup costs, licensing costs, costs to airports, inventory costs, and many other costs including taxes. This increases the entry barrier to the new entrants who are willing to enter the market. 2. Existing player’s defence of market share- The existing settled players have a loyal set of customers, an established brand name and an extensive value chain. With the entry of a new entrant, the existing companies can easily defend their market share from the former. Additionally, the existing companies have an advantage of the......

The Future and Significance of Crm for Low Cost Operators of South Asia

...competitive strategy for low cost carriers such as Indigo Airlines within the southern regions of Asia. RESEARCH PROPOSAL Executive Summary The emergence of low cost carriers within the southern regions of Asia have brought about major success and reshaped the aviation industry within these regions. Though recent success have come about with the exploration of mass segments and low cost structures, this innovative business model is bound to mature with the external markets and consumers. With focus on India and Indigo Airlines, the issue of differentiation in a relatively highly matured market with relatively lower international barriers to entry have brought about the need to explore alternatives which create customer value. Customer relations management schemes and the emphasis on providing supplementary services is a method worth considering and the paper seeks to explore alternative customer management facilities that addresses the issue of deriving customer loyalty. Though the fast follower approach may have been criticised as of late, benchmarking several supplementary services against international industry leaders within southern and southeast regions such as AirAsia X could aid in Indigos ability to derive customer loyalty in relatively high cost-switch markets comprising of different segments of customers, lack of loyalty schemes and high number of substitute services. In order to implement customer management schemes, Indigo must take into consideration......

The Last Trustee of Indigo

...weaving, “Yellappa died.” The announcement was so matter-of-fact that it took my breath away. In the world of indigo dyes, Yellappa was a master craftsman, the last of the great dyers. It was as if a Picasso or Mozart had died. A genius dies in India and the news is met with silence. For me, as an anthropologist who is perpetually writing on the history of loss and erasure, it was as if Ishi, the last Indian of the Yahi tribe, had died. When Ishi died, a language died, a way of life died, and a set of dreams faded away. Today, ways of life are perpetually dying and there seems no way of remembering, recovering or redeeming them. I realise how the anthropologist Alfred Kroeber might have felt as he wrote Ishi’s story. There is no Yellappa story, just a few fragments of recollection, but I thought I would put them down. There are a few who knew him and this is what they told me. I am not the storyteller; just a cassette tape mourning the loss of a genius. The death of a natural dye Yellappa was the last of a family of great indigo dyers in Andhra Pradesh. Indigo was a legendary colour, a natural dye, which died when the organic chemists synthesised an artificial dye. Yet, the natural colour was not the same as the synthesised colour. It was like saying that the glass windows of Chartres Cathedral are the same after we recreated the stain glass windows. When natural indigo died, a way of life began fading away. In India, however, nothing dies fully. People keep it alive in......

...Indigosyntese Formål: Formålet med forsøget var at fremstille indigo, som vi senere kunne bruge til kype farvning. Apparatur –og kemikaliefortegnelse: * Konisk kolbe: 100 mL * Måleglas: 2*10 mL, 2*25 mL, 50 mL, 100 mL og 200 mL * Büchnertragt * Filterpapir * Gummiring * Sugekolbe: 250 mL * Spatler * Urglas * 2-nitrobenzalddehyd * Propanon * Ethanol * 2 M Natriumhydroxid * Natriumdithionit * Ethoxyethan Udførelse: 1 g 2-nitrobenzaldehyd overføres til en konisk kolbe, hvorefter 10 mL propanon tilsættes. Kolben omrystes indtil alt stof er opløst. Dernæst tilsættes 10 mL vand - og derefter 10 mL 2 M natriumhydroxid til opløsningen. Indholdet filtreres ved hjælp af en büchnertragt, og krystallerne vaskes med 25 mL ethanol. Sugekolbens indhold tømmes i dunken med organisk affald, og krystallerne skylles igen, denne gang med 25 mL ethoxyethan. Den brugte ethoxyethan skal, modsat ethanolen, ikke hældes i affaldsdunken, men derimod afdampe i et stinkskab. Til sidst vejes indigokrystallerne samt det urglas de overføres til (vejes selvfølgelig før overførelsen af krystallerne). Teori: Syntetisk indigo blev for første gang fremstillet i 1878 af den tyske kemiker, Adolf von Baeyer, der dannede stoffet, ved at få 2-nitrobenzaldehyd til at reagere med propanon. Reaktionen foregår i et basisk miljø og er exoterm, hvilket betyder at der dannes energi under reaktionen. Dette kunne vi se (rettere sagt mærke)......

