Prolonged Flight Suspension Can Help Domestic Rivals: Analysts
Jefferies analyst Prateek Kumar suggests that if the suspension is prolonged, other airlines will take the opportunity to grab onto the market share vacated by Go First. He adds that domestic rivals that are adding capacity would look to avail the slots, thereby increasing their market share.
Go First’s Financial Troubles and Potential Opportunities for Rivals
Go First’s financial troubles may result in potential opportunities for domestic rivals to strengthen their market position. The suspension of Go First’s operations has created a void in the market that can be filled by other airlines. Rivals will look to expand their fleet, routes, and services to grab onto the market share vacated by Go First.
Implications of Go First Crisis
The Go First crisis reflects the challenging situation that Indian airlines are currently facing. With rising fuel prices, high taxes, and a competitive market, airlines are finding it challenging to maintain their operations.
