Spend­ing a Size­able For­tune to Stay Profitable

Business Today - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

This refers to your ar­ti­cle on com­mer­cial air­lines ( Tak­ing a Dive, Septem­ber 4). Def­i­nitely, the ef­fects of de­mon­eti­sa­tion fol­lowed by GST im­ple­men­ta­tion have put a break on the growth of do­mes­tic pas­sen­ger traf­fic. But the prime rea­son for the fall in traf­fic is the hike in tar­iffs by ma­jor car­ri­ers. There may be many in­ter­nal prob­lems like high- cost avi­a­tion tur­bine fuel and fre­quent flash sales, the ma­jor air­lines have to spend a size­able for­tune if they want to stay profitable. B.S. Acharya, Ber­ham­pur
