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' October issue takes a look at the Jeh Wadia-led GoAir to piece together the GoAir saga. Over the last few years the carrier has grown in strength and as it spreads wings internationally, it finds itself in a unique position. In an industry where the glamour quotient is high, GoAir is one of the silent performers and will complete 13 years of unhindered operations this November. The issue also looks at how the Cochin International Airport - that stopped functioning for nearly a fortnight since it was totally flooded - came back with a bang in 10 days after the flood waters had receded. On the manufacturers' list, the issue highlights the coming out of the first B777-X non-flying static test airplane that remains on course for certification of the type in 2020. The news story focuses on the aircraft that offers more range and payload than competing airplanes but also uses 12 per cent less fuel. Plus: All our regular features.
