Unlimited access to Cruising Heights along with 5,000+ other digital magazines and premium articles
CRUISING HEIGHTS is India's best known monthly aviation magazine with equal interests in air cargo, travel and tourism. In its four years of existence, Cruising Heights has received accolades from the Minister of Civil Aviation, Aviation CEOs, Airport Developers, Travel Agents Associations and others for its path-breaking stories.One of the first true aviation magazines of the country, Cruising Heights was started with the idea of supporting professionals in the airline business to make informed choices on a variety of subjects from ground handling to cargo to airport development-all of which are transforming the Indian aviation scene in mind-boggling ways. Later, due to the interest it generated and in response to demands from the travel and tourism industry stakeholders we have targeted the general reader-the educated Indian who is keen to be an informed Indian-to know what's happening in the business.
Cruising Heights' November 2018 issue focuses on the Indian aviation scene with domestic carriers mounting long-haul flights to foreign destinations: 148 new services have start this October and November with 82 new services by IndiGo alone. The cost-conscious Indian traveler has been suddenly swamped with so many flights to foreign destinations this winter and holiday season that he could have ever dreamt of earlier. The issue also discusses IndiGo's losses and analyses how IndiGo's founder Rahul Bhatia has the capability to weather the storm and help his airline keep its head in the skies despite the losses and the inhospitable atmosphere. There is also a story on how plane engine maker CFM is trying to overcome the problems it has been facing. Today, the LEAP engines - now on aircraft from four carriers - from the CFM stable have had a clear run with no major issues. Also in the issue: An infographic look at Singapore Airlines' longest flight in the world, a trip to relive history from Vistara, British Airways' celebration of the first trans-Atlantic flight and why easyJet has taken Netflix to court.
