When the flight is cancelled, it is a sort of inconvenience for any passenger. Unfortunately, that happen all over the world and for all sorts of different reasons. Many passengers loose their money for the cancelled flight and rebook the flight.

In such cases, passengers are protected by under the provisions of Rule 133 A of the Aircraft Rules, 1937 and Ministry of Civil Aviation for the compensation for cancelled flight.


After the liberalization of Indian Economy in 1990s, many airlines started their operations in India. Earlier, there was the monopoly of Indian Airlines on domestic routes, but in 1993, launch of Jet Airways and Air Sahara was a significant event in the history of Indian Aviation Sector. Post-liberisation, Indian aviation sector experienced a phenomenal growth and many other airlines started their operations, but years later, due to the highly competitive aviation sector, many of those airlines either merged with the another one or closed their operations and exited from this business.But still, Indian domestic market remains a playground of at least six major airlines that include Air India Limited, Jet Airways, Kingfisher Airlines (fate unknown!), IndiGo, SpiceJet and GoAir. This post will give you a brief idea on these 6 airlines operating in the domestic sector of India.
