Ramachandran said Jazeera is looking to increase its seat entitlements in India, but it is not interested in acquisitions and will grow organically.
Indian and Kuwaiti carriers can fly 12,000 seats per week, according to government agreements. "The last time seat revision was done in 2007, and there is a need to increase the allocation. Even if it is tripled it will not be enough," he said.
The lowest seat factor on Indian routes is 86 per cent and the airline gets mix of both migrant workers, corporate and leisure tourist traffic from India, he said.
Currently only around 11 per cent of its traffic from India flies onward from Kuwait and Ramachandran hopes to attract budget travellers from India on its London service beginning this June. "We will offer hot meals on the six-hour-long Kuwait-London flight," he said.
The airline flies to 27 destinations and along with London it will launch flights to Kathmandu, Dhaka, Al Ain (UAE), Bodrum and Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen airport (Turkey).
