Journey By Plane
Not much time has passed when there were only two airservice providers in India. The Indian airlines for domestic services. It catered to some neighbouring countries too. Then the Air India for international flights. These two government owned sectors had monopoly over the air corridors over India but with opening of the aviation sector to private operators many big names joined the fray in catering to the domestic commuters.
With companies like Sahara India, Jet Airways and many other companies offering their services more and more places got connected on the airservices map of India. The destinations were linked but the fare of travelling by air did not reduce instead it saw steep rise. This resulted in commuters moving away from air travel and thinking air travelling as last option. Thus, majority of companies are either running loss or are giving many lucrative offers to attract passengers.
The bad conditions of airport and the outdated equipments at these places have added to the misery of the commuters. The Aviation Ministry is trying hard to provide better facilities but the the number of airports has reduced the pace of improvement. Plus many accidents has gripped the air travellers who now are looking for alternate means of transport.
