Budget carrier IndiGo has emerged as an unintended beneficiary of the Jet Airways debacle with it first expanding its market share to 47% and then getting 38 out of 118 plum Delhi slots which were earlier held by Jet Airways, CNBC-TV18 reported citing unidentified sources.
Grabbing a total 127 slots out of 766 vacated by Jet Airways, IndiGo has got hold of the second most number of slots after rival SpiceJet, which has 130 slots, mostly of Mumbai. Vistara is third in the list, with a total of 110 slots.
The committee comprising officials from DGCA, Airport Authority of India and private airport operators has allocated 479 Jet slots so far which have been distributed among GoAir, AirAsia India and Air India as well, CNBC-TV18 said.
Earlier, a report from Prabhudas Lilladher revealed that other airlines have benefitted from the Jet's loss. However, IndiGo had grabbed the largest share of the pie.
