Sambhar Mafia - Cooked To Kill!

Get ready to be pampered

Business Standard discusses the unique business models of Paramount Airways and Club One Air in this article on Indian aviation sector. What’s interesting to note is Paramount’s decision to offer flat beds for a 3 hours journey from Delhi to Coimbatore / Cochin.

Paramount is also looking at converting part of the aircraft into a private space with some flat beds - at a fare that is equivalent to that of business class in regular airlines. But why do we need flat beds for a journey that, at the very maximum, will be three hours long?

“Well, it is a value-added service, and there will definitely be takers, especially frequent fliers,” says Thiagarajan. Covering routes popular among the business community, such as Delhi-Cochin, Delhi-Coimbatore, Coimbatore-Cochin and Chennai-Cochin, Paramount today has five Embraer jets (E-jets) from Brazil, and conducts eight flights a day.

  • Hi

    I flew Paramount yesterday 31st Dec from Chennai to Coimbatore. I would say that it is the BEST service I have ever seen from any airline in the world.

    Right from special Valet service ie. customer service staff greeting me as soon as got out of my car, the smart staff, lounge access in the ground and the amazing in-flight service. Food was great never thought Taj could make such good food to top it of it was served with linen, fine china and all the works you would expect in a 5star rest.
    If Paramount maintains these standards and offers business class services like this at lower than economy class fares JET, IC better be beware.
    Wish Paramount flies to Hyderabad and Bom too soon. Vishal

  • Paramount In-flight service is better than Jet. I am Jet airways Platinum JP frequent flier. I wish they have a frequent flier program soon as I really loved flying Paramount. Though the flight was full it was very comfortable as there was no middle seats. Lot of Leg space and great value for money.

    These guys are just doing great !
