Video: New airlines to land in India: Good for flyers?

I had the pleasure of joining industry stalwarts Amber Dubey, Ayaz Memon, Govindraj Ethiraj, and Jitender Bhargava on Boom News’ Google+ India Hangout discussing the impending entry of new airlines AirAsia India and Tata-SIA and their potential impact on the Indian airline industry.

Govindraj Ethiraj is a journalist of repute and the moderator. Amber Dubey is the head, aerospace and defence practice, KPMG, Ayaz Memon is a journalist and sports commentator and Jitender Bhargava is a former executive director of national carrier Air India.

Do see the video, and please share your thoughts and views via a comment.
