But CAPA believes that this could have been higher had there not been a freeze on the granting of additional bilateral rights with key markets. The freeze was the result of Indian carriers concerned about the level of access provided to foreign carriers (particularly from the Gulf) during a time when Indian international carriers were relatively weak and unable to deploy increased capacity to overseas destinations.
