No Go Air at Chennai?

Just noticed that G8 don't operate any routes out of MAA at all. Anyone know why this is? Do they have Madrasophobia?

They have a small fleet, and they feel that it is more profitable to deploy the fleet elsewhere. Presumably they feel that having multiple daily frequencies on some major trunk routes is more profitable than trying to cover every major metro with a thin fleet.

They don't serve HYD either, although I vaguely remember flying them BLR-HYD at one point a while back...

i guess it makes sense for them to just focus on a few select cities....