7's Framework on Indigo

...Mallya watches his beloved Kingfisher Airlines collapse to dust, low-cost IndiGo has become the new market leader with its slow and steady approach within just six years of launch. As Mallya grounded more than half of Kingfisher planes to create a capacity vacuum,Indigo managed to not only increase its passenger traffic but also its fleet size. Moreover, while full time carriers focus on the experience of flying, IndiGo focused on what they thought would matter to its flyers -It communicated to the flyer his basic need of getting from point A to point B on time. Here are 4 reasons why the airline has managed to scale to the top, despite being the youngest airline in India. Indigo's stuck to its low-cost, single class model unlike rivals Jet and Kingfisher While Kingfisher and once market-leading Jet Airways bought rivals, flew multiple plane models and struggled to mix full-service and low-fare options, IndiGo stuck with its policy of offering one class of no-frills service on a single type of plane. Indigo has chosen to stick to the world's best-selling single-aisle aircraft, the Airbus A320. Selling and leasing back planes helps its balance sheet. As Mallya grounded more than half of Kingfisher planes to create a capacity vacuum,Indigo managed to not only increase its passenger traffic but also its fleet size. Reuters Secondly, it maintains a young fleet by selling and leasing back its planes. IndiGo uses six-year sale and leaseback agreements, so the airline is......

At Indigo: Fashion for Women we are an organization created, molded, and sculpted to provide top of the line current fashion for everyday women. In order to do that we need to identify our target customers, “By identifying and knowing our customers, you can assess their needs” (Foundation, 2015, p. 1). Identifying our customers has allowed us to become a solid brand in the clothing industry, but further identification is necessary be an elite competitor. Initially we identified our customers as women who wanted to love the way they looked, but we could not make that our one single identifier. We also came to the conclusion that religious beliefs and income were a factor into our initial customer base. We must now look further into what our target customer is through other identifiable areas. The two that stand out are buying motives and beliefs. Identifying the salaries of our target customer gives Indigo the ability to determine acceptable prices to our customers and our company to maximize profitability and customer loyalty. There are prices that woman are willing to pay for a product in particular, and there are prices women will pay that is directly related to their income. It is detrimental to consider the income of the women of our......

...air traffic implies 14% growth in passengers as evidenced from firm aircraft orders and latest delivery schedules. With yield management becoming the singular strategy lever for Indian Low-Cost Carriers (LCCs), cost structures assume high importance and structural asymmetries will decide the competitive edge for the airlines. However, much of these asymmetries in cost structure are inherited from the fleet strategy adopted by various airlines, hence normally have a long-lasting impact on their balance sheets. High operating leverage proves fatal in a cyclical downturn where balance sheet strength is vital. At the comfort of hindsight, bulk orders have benefitted IndiGo with valuable incentives, which have given it the structural advantage of lower rentals, while single fleet focus and strong balance sheet have lent IndiGo asymmetrical advantages on maintenance costs, redelivery expenses and supplementary rentals. That the other airlines have missed the plot thus far is a given, but the current growth phase of domestic aviation and low crude price outlook provide opportunity for them to shore up their balance sheet. Our domestic supply-demand model shows an implied annual growth rate of only 14%. This is the implied growth rate based on the capacity addition programs of domestic airlines. Our model accounts for all the operating airlines in India along with their planned capacity additions, hence reflects competition. We believe, barring an uneconomical way of short-term......

...THE 7’S FRAMEWORK OF THE INDIGO AIRLINES. Strategy - three key tenets for success of indigo are affordable fares, on-time performance and hassel-free travel. These may seem like big words, but I personally experienced this while flying the airline. The fare was the second-lowest on the sector I flew, and I picked the flight because of its superior on-time performance as compared to others on the same route. In fact, even in-flight, there was emphasis on these three tenets, especially on-time performance. As for hassle free travel, I found the planes to be extremely clean and soothing music was being played upon boarding and alighting from the plane. Focus on excellent customer service pays off It’s Indigo’s emphasis on ensuring a great customer experience during interactions with the airline that is doing wonders for the brand. Special attention is paid to ensuring consistency in service across the A320 fleet and the experience at the airport matches that on-board the plane. In congested Indian airports, Indigo has roving “check-in counters” where passengers with only cabin baggage can check-in with an Indigo official with a handheld device, rather than lining up at the check-in counter. Another simple, yet effective measure. Style - Being a low-cost carrier, all of IndiGo's flights have no Business class or First class sections. It offers only Economy class seating. To keep fares always affordable, IndiGo has designed a clean, comfortable and reliable airline without...
