《印度时报》报道,有印度“空中之王”之称的印度捷特航空公司主席纳里什·戈亚尔(Naresh Goyal)6月11日称,由于负税过高,印度国内的机票价格比中国高出300%。如果不改变这种高负税的情况,印度航空业将无法发展。不过他还表示,中国航空业的发展对印度借鉴意义不大,因为这两个市场无论是在民众的旅行方式、购买力还是航空公司的运作模式上都完全不同。

原文标题:Taxes make Indian airfares 200-300 per cent higher than China: Jet Airways chief Naresh Goyal

BEIJING: Air fares in India were about 300 per cent higher than those in China and some other countries because of high tax rates, Jet Airways chief Naresh Goyal said on Monday, asserting that the aviation industry could not grow with such taxation.

"The Indian (aviation) industry can't grow with the taxes. In fact, India is the only country in the world to impose a service tax on their airlines. Do you know that the fares of Chinese airlines are a third of the Indian carriers? Why is it so? Because there are no taxes here. In fact, the Indian fares are higher by 200-300 pc if compared with the world's other carriers, leave alone Chinese," Goyal told media here.

Comparing Chinese airlines with their Indian counterparts, he said Chinese airlines were are all state-owned and "have solid government backing, not from now but for a very long time. The Chinese government doesn't tax their own carriers and there is a lot of state support to them".

Elaborating on Jet's expansion plans, Goyal said "we want to go to a few places in Europe and we are looking at those destinations which will make money like Paris, Munich and Frankfurt to name a few".

Regarding joining a global airline alliance, he said "we are in talks both with Star Alliance and Sky Team. Let us see what materialises. That is all I can tell you at this point of time".




Jet Airways was in an advanced stage of joining the Star Alliance earlier, along with Air India whose induction into the global airlines grouping was put off due to its precarious financial health.

Asked about recent reports that his airline was intending to buy 100 Airbus aircraft, Goyal ruled it out saying "we are only planning to induct four more A330-300 aircraft by early part of the next financial year".

To a question on government recently allowing Indian airlines to directly import jet fuel, he said "ATF import is of no use and we are not considering it. When you don't have the infrastructure to do so, it cannot be an option".




Kingfisher, SpiceJet and Air India have taken steps to go for direct import of aviation turbine fuel.

Though he has not favoured government allowing foreign airlines to pick up stake in domestic carriers, Goyal said he would welcome any such policy initiative by the government.

On the tremendous growth witnessed in the Chinese aviation market and lessons for India, the Jet Airways chief said "no, you can't compare the Indian market with the Chinese one. The two markets are different in the sense of the kind of travel that takes place in China, the purchasing power of the people and the kind of carriers that exist here. All are different from the ones in our own country".

The government treats airline travel as a luxury. Till the day when it starts considering air travel as a basic necessity, fares cannot fall. Secondly, it is also important to have adequate infrastructure to manage the huge traffic.

Tax free Air Travel will be the demand of the common man. To add to the demand of Tax free petrol. Government is now trying to make these tax free and tax Indian people for the food they eat, house they live and clothes they wear, air they breathe, water they drink. Fantastic. When will the final ball be bowled? Nerve wrecking, heart breaking moments....

Better stay out of India & become a NRI. The Indian Bureaucracy will lick your feet when you send the dollars. The builders will be happy chasing you buying their premium luxury flats. The automakers will approach you to buy one of BMWs or Mercedes. The Indian companies will like to hire experienced global personalities which can give them exposure. Even today the customs officer is happy to bargain to get a 20$ Dollar note instead of 2000 INR. That's the state of India and Indian currency.

That is not true. It is a lie. Even though the fares are low compared to Emirates and british airways, the service is poor. Everyone is scared of the security, aircraft airworthiness. People are scared to go via Mumbai and Delhi, because of the delays and transit problems. It is the airlines greediness that is the problem. It is the airlines unprofessional and insensitive attitude that is the problem. Is the jetairways next to King fisher in closing the shop?

But in China there is no freedom to shout,rave and rant. In China,corrupt people are hanged.In China,not only airfares,but all public necessities are subsidised and cheap.How can we allow all of this in India?Definitely not.

Indians like to eat,breathe and drink freedom.Starvation, hypocrisy, poverty, etc.are better than losing one's freedom.Let all of us Indians rot in our eternal freedom to do whatever we like.

what a joke!!
Say a word against Chinese Govt in China and you'll be killed by State. In India you can criticize govt endlessly but State will not kill you. Corruption in China is much greater than India. Poor in China suffer horrible life and people in high Govt positions enjoy. We say lot of things about life and crime in Bihar and UP. But entire China is like Bihar or UP.



Re: No comparision with China
by Ashok Mishra on Jun 11, 2012 12:22 PM
China is much much better than India in infrastructure, development in all field, in space technology, in economics but less than in corruption.
