Tarun Shukla at the Mint profiles the downfall of Paramount Airways

Over the last few months, I have grown to respect Tarun Shukla. Tarun and his colleague P.R. Sanjai at the Mint newspaper (a joint venture of The Hindustan Times and The Wall Street Journal), take the time to well research and write, analytical stories on the Indian aviation industry.

This week, Tarun has detailed the rather rapid decline of Paramount Airways, one of the early success stories of Indian commercial aviation. There is an interesting collection of stories which detail the timeline of the crisis at Paramount which has left the carrier with only one aircraft in its fleet.

I recommend you take the time to read both stories.
