    35. 35. Service Gaps flow chart
    36. 36. Gaps in the present service design: GAP 1 • Lack of upward communication: • The employees of Indigo airlines are don’t do upward communication with their senior manager due to which manager can not able to understand what happening in the organisation. • The employees of “Indigo Airlines” are not able to implement the service of serve food to customers properly due to customers are not happy by the service of “Indigo Airlines”
    37. 37. GAP 2 • Absence of customer driven standard: • In the ‘economy class’ there is problem that Indigo airlines can not able to provide customers driven standard and quality of service to the customers. • In Indigo airlines the airhostess takes lot of time to deliver the order of customers.
    38. 38. GAP 3 • Failure to match supply and demand: • Customers are not taking the responsibility that to keep clean the environment of airlines and flight, due to which lot of cost incurred in the cleaning the flight and surrounding of airlines.
    39. 39. GAP- 4 • Lack of integrated marketing communication: • The advertising and promotional activities of the Indigo airlines is very low due to which there is the problem that customers are not aware about scheme and discount on flights. • Inadequate horizontal communication:
    40. 40. Service Gap Recommendations • GAP-1 • Improvement in upward communication • First of all the employees of the organisation have to encourage to do the communication with the group member and with the manager even also manager have to appreciate the communication of the employees and have to give feedback to the person who are doing communication with managers by that procedure we can able to do improvement in the upward communication of Indigo Airlines • Service recovery: • The Indigo airlines have to give training to the employees to the various parameters such as • 1. How to serve food to the customers • 2. How to deal with the customers • 3. How to meet the expectation of customers • Gap-2 • Customer driven standard: • The Indigo airlines have to give training to the employees that to how to behave ethically with the customers by the help of training programme and there implementation we can able to meet the customer driven standard • GAP-3 • Demand and supply: • To meet the demand of the customers and to keep the smooth supply of goods in the flight the ‘supply chain management’ should maintain properly and to meet the demand of customers. • GAP - 4 • Integrated marketing communication: • Indigo airlines should implement the ‘intranet’ facility to set the horizontal communication within the organisation due to which all problem of horizontal communication will be removed.
    41. 41. Final Recommendation • we recommend that IndiGo must increase its domestic operations by starting flights connecting to new destinations. • So using the cost leadership strategy, IndiGo can gain competitive advantage over its competitors as the first mover. • Once the above strategy is successful and results in promising revenue growth, IndiGo canuse extension to freight and chartered services as the next objective for further expansion
    42. 42. • Extension • Currently, IndiGo is concentrating only in domestic passenger flights. • However, the freight/cargo market and charted plane service are the areas that can prove to be good potential market for IndiGo. • Besides, chartered flight services are an untapped market for IndiGo. • Thus, IndiGo has a huge opportunity to expand in both these arenas.
