Big News:

What is your call on Airline stocks which have rallied by about 27% in March. SpiceJet and InterGlobe Aviation have rallied by about 27 percent in March while Jet Airways rose 1.3% in the same period.

Well, experts are of the view that the recent passenger growth data was encouraging and SpiceJet is in talks with lessors to lease some of Jet Airways aircraft, and InterGlobe remains to hold a dominant position in terms of market share.

As Jet Airways is struggling to get an infusion from an external source and its existing shareholder Ethiad might exit this company entirely, investing in Jet Airways should be avoided till further stability is visible on the cards, suggest experts.

Indigo, with the majority of market share in this space, has become far too costly as market participants shifted gears towards Indigo at Jet’s cost. Samco Securities Ltd maintains an ‘Avoid’ for Indigo and a ‘Neutral’ stance for SpiceJet.
